Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- For the first time ever, someone other than a musician has been honored with a memorabilia case at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

A new display honoring Chef Kerry Simon was unveiled on Thursday night.

The display includes a photograph and Simon and longtime friend comedian Bill Murray. The pair is wearing matching Elvis suits.

It also features a purple bust of Simon, a black chef's coat, an autographed guitar, culinary knives and more.

Simon is currently battling an agressive form of Parkinson's Disease, but it hasn't slowed him down. He is the chef behind several popular restaurants, including his newest venture Carson Kitchen in downtown Las Vegas.
