Join Julien’s in New York City at the Hard Rock Cafe on May 19, 2018 for an unprecedented MUSIC ICONS 2018 event.

The headliner of this blockbuster auction will be one of the most historically important guitars in rock history, a 1965 Fender Telecaster electric guitar, played by two of the most influential singer-songwriters of all time: pop culture icon Bob Dylan and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame legendary songwriter and guitarist, Robbie Robertson. The legendary instrument first came onto the music scene making history as the guitar played by acoustic folk icon Bob Dylan on his first tour "going electric" with the Hawks in 1966; his backing band would become famously renamed and revered as The Band. Played by Robbie Robertson on classic compositions such as "Up on Cripple Creek", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" and by Dylan on the revolutionary 1966 Blonde on Blonde, Robertson said "This guitar has been on the front lines of so many phenomenal events, I gaze at it with amazement." The guitar was also played extensively by other music legends including Eric Clapton, George Harrison and Levon Helm, defining the sound of some of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time.

The MUSIC ICONS event will also feature rare and iconic items and memorabilia representing all genres of music from The Beatles to Britney Spears.
