More cool togs (and other stuff) seen at the Hall of Fame last weekend.
This one, of course, needs no introduction.
The dress below was worn by Petula Clark, presumably while singing "Downtown" somewhere. The home-made bass guitar and Hohner electric piano to its left, BTW, were used in the recording of The Zombies "She's Not There." Talk about jaw-dropping.
Since you'll never guess, I will note that this is a stage outfit and a pair of roller skates belonging to the late great Ritchie Valens. The amp head bottom left was the property of Duane Eddy. How cool is that?
Perhaps my favorite thing in the whole museum -- Keith Richards' sweater, the one he wore on the '69 Stones tour and which can be seen in Gimme Shelter. One suspects he ripped it off from Anita's clothes closet.
And last but not least -- when I first saw this, I thought "They let Mr. Rogers into the Hall of Fame"?
Actually it was worn by Sam Cooke, presumably in an attempt to get a piece of the lucrative Perry Como market.
