Students, we have explored many cities, countries and memories together these last 3 years!! School started out wth 350 students each week and has grown to 25,000 to 80,000 a week...God, knows where they all sit!! Today, let's take a peak in the Hard Rock's archive vault and see what's hidden!

A few years back, Max and I were invited to go check out the Hard Rock Cafe's archives. If I recall correctly, he was doing an interview smack dab in the middle of the vault. As a result we were invited to peak around at some of their most valuable possessions!

There are so many Hard Rocks around the world and each is packed with memorabilia from every artist you can think of! In Madrid, one of Max's smashed guitars adorns the wall, and another white BC Rich is tucked away somewhere on a display or warehouse we have yet to discover!

Max really loved the vintage guitars and the stories they told, stories of wear and tear, long nights on the road, and screaming fans! Stevie Ray Vaughn, BB King, Little Richard, The King was all there to soak up! Kurt Cobain's guitar and his personal artifacts were also favorites......forever embedded in music history. Some day, some young rocker will be holding Max's ax and dreaming of where it was, what it saw and how it wailed!!

Class dismissed......
