Tom to Donate Memorabilia to Hard Rock’s World-Famous Collection
Legendary Bassist to Appear at Hard Rock Café Boston for Memorabilia Donation
One of the original “Bad Boys of Boston” is heading home! On Thursday, January 31st, Boston’s own Tom Hamilton, bassist of the legendary rock group Aerosmith, will make a special appearance at Hard Rock Café Boston to donate his 2003 Harley Davidson Fatboy 100th Anniversary bike, given to him by Harley Davidson after the band performed for the motorcycle company’s 100th anniversary party. During the event, sponsored in part by local radio station WZLX-FM, Hamilton will also donate a bass guitar and a stage outfit from Aerosmith’s recent tour to Hard Rock’s world-famous collection. To commemorate the event, Hard Rock will present a check for $30,000 to Massachusetts General Hospital YouthCare, a therapeutic-based program that focuses on helping children develop social skills and other behavioral strategies within a group setting.
“My wife Terry and I have been supporters of YouthCare for a while now,” said Tom Hamilton. “We’ve wanted to use the bike to raise funds for the program, and we’re excited and grateful that Hard is cutting such a fat check!”
