Has anyone caught the piece about Bill Graham's rock collection on CBC Sunday or 60 Minutes?
Since he started promoting his rock concerts in dance halls in the 60's, he had been collecting everything from the posters and photos, to live recordings that for years no one knew existed. He had inspired artists to create psychedelic posters and always overprinted everything from back stage passes to tickets and kept everything preserved in mint condition.
Bill Graham's business and collection was purchased for 5 million dollars and the person who bought it estimates it's value to be over 50 million. The person who bought it wasn't even aware of the extent of the collection.
The new owner has since cataloged and photographed every piece and formed a website for fans to purchase some of this rare memorabilia. Much of the super rare stuff is being kept and not for sale.
It's called Wolfgang's Vault since Bill Graham's real name was Wolfgang.
For you music buffs, check out streaming rare concert recordings on their website being made public for the first time on Vault Radio and be sure and turn your volume up.
