The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Paradise, Nevada, is an entertainment resort owned and operated by Morgans Hotel Group and equity partner DLJ Merchant Banking Partners. The property is located on 16.7 acres (68,000 m2) on the corner of Harmon and Paradise Road, inside the Paradise Corridor. The features of the property include the hotel tower, a 30,000-square-foot (2,800 m2) casino, Tahitian-style beach and swimming pool, a nightclub, five restaurants, three cocktail lounges, several retail stores, a spa, a poker room, and "The Joint", a music venue. Hard Rock earns only about 30% of its revenue from gaming, probably the lowest percentage of any major resort in the Las Vegas strip region.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

Good evening Eric,
now it is for me more interesting. In Cologne, there is also a Hard Rock Cafe. The guitar in front is much smaller. Their discovery is fantastic and excellent in reproduction. Have a nice Sunday evening. Dear greetings Christel
