House of Petals will also host concerts, both virtual and physical.
Any true rock and roll fan in Hollywood knows the House of Petals. This is where the late rock and roll legend Eddie Van Halen spent many of his nights sharing his creativity and passion. House of Petals, owned by Joey House, was an everyday flower shop. But once night fell, the music reigned supreme.
A creative, loving and humorous artist, Eddie was loved by many who came to see him perform. Eddie organized many spontaneous jam sessions with other musicians at House of Petals. Some of the most iconic works performed in the House of Petals include Eddie Michael Jackson’s BAD contribution.
Artists from other walks of life also came to the venue to enjoy the music and mingle with their fans without the cameras following them. The likes of Halle Berry, Farrah Fawcett, Sean Penn and Tone Loc were common faces. And then, when everyone was gone, Joey and Eddie would stay up late making more music and laughing and talking. It was during these times that the House of Petals guitar collection was born.
“It’s the core culture and the real soul of the project,” says Joey. “I want to bring back some of that feeling of love and collaboration, that raw creative energy that really fuels the world of art and music. I want to give that to people in this amazing new way”
With Eddie gone, Joey found a way to bring back the vibe and creativity that marked this season. On March 25, 2022, the journey will begin with the launch of the House of Petals NFT project. The project will begin with a collection of guitars and flowers. The two custom-made physical guitars Eddie gave Joey will only be part of a larger collection.
“I want to commemorate the history of Rock ‘N Roll across the metaverse,” said Carrie Lyn of The Creative House, which focuses on bringing long-term value to NFT holders. “We can be immersed in history rather than reading a book or watching a documentary. Artificial intelligence NFTs are coming. All the while, we nurture future generations who are still finding their sound.
The developers of the project are sure that the NFTs will sell out quickly. So they don’t stop there. Once the NFTs run out, a portion of the funds raised will be used to build the House of Petals in the metaverse. The members of the project will then obtain exclusive access to this place. They will also appreciate its events and meeting places with artists, gamers and influencers. The developers also promise more surprises before and after this first mint NFT release.
The House of Petals NFT project will extend its benefits outside of the metaverse. According to Future Media’s Duquan Brown, project manager of HOP, the project will stick to its main goal, which is to commemorate the history of rock and roll. While books are good for sharing the story, experiencing something on your own is better, and that’s what they want. When future generations want a taste of the 90s, all they have to do is get a House of Petals NFT. In many ways, the experience will be like taking a ride without leaving home.helps Brown.
House of Petals will also host concerts, both virtual and physical. These concerts will offer artists from different backgrounds the opportunity to bond and connect. Eddie cared deeply about emerging artists, and that’s something the project cares about as well. These artists will play special concerts where they will have the stage to themselves.
A portion of the money raised through the project will be donated to initiatives that Eddie cared about. These include City of Hope for cancer treatment and research, Eric Clapton Crossroads Rehabilitation Center and providing guitar and piano lessons to underprivileged music students. A national high school tour will be organized in his honor.
