The permanent music exhibition, which opens to the public next Monday (March 9) contains a range of exclusive personal artefacts from some of British rock’s most famous names.
Items at the exhibition include Noel Gallagher‘s Union Jack Epiphone guitar, David Bowie‘s handwritten lyrics to ‘Five Years’ and Mick Jagger‘s ’70s white jumpsuit.
The View (minus drummer Steven Morrison) played a short acoustic set in the exhibition’s Gibson Interactive Studio, before answering questions at an impromptu press conference.
Speaking during the session, bassist Keiren Webster offered fans some advice on how to become a rockstar.
“Keep away from the beer,” the bassist joked. He then pointed at bandmate Kyle Falconer and said “Make sure you keep your lead singer away from the beer too!”
