Details Emerge About Cheap Trick Guitarist, Rick Nielsen's Exhibit at the Burpee Museum in His Hometown of Rockford, Illinois

Rockford, Illinois (PRWEB) May 31, 2012

Cheap Trick?s Rick Nielsen and the Board of the Burpee Museum of Natural History have unveiled plans for a state-of-the-art exhibit that tells the story of Nielsen's passions for guitars, music and Rock & Roll.

The team responsible for creating and populating the exhibit has been astounded by the depth of material available: Nielsen?s first grade report card. Guitars. Traffic tickets. More guitars. Handwritten lyrics. Still more guitars. Road logs from the early days - the really early days when Nielsen was in the Grim Reapers, The Fuse and Sick Man of Europe. Even more guitars. Scratchy demo tapes showcasing world-famous songs in the process of being recorded.

Nielsen recently spent two days with the Rick?s Picks creative team and famed rock writer Ira Robbins, the Founder and Editor of 70s-era, Trouser Press, in lengthy interview sessions. Robbins and Nielsen explored, among other things, Nielsen?s love of Japanese culture and Cheap Trick?s amazing success at Tokyo?s Budokan in the spring of 1978, in a fascinating and far-reaching conversation.

Nielsen regaled Robbins with stories of the band?s shock (and delight) at literally being chased down the street by happy Japanese fans. The interviews were dual-purpose: Robbins has been charged with the responsibility of writing content for a collectible Rick?s Picks exhibit book, which is in production. The interviews were also videotaped for movie content that will add texture and storytelling detail to the exhibit.

In addition, Rick's Picks just launched the exhibit's social media push with pages on Facebook and Twitter. For more information, follow Rick's Picks on Facebook. Or find emerging news on Twitter.

The exhibit opens for preview tours for sponsors, special guests and the media on August 10th, 2012, and to the general public on Saturday, August 11th, 2012 at Burpee Museum of Natural History, 737 North Main Street Rockford, IL 61103.

The exhibit will be open for tours through April 10, 2013. Admission is $ 18 for the Rick's Pick's exhibit and the entire museum. Local residents pay $ 15 (Winnebago and Boone Counties). Burpee Museum
