Rick Nielsen's guitars -- up to and including that crazy-cool five-necked one -- are as much a part of Cheap Trick lore as their power-pop hits.
Foo Fighters and Rick Nielsen performed 'Something from Nothing' on the 'Late Show with David Letterman' last night (Oct. 17).
After bringing out Zac Brown, Heart and Tony Joe White to join them for the first three nights of their week-long 'Late Show with David Letterman' residency, the Foo Fighters gave themselves a tough act to follow on Thursday.
He's one of rock's most distinctive axemen, but even when he isn't slinging riffs and peeling off licks, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen is a bona fide guitar hero.
For nearly 40 years, Rick Nielsen has been the commander-in-chief of one of the greatest rock and roll bands in the world.
Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen isn't ready to be relegated to relic status just yet. Still, fans will be happy to know that the man, his legendary band -- and yes, all those guitars -- are the subject of a special exhibit at the Burpee Museum Of Natural History, located in the band's hometown of Rockford, Ill.
