ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- It's an anniversary that doesn't go quite as far back, but it's a day Cheap Trick fans don't forget.
April 1 is Cheap Trick day in Illinois. It's been that way since 2007. And so Burpee Museum took advantage of the holiday by inviting guitarist Rick Nielsen out at his popular exhibit Rick's Picks. And when asked about the exhibit's success Nielsen kept the fools day approach in our interview.
"I thought they'd close it down the first day, but this has been here about eight months it's been pretty amazing,we've had people from all around the world here and some crazy people and some sane people," Nielsen said.
Regardless of the type of people enough have shown up. The Rick's Picks exhibit was extended a few days and is now open until April 14.
