Rick’s Picks: Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen shows off his award-winning exhibit in Rockford
On tonight’s WGN News, we’re taking you inside Rick’s Picks – the now award-winning museum exhibit at the Burpee Museum in Rockford, Illinois. The show featured thousands of letters, guitars, hand-written notes, photographs, picks, sweaters, shoes, speeding tickets, films, platinum records, concert posters, hats, and….well…..everything else Cheap Trick founding member, lead guitarist and songwriter Rick Nielsen has collected over the years.
He toured us around the exhibit just a few days before he won an Illinois tourism award for the display. We’ll post the video here after it airs. You can see Rick’s Picks for yourself here…
