Seven Decades: The Story of Three Guitars that Changed the World
19 Dec 2018
Seven Decades is a unique rock and roll experience – weaving together live music, documentary, and rare vintage guitars to tell the epic story of how a simple musical invention had a revolutionary impact on the world.
The show, which is staged at the museum on 12th & 13th January 2019, will showcase some of the rarest guitars, playing homage to the three that have been the backbone of rock music - the Fender Telecaster, Gibson Les Paul, and Fender Stratocaster - and the influence they have had on modern music and culture.
The two daily 90-minute shows will journey from the ’50s to the present day. With musicians recreating some legendary guitar - based music along the way – from James Burton and Jimi Hendrix to the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Rage Against the Machine, with video projections and documentary footage backing up a live band.
