I was at the O2 yesterday and I had some time to kill so I went upstairs to the BMI music exhibition, at first I thought it was just a collection of rock & roll photographs however if you go into the main exhibition there is a collection of rock memoribilia for all decades
in the Queen section there is Rogers original two tone bass drum, (the one used for Bo Rap and later seen as the small kit stage right during 39 etc. this particularly got me excited as I always wanted to get a close up view of the drum because it's pretty rare.
Also was a Brian May guild guitar and Freddies white jacket and trousers from the 86' tour, along with John's hand written I want to break free lyrics.

Plenty of other interesting rock & roll stuff about too but worth poping in to see if you are in the neighbourhood

Sadly not, no photography allowed and there were security guards everywhere making sure, I tried a couple of times to et the phone out but every time one would stand next to me, I suspect they get a lot of it
