Mr. Musichead Gallery on Sunset Boulevard played host to the West Coast book launch event for 108 Rock Stars Guitars, by famed photographer Lisa S. Johnson. 108 Rock Star Guitars is a project 17 years in the making and is the ultimate coffee table book, for not only musicians and music fans, but for anyone who can appreciate the beauty of the instrument. The book features images of some of rock’s most iconic axes, including Keith Richards’ 1952 Gibson ES 350, Jimmy Page’s Gibson EDS 1275 – SG Double-Neck, Zakk Wylde’s “The Grail” 1981 Gibson Les Paul, Slash’s 1987 Gibson Les Paul and Ace Frehley’s modified Gibson Les Paul – “Light Guitar to name but a few. If you’ve ever wanted to get up close and personal with these legendary guitars, this book makes it possible.
Even by Hollywood’s tough standards, the event was certainly a success. In attendance for the evening’s festivities was Robert Trujillo (and his wife Chloe) of Metallica, Lanny Cordola (House of Lords), rock photographer heavyweights, Neil Zlozower and Glen Wexler, publishing magnates Shawn Perry (Vintage Rock), Lonn Friend (Rip Magazine) and of course yours truly. And aside from the gorgeous Amazonian hostesses and bartenders, I must say the highlight for this former 70’s teenager was the attendance of Charlies’ Angel, Tanya Roberts.
108 Rock Stars Guitars may not be the cheapest book you’ll ever buy, but like all true “art” it is a timeless publication that will bring years of joy.
