As a culture we’re more interested in what musicians are doing on their reality show or wearing to the MVAs than their actual music or message. But a rare few rise above the noise to become legends. The Taschen Music Icons Series of visual biographies highlights some of the greatest musicians who ever lived, like John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan. Each book tells the story of their lives and careers through 150 portraits, album covers, rare concert photos and previously unpublished candid shots.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
