Three Lives of Hank Aberle

Three Lives of Hank Aberle

The title is misleading. Hank Aberle has actually lived many lives but for this piece we'll just get a glimpse into three - his life as the guitar player for The Glitterhouse (You might recognize them from the soundtrack of Barbarella), his life as a guitar maker, and his life as an obsessed collector of over 24,000 music and audio recordings. 

The following three videos are from a visit to Hank's old apartment in Manhattan. He has since moved out of the city, but his collection still grows and includes music recordings in formats you and I didn't even know existed.
