They just posted a slideshow of Tokyo's Prog rock museum at Prog Ears forum.
 
 
What  main  thing would you include in your own personal museum - besides Anderson's codpiece and Wakiepoo's gold cape?
 
Id have Bo Hansson's hammond - only I think  the Beardfish guy gots it.
              Conny Plank's studio
              Pinder's mellotron
              Wakie's hammond (wot he didn't use all that much)
 
 
....
Remember in the 60s the  monsters of filmland foot-high model kits: Hunchback,Mummy,Dracula,Frankenstein,Hyde,the Witch,Creature from Black Lagoon, cant remember if there were more.
 
Should be a series for prog gods. I know there is a Wakie one with mellotron & hammond.

All the instruments Gentle Giant would play at a single gig and Peter Gabriel's various costumes.  Ian Anderson in a codpiece would make a great model!

I'd start my prog rock museum with these pieces...

Keith Emerson's Moog Modular synthesizer
Robert Fripp's "Fretless Wonder" late 50's Les Paul Custom
Peter Gabriel's Slipperman costume (with inflatable balls)
Ringo's "Love the 4 Beatles" bass drum head
Bill Bruford's high pitched Yes/King Crimson snare drum
The sitar George played on "Norwegian Wood"
The "3 headed hydra" Roger Dean designed stage scenery from the '75 and '76 Yes tour
Peter Nichols heroin addict mask worn at the end of "The Enemy Smacks"
The mellotron Paul played the "Strawberry Fields Forever" flute intro on
The final brick to be placed at the 1st performance of "The Wall"
The Hammond M-102 organ Matthew Fisher recorded "A Whiter Shade of Pale" on
Geddy and Alex's mid 70's doublenecks
An Ian Anderson flute
The dress Frank Zappa wore for the cover of "We're Only in it for the Money"
and finally...
A bill from Mikael Akerfeldt's throat doctor LOL

Ohhh c'mon ... that's the perfect piece for the Hollywood Wax Museum!

Ohhh c'mon ... you really want the doctor bills for the girls in the GTO's! Or David Bowie's!
 
(Hew said on the "Behind the Music" that the reason for his longetivity was ... good doctors!)
 
(I would settle for a juicy tell all on the house that had Syd, Robert, Kevin, Daevid, Burroughs, Ginsburg, and a whole lot of actors and actresses coming and going!)

LOLClap

I'd want several Rush pieces in mine: the kimonos they wore in the 70's would be cool, as well as Hugh Syme's Mellotron used to record "Tears."  A pair of Geddy's sunglasses, the doubleneck Rickenbacker he used to play in the 70's; at least one Neil Peart drum set, and one of the big inflatable rabbits they had on the Presto tour LOL.

In blood, he's writing the lyrics of a brand new tune.

Meh, it's already starting to look like a Hard Rock Café franchise in some backwater city that no one's ever heard of.
 
Don't recall ever seeing a Wakeman "action figure" doll, but there was a Emerson one:
Keith Emerson Rock Iconz of ELP Statue
to go with this:
 
Rush Neil Peart Rock Iconz Statue
...just need an "L" to play bass,

Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond's zebra-striped suit, but since he burned it when he quit the band I'll settle for his matching bass guitar, unless he burned that as well, then I got nothing.

OK, Ian's codpiece will do.

I'm trying to remember what Jeffrey did with his green boots. Those might still be out there somewhere.
We need the rabbit suit with John Evan's urine still inside the head.

"There was once a player named Fripp
Who's musical skills were a trip
He became Crimson King
Though he never could sing
Take a picture of him and he'd flip!"
 
We need more Nursery Rhymes!
 
You think we should start a thread on that? ... that's pretty damn good and worth of "The Pearl" already!

I started the "Prog Rock Limericks" thread in the "Prog Music Lounge" about a week ago and an admin moved it to "Topics not related to music->Just for Fun".  There are about 30 prog limericks alive and breathing who would love some company Thumbs Up

How about the krumhorns Gryphon used ??
Perhaps the harmonium Peter Hammill used occasionally (but at a gig years ago Peter told me Chris Judge Smith has it so there goes that idea)
The fuzz box Dave Stewart used to get his magnificent sound with.

Now that is rare.
