This area is set aside for Floyd fans to contribute any interesting Floyd item they may find in Hard Rock Cafe’s all over the world. If you have a pic or two you wish to show to other Floyd fans, please contact us at col@pinkfloydz.com

It’s worth noting that the Hard Rock people move their items around from location to location. It might well be that the items you see here are no longer in the places named.

Orlando Florida USA

This nice little collection was sent in by Antonio who visited the Orlando Hard Rock mid 2009. The pictures show a David Gilmour signed guitar, a copy of a vinyl Dark Side Of The Moon and a general collection of Floyd memorabilia.


Miami Florida USA
This picture of 'The Black Strat' was taken back in 1996, prior to David requesting the guitars return. (It was on loan to the Hard Rock for 10 years.) With thanks to David Arroyo for the picture. This has been verified as the genuine article.

Baltimore, Maryland USA
We reckon that the Hard Rock would close down if it wasn't for the patronage of DMFLOYD. This time he visted the Hard Rock in Baltimore, Maryland (Sep 07) and spotted the famous Oakland poster. He said the award below the poster is forThe Wall but it has been modified and the album cover has faded.

Philadelphia USA
DMFLOYD strikes again. Our roving Hard Rock/Pink Floyd major contributor snapped the ceiling above at the Philly Hard Rock Cafe in June 2007. Astute observers will no doubt spot the pig. DMFLOYD tells us that currently Washington DC, Louisville KY, and Las Vegas NV have ZERO Floyd items on display.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina USA

Our good friend DMFLOYD has been at it again. He seems to be touring around the USA and eating out at every Hard Rock cafe he can find! This time his journey took him to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where he spotted a cel from the wall and a Roger Waters autograph pic.

Madrid Spain

Hrc

The picture above was taken in one of the two Spanish Hard Rock Cafes. This one is in Madrid (the other one is in Barcelona, see below). They have original cartoon celluloids from The Wall (you can see the marching hammers), as well as gold discs (awarded for Another Brick In The Wall Part II.) and concert posters from the early era. This little Floydian corner is located in the basement and it’s pretty hard to find. Our thanks go to Gregor from Slovenia for sneaking into this room (it’s in a room not open to public) and taking this picture for A Fleeting Glimpse.


Cancun Mexico

Hard Rock Cafe in Cancun Mexico has this very interesting item on the left. The inscription reads David Gilmour. Pink Floyd. Milano 1984. (Davide davide_r@iname.com tells us that this award is called Telegatto) On the right is a Gold record for Wish You Were Here that was presented to Columbia Special Products (Both pics thanks to Bruce Mironov).
