The live stream interview will kick off on Wednesday, September 16th at 7pm and is available to view on the Rock Hall's Facebook and YouTube pages. Fans will also have a chance to participate and ask questions after the interview during a Q&A session.

In celebration of the museum's 25th anniversary and the release of Nite's book The House that Rock Built: How It Took Time, Money, Music Moguls, Corporate Types, Politicians, Media, Artists, and Fans to Bring the Rock Hall to Cleveland, the legendary broadcaster "Mr. Music" will discuss the stories and memories of how the Rock Hall came to Cleveland with VP of Education Jason Hanley. 

The House that Rock Built chronicles the behind-the-scenes battle for the Rock Hall and how the iconic museum ultimately came to Cleveland. While the Rock Hall has become an iconic landmark for the city of Cleveland and for fans of rock and roll around the world, it was just one missed phone call away from never being built in Cleveland.

About the Book

The House that Rock Built: How It Took Time, Money, Music Moguls, Corporate Types, Politicians, Media, Artists, and Fans to Bring the Rock Hall to Cleveland is by Norm N. Nite and Tom Feran, with Forewords by Stevie Van Zandt and Seymour Stein.

The House that Rock Built chronicles the behind-the-scenes battle for the Rock Hall and how the iconic museum ultimately came to Cleveland. For 25 years, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has defined Cleveland’s image as the “Rock and Roll Capital of the World.” But while the Rock Hall has become an iconic landmark for the city of Cleveland and for fans of rock and roll around the world, it was just one missed phone call away from never being built in Cleveland. If prominent singer and actress Lesley Gore hadn’t contacted radio personality Norm N. Nite in August 1983, the Hall of Fame would not be in Cleveland—period.
