RR Auction: Marvels of Modern Music

Auction Details

This December, we’re excited to offer items from the superstars of music. From iconic
performers like Elvis and Prince; influential acts like The Beatles and David Bowie; pop superstars like Michael Jackson and Madonna; to those musicians we’ve lost this year or decades ago…Our Marvels of Modern Music auction has all the greats from the 1950s to today, in all genres: rock ‘n’ roll, country, blues, jazz, punk.

We’re proud to curate two important featured collections. The Brad Delp Collection celebrates the life and career of Boston frontman Brad Delp. His soaring voice helped the band take off much like their trademark spaceship logo. We’re honored Brad’s family chose RR Auction to curate this first-ever offering of his memorabilia.

Also, we have the Monte A. Melnick Collection relating to punk pioneers The Ramones. Recently featured at a special GRAMMY Museum exhibit, these items were obtained during Melnick’s time on the road with the groundbreaking musicians.
