Plenty to say about the worldwide chain, founded in London although everyone on VT thinks it is American! Check the website, a taste of some of the the memorabilia here:

1) Elton John - Blue feather outfit.

2) Terence Trent D'Arby - Pearl snare drum signed, "While it is true?now beat it" by Terence Trent D'Arby, who got his music career going while in the U.S. Army.

3) Roy Orbison - In 1964 Roy Orbison released what was to be the most successful hit single of his career, "Oh Pretty Woman." Hand-written lyrics to the song, co-written with Bill Dees.

4) Madonna - Black satin jacket worn by Madonna during the "Virgin" tour in April, 1985.

5) White Lion - Studded denim jacket worn by lead vocalist Mike Tramp of the 80's rock band
