Original Neon Marquee "The Whisky" A Go Go
Item Details
Description
This world famous marquee stood atop the legendary Whisky A Go Go club during the 80's and 90's when it was known as "The Whisky". Performing on its infamous stage is one of the true rites of passage in the world of rock ‘n’ roll and it is credited with having launched the careers of countless bands including The Doors, Frank Zappa, Buffalo Springfield, Van Halen, Motley Crue, and Guns N' Roses. It has been recognized as one of the most influential and important musical venues in the world. This was sold in New York City in 2012 and now makes its way back to the auction block. It was originally owned by Mario Maglieri (owner of the Whisky) and was previously owned by Erik Quisling (author). The marquee measures 13 Feet by 3.5 Feet in height by 10" in depth and is pink Neon.
