Harrods Goes Rock ‘n Roll

Well, well, well. Harrods is going all rock ‘n roll. Here I was thinking it was just a big, overpriced department store selling designer wear to tourists and Hollywood celebrities. Now it seems they’re keen to change their image and have launched a themed month of events devoted to the electric guitar. It’s called ‘Born to Rock’ as opposed to ‘Born to Spend’ or ‘Born to Live in the Food Hall’ which is what I’d like to do. They’ll be lots of glittery electric guitars ‘customised’ by fashion designers, a history of the electric guitar and lots of other guitary type stuff. Personally, I’m looking forward to seeing all those rockers with their old, black drainpipes and their worn in Doc Martens and their bad haircuts swamping the store.

    Apparently, as part of this they are also trying to break the world record for world’s largest jam session. On 18th February, they want people to bring their guitars to simultaneously play Deep Purple’s ‘Smoke On The Water’. Very cutting-edge, indeed.
