The ROCK-MUSEUM in Siegen, Germany, started an exhibition on September 8 to October 1, 2010.
The motto is FLY ME TO THE MOON and shows hundreds of things about Rock-Music and Space such as posters, photographs, records, record-sleeves etc. from all parts of the world.
This, of course, meant that also The Spotnicks will have a part in this exhibition.
My friend Erich Steuber from Hilchenbach had heard about this exhibition and made contact to the people who are running this museum.
I borrowed them a number of posters, photographs, record-sleeves, buttons and also an old acoustic guitar which was signed by the Spotnicks.
This led to an invitation for the opening night and I was there with my friend (and drummer in my own band) Klaus.
It started with the official talks by the sponsors, the owner of the museum and also a journalist from a German rock magazine.
From the Spotnicks they had included some of my posters and a glass box with records, buttons, CDs and a photo.
I had brought with me the signed guitar which was shown and it will be put in a box in these days.
The guitar was also shown in a newspaper article about the opening night.
And, of course, there was a fantastic dinner with excellent wines.
The food was named after well-known song names and band-names such as
STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER for a strawberry-dessert
WHISKY IN THE JAR for another dessert creme which included whisky
HIGHWAY TO HELL for a hot meat salad spiced up with chilis.
The exhibition is really fantastic.
