Poster exhibition: "Rock legends still alive": Let the good times roll!
Spanning all scenes, famous artiste Ole Ohlendorff has been in business for more than 30 years. His trademark: inimitable portraits of musicians. Be it Slash and Axl Rose, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Gibbons and many more. Ohlendorff's pictures are highly prized by both musicians and fans. A highlight at Musikmesse Plaza '20: the unveiling of his latest portrait of Brian Setzer, who heads up Stray Cats. With a bit of luck Brian Setzer will be there live as a star guest.
