Recommended Posts

Opening today at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, is a special exhibit: "Stay Tuned: Rock on TV."

Featured in the exhibit is something every Raspberries fan will be excited to see.

The plaque reads:

Jim Bonfanti of the Raspberries
Bass Drum

Ludwig
Gift of Jim Bonfanti and Family
Jim Bonfanti used this drum during the Raspberries' December 21, 1973 appearance on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert.

Congrats, Jim! What an honor!

I forget who made all of those little raspberry pins at the first reunion show, but I do remember Jim stuck one on his bass drum. And it’s still there!

Given the acts that the Rock HOF has brought in, and given the way Raspberries' impact has become more and more obvious as "architects of power pop," it's criminal that they're on the outside looking in. The display is great, but they merit a full induction!

Your best bet at this place and time would probably be ebay. The band autographed a lot of items during the reunion shows, and 15 years later they still show up on ebay from time to time.
