While in Basel for Fasnacht, we spent a lot of time wandering the streets and alleys taking in the atmosphere. At one point, wanting a coffee, we looked around for the nearest suitable place, and found this place.

Interesting features include not only the odd gold disc around (well, we're all used to those, aren't we?), but slightly more outré accompaniments. Such as one of Madonna's corsets.

We were amused that not only did they have the usual signed guitars, but they'd worked out what to do with drums, hanging them from the ceiling.

More impressively, upstairs featured large paintings by and of rockers, including one large one by Ronnie Wood.

And signatures on most of the items, to one 'Andy', the owner, whose personal collection all this memorabilia was.

It's nice to see it done personally, rather than the generic Rock Café corporate take.
