Liberace’s piano gets new home in Massachusetts

ROCKLAND, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts music store that drew national attention in February when its roof collapsed under the weight of snow, sparking fears that a rhinestone-covered piano once owned by Liberace was damaged, has reopened.

The Piano Mill in Rockland reopened at a new location just a few doors down from its former storefront.

Owner Rob Norris tells The Enterprise of Brockton (http://bit.ly/1E3Czfq ) he is restocking his inventory of pianos and vintage guitars.

A section of roof over the old showroom collapsed on February 10 after the town received 29 inches of snow.

There was fear that the Liberace piano with 88,888 rhinestones and worth $500,000 was crushed, but while other pianos were damaged, the Liberace piano was spared.

Norris says the new store will be home to Liberace’s grand.
