International celebrates its 35th anniversary in true
rock 'n' roll style with a concert series that will go

Pete ... Promise Not to Smash THIS Guitar!

It's fitting that Pete Townshend and The Who are a
major focal point of Hard Rock's 35th anniversary, as
Townshend is part of Hard Rock lore. In the early
70s, the guitarist and frequent guest of Hard Rock
Cafe London saw that Eric Clapton had hung his guitar
to mark his favorite bar stool. A week later,
Townshend sent his guitar to Hard Rock's owner Isaac
Tigrett with a note saying, "Mine's as good as his,
Pete." The second guitar was placed on the wall next
to Clapton's and Hard Rock's iconic memorabilia
collection was born. The original Clapton and
Townshend guitars are currently hung where they belong
-- above the bar at Hard Rock Cafe London. And, the
priceless collection, which started with two guitars,
now claims more than 65,000 pieces of music history.
