Hard Rock Hotel is swinging big time in Malaysia! Ella and Zainal Abidin, Malaysian rock legends and icons, became the first Malaysians to be featured in the Hard Rock Memorabilia Collection when they donated memorabilia to the brand new Hard Rock Hotel Penang. Ella donated jeans she recently wore on tour, as well as a guitar. Zainal Abidin donated drumsticks and a drum. This event marks the beginning of the hotel’s effort in supporting the local music scene. “We are thrilled that our local celebrities, such as Ella and Zainal Abidin, are sharing their precious collections with Hard Rock Hotel Penang. As Hard Rock Hotel Penang opens its door this September, we will be going to great lengths to support the Malaysian music industry and we foresee more joint efforts with artists and record labels in the future,” said John Primmer, General Manager of Hard Rock Hotel Penang.
