Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has one of the most impressive collections of Rock n Roll memorabilia. The man with the distinct honor of taking care of and adding to that collection is Mr. Chris McKinney.

Chris joins me on the podcast today to talk about some of the legendary rock guitars that make their home in the office of Jim Irsay. There is Jerry Garcia’s one of a kind “Tiger” which is displayed in a glass case behind the Colt’s owners desk. Quite a few Beatles guitars are in the collection, including George Harrison’s 1964 Gibson SG, and a 1963 Gretsch Chet Atkins that belonged to John Lennon. And that’s not all.

The Bob Dylan Goes Electric Guitar is also featured. Plus my favorite, Ringo Starr’s Ludwig 3 piece Oyster Pearl Drum Kit with the original Drumhead from the Ed Sullivan Show!

Chris McKinney has some amazing stories to tell about all of these instruments and more plus the musicians who played them! So join me on this amazing adventure into Rock n Roll history! Thank you Jim Irsay for allowing us to share your treasures!
