Out of the Jurisdiction: Roll and Roll Hall of Fame

I had some more free time in Cleveland, so I went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

I misspent many hours of my youth singing along with the music 
Woo Woo Ginsberg played on Boston's WMEX.

One floor has studios where visitors can play guitars, pianos, drums, etc.

Nearby, a band of young museum employees backs visitors who want to sing.

Stevie Nicks.  Be still, my heart.

I am one of the few in my generation who will admit not being at Woodstock.

Elvis still draws crowds.

Beatles, Hendrix, Prince, Chuck Berry.  All the greats.

There is a special place in my heart for One Hit Wonders.
Oo ee oo ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang.

I could have spent a week here.

Great trip! great photos; I spent a lot of my youth listening to WBZ out of Boston, we had reciption only at night, it was like magic every evening around seven you could listen. and CKLW out of Detroit. Locallly we had WOWO, Fort Wayne, Indiana which was okay, WBZ was the best.

I could spend a lot of time there, though the real memorial to these artists is the music they left behind.
