American blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa unveiled his memorabilia case inside Hard Rock Hotel on Monday.
The display, located next to the Dragon Salon in the HRH Tower, includes a Versace suit, black leather shoes, sunglasses and a custom, limited-edition model of a Gibson Les Paul Gold Top guitar that were featured during the music legend’s sold-out show inside the Royal Albert Hall in London. During the legendary performance, Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Eric Clapton hopped on stage for a special duet. The show was filmed for the “Joe Bonamassa Live from the Royal Albert Hall” DVD, which went platinum by selling more than 100,000 copies.
To help commemorate Bonamassa’s career milestone, the entertainment icon was joined by members of his band including drummer Anton Fig, also known as the drummer on CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman,” and bassist Carmine Rojas. In addition, friend and founder of RockandRollGallery.com Chris Vranian and Bonamassa’s producer Kevin Shirley were present in support of the artist. A group of fans cheered as the curtain dropped to reveal the memorabilia display.
During his solo career, Bonamassa released 10 albums, four live CDs and three live DVDs, as well as two albums with rock band Black Country Communion.
