Here are some of the unique items not usually available in Canada you could go home with on December 31st:
– Electric guitar signed on July 17, 1977 in Seattle by all original members of Led Zeppelin – guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bassist and keyboardist John Paul Jones and drummer John Bonham. This was the eleventh and final concert tour of North America for them. John Bonham died on September 25, 1980 – he was just 32 years old. Two months later, the remaining members disbanded the biggest band of the ’70s on December 4, 1980. Until his tragic death, Bonham was worldwide famous for his drum solos which could take about 30 minutes. In 2010 Rolling Stone named John Bonham “the best drummer of all time”.
– Genuine autographed electric guitar by the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson! On June 25, 2009, Jackson died while in his bed at his rented mansion at 100 North Carolwood Drive in the Holmby Hills district of Los Angeles. He won 13 Grammy Awards, 26 American Music Awards (including the “Best Artist of the Century” and “Best Artist of the 1980s”). He had 13 number one singles in the US in his solo career alone – more than any other male artist and estimated sales of over 400 million records worldwide which makes him one of the best selling artists of all time. The value of this guitar will only increase over time as the true loss of the King of Pop is realized.
– Boxing Glove autographed by Sylvester Stallone. Rocky Balboa quickly became a household name after Stallone’s 1976 hit, Rocky. The film grossed $225 million worldwide and was awarded Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Film Editing at the 1976 Academy Awards. Stallone wrote and starred in the movie himself, and received honors from the Writers Guild of America in 2006 as the 78th best screenplay of all-time. Since the 1976 debut of Rocky there have been five sequels, all of which featured Stallone. The Rocky series has grossed over $1.25 billion worldwide since the first movie debuted.
Very rare item - boxing glove signed by Mike Tyson with extra inscription – “KID DYNAMITE".
Mike Tyson held the undisputed heavyweight championship and holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBA, WBC, and IBF heavyweight titles at 20 years, 4 months, and 22 days old. Tyson won his first 19 professional fights by knockout, 12 of them in the first round. He won the WBC title in 1986 after stopping Trevor Berbick in two rounds. In 1987, Tyson added the WBA and IBF titles after defeating James Smith and Tony Tucker. This made him the first heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC, and IBF titles, and the only heavyweight to successively unify them.
In 1988, Tyson became the lineal champion when he knocked out Michael Spinks in 91 seconds of the first round. Tyson successfully defended the world heavyweight championship nine times, including victories over Larry Holmes and Frank Bruno. He won the WBC and WBA titles in 1996, after defeating Frank Bruno and Bruce Seldon by knockout. With his defeat of Bruno, Tyson joined Floyd Patterson, Muhammad Ali, Tim Witherspoon, Evander Holyfield, and George Foreman, as the only men in boxing history to have regained a heavyweight championship after having lost it. Nicknamed "Iron" and "Kid Dynamite" in his early career and later known as "The Baddest Man on the Planet" Tyson is considered one of the best heavyweights of all time. He is rank No. 1 in the ESPN.com list of "The hardest hitters in heavyweight history". Sky Sports rated him as "the scariest boxer ever" and described him as "perhaps the most ferocious fighter to step into a professional ring. He has been inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame and the World Boxing Hall of Fame.
Poster from 1970 world tour signed by Godfather of Soul and founding father of Funk music – James Brown.
James Brown (May 3, 1933 – December 25, 2006) was an American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer and bandleader. The founding father of funk music and a major figure of 20th century popular music and dance, he is often referred to as the Godfather of Soul. In a career that spanned six decades, he influenced the development of several music genres.
Brown began his career as a gospel singer in Toccoa, Georgia. First coming to national public attention in the late 1950s as a member of the singing group The Famous Flames with the hit ballads "Please, Please, Please" and "Try Me", Brown built a reputation as a tireless live performer with the Famous Flames and his backing band, sometimes known as the James Brown Band or the James Brown Orchestra. His success peaked in the 1960s with the live album Live at the Apollo and hit singles such as "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag", "I Got You (I Feel Good)" and "It's a Man's Man's Man's World". During the late 1960s he moved from a continuum of blues and gospel-based forms and styles to a profoundly "Africanized" approach to music-making that influenced the development of funk music. By the early 1970s, Brown had fully established the funk sound after the formation of the J.B.s with records such as "Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine" and "The Payback". He also became noted for songs of social commentary, including the 1968 hit "Say It Loud – I'm Black and I'm Proud". Brown continued to perform and record until his death from congestive heart failure in 2006.
Brown recorded 16 singles that reached number one on the Billboard R&B charts.
He also holds the record for the most singles listed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart which did not reach number one.Brown has received honors from many institutions, including inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame.
James Brown is ranked as number one in The Top 500 Artists on Billboard R&B charts.. He is ranked seventh on the music magazine Rolling Stone's list of its 100 greatest artists of all time. Rolling Stone has also cited Brown as the most sampled artist of all time.
