KING DIAMOND bassist Hal Patino has donated his trademark skeleton pants, skeleton shirt, top hat and cream Warwick bass to the Danish Rock Museum, which will open in 2014 in the newly developed creative urban area, Musicon, situated next to the Roskilde Festival site in Roskilde.
Patino used the cream Warwick bass to record everything he has done since 2000, including the upcoming album from his son, 20-year-old Danish rock singer Maryann Cotton (born Jackie Patino).
Hal‘s clothes and bass will be displayed in glass cases where visitors will be able to view the items and listen to an audio track on headphones highlighting the musician’s 35-year career.
When the Danish Rock Museum opens, you will be able to see, hear and feel the history of Danish popular music — told in an international perspective.
In the Studio you can record your own version of your favorite hit. On Stage you will be able to perform in front of a cheering virtual audience from Roskilde’s Orange Stage. And in the “Roots Of Rock Music,” you are invited to dive into the Museum’s collection and explore the history of rock music.
