This is the guitar Jimi Hendrix used to play The Star Spangled Banner * at Woodstock in 1969
*If you aren't a fan of Hendrix you might not enjoy the video but you do get to see him play this guitar.
There are 2 floors of displays here about music and Sci Fi. They have rooms with instruments you can jam with to your hearts content. There is a Nirvana display that I didn't bother with. Dale isn't a fan either but he did go look and says it is very well done. There is a lot about music history in there. I didn't get to see everything but I did take in the display for Battlestar Galactica and Avatar. They were worth seeing I thought. The Avatar had more things to look at and seemed to offer more detail in the displays. Battlestar Galactica had 3 full size space ships and other props.
We went and wandered a bit around the Space Needle. There were huge crowds here and some music festival going on that was closed off. Dale and I were here with our family at the Seattle worlds fair. I'd say "Gosh, aside from the Space Needle it sure looks a lot different" but I was just a little kid so I wouldn't remember. I know we didn't go up to the top then because the lines were huge. They were huge this day as well so we still didn't go up. Here are a couple of photos I took. One I was using the posterization (b/w) I used on the photo of Dar a while back.
Then one normal in case you aren't into the fancy pants effects.
Stay tuned for part three
