"We had a contest on the Facebook page for a few weeks where we pitted two pieces from the collection against each other, and fans of the page voted on which one we should take," Nolan says. "We pitted handwritten Kurt Cobain lyrics against handwritten Eddie Vedder lyrics, and of course, the Cobain lyrics won, but the Eddie Vedder lyrics are written on a barf bag. How do you not take that, too?"
"Forty years doing this is pretty impressive," Nolan says. "With all the changes that Hard Rock has gone through over the years, and all the changes in pop culture and music, for us to take a rolling museum of some of our favorite pieces … allows us to celebrate the music and celebrate the culture."
