BILOXI, Miss. (AP) -- Among rock 'n' roll artifacts on display in Biloxi, Miss., will be the Army uniform Elvis Presley wore. 

It was fished out of the Mississippi Sound after Hurricane Katrina wrecked much of the Gulf Coast. 

B.B. King's original guitar "Lucille" will also be on display when the Hard Rock Biloxi casino opens July 7. So will the guitars of Johnny Cash and KISS. 

Dozens of items were strewn along the Mississippi coast after Katrina struck in August 2005. 

Some of the artifacts have been restored to pristine condition. Others will become part of a Katrina memorial collage. 

The Hard Rock was destroyed by Katrina two days before the casino was scheduled to open.
