The new Hard Rock memorabilia site features plenty of Elvis, along with John Lennon and other classic rock'n'roll artifacts.
There's the chance to see Elvis' military identification affidavit - apparently issued after The King lost his original military I.D. Scotty Moore's Gibson 400 guitar, Elvis' personal Derringer pistol and other items.
There are the original handwritten lyrics for John Lennon's 'Don't Let Me Down', Madonna's corset, John Entwistle's bass and much much more.
At the moment nine important Elvis items are featured, including the chance to see his Karate Gi and Jailhouse Rock jacket close-up.
Other exhibits include Lennon's handwritten lyrics for "Imagine," and the TV tuner knob Bo Diddley used for his first hand-built guitar.
Sean Dee, Hard Rock International's VP and chief marketing officer noted, "Hard Rock's memorabilia is extremely valuable and must be handled with extreme care, so we wanted to find a more practical way to bring the collection to a broader audience.
With Silverlight, we were able to build an application that allows us to make our collection accessible and highly interactive for millions of fans worldwide."
