The Hard Rock make hard work

In the real world, if you had a desire to see Ronnie Wood's shin pads or Rod Stewart's hatbox, you have to go to a Hard Rock Cafe, and go through the pain of eating one of their overpriced burgers.

They've now launched an online "museum", but that, too, has a price: You have to install Microsoft's Silverlight to be able to see Elton John's crockpot or Jim Morrison's fatal washcloth. I'm not sure that it's worth it.
