Rick Nielsen’s Speech Was Short, and To the Point Outside the Illinois Rock and Roll Museum!

Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick is quite the character! After several speeches outside the Illinois Rock and Roll Museum on Friday afternoon, Rick was finally introduced to say a few words before flipping the ceremonial* switch that turns on the lights to illuminate the world record setting guitar sculpture.

Someone forgot to tell him though, that there were a few more people waiting to say some words! Check out the video!

Yep…line of the night: “My nuts are cold.”

I do encourage you to flip through the live video of the ceremony and get some backstory to the museum and the guitar. It’s all very cool!

*So I know the switch was ceremonial because I tried to UN-flip the switch later on!
