Rick's Picks exhibit to be featured on "American Pickers"


A Rockford exhibit will make its small screen debut on a March episode of HISTORY's "American Pickers".

Rick's Picks: A Lifelong Affair with Guitars & Music will be featured on the hit television show on March 11. The exhibit is located at the Burpee Museum of Natural History and features guitars, memorabilia, and more that has been collected by Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen.

"American Pickers" is hosted by Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz. The team travels around the country searching for hidden gems in locations like basements, garages, and barns.

"Seeing Rick's exhibit was truly mind-boggling, Fritz said. "For me, as a nearly lifelong Cheap Trick fan, I was in heaven. And, then, to dig even deeper with Rick himself—well, we can't wait for the nation to see what we picked out of Rick's storage lockers. Mike and I drove away from Rockford very, very happy."
