This velvet suit, custom made by Karen Ulibarri for her boyfriend Tommy Bolin, is one of the holy grail objects of rockdom. It so perfectly represents Tommy's mystique and personality, and it was an honor to even be in its presence. I mounted it on a dark blue/purple velvet and it looks spectacular in the glass case. Thanks to M. Sean Vennett for this outstanding photograph!
The shirt was remounted in a new case. Together they were packed in a crate to be shipped to NAMM along with more boxes of photos and gold records. Dean Guitars has a very elaborate display and it will be exciting to see how they set of this up. I'll arrive in Anaheim Wednesday with Johnnie.
