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.

The above pictures were taken at the Rome Hard Rock and sent in by Ryan Diesem. That’s Ryan on the right. Be careful with that axe Ryan, it might fall on your head! (After publication it was established that David never owned this guitar)
Universal Studios- Los Angles California USA
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.
Hard Rock Cafe in Cancun Mexico has this very interesting item on the left. The inscription reads David Gilmour. Pink Floyd. Milano 1984.
