Noteworthy Now

The ordinarily hushed confines of a major art gallery isn't the place you'd expect to find a display of many of the loudest instruments in the history of music, but that's exactly what Classic Rock fans will be streaming into the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York to see in the coming weeks. Play It Loud!, an exhibt that includes 130+ instruments, many of the iconic, opened yesterday.

Visitors will be treated to axes, drums and other instruments owned by Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Chuck Berry,Bob Dylan, James Hetfield, Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Van Halen, Nancy Wilson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and dozens more.

Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll runs through October 1 at the Met.
