WHO: Issue 1092 of Rolling Stone magazine, in stores today, November 13, features a nine-page feature story on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum with testimonials from Yoko Ono and Bruce Springsteen.
WHAT: Rolling Stone magazine examines the Museum’s history to its conception, from its first collection piece (original lyrics to “Purple Haze” by Jimi Hendrix) to the most arguably bizarre (one of Bob Marley’s dreadlocks). Readers will receive a behind-the-scenes look at how Chief Curator Jim Henke and Curatorial Director Howard Kramer obtain, preserve and exhibit the Museum’s treasured artifacts that tell the story of rock and roll.
The article also highlights the Museum’s education programs for students and teachers as well as looking ahead to the opening of the Library and Archives in downtown Cleveland in 2010; the same year that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will celebrate its 15th anniversary.
WHEN: This special issue of Rolling Stone is available on newsstands as of today, November 13, 2009.
MORE: Rolling Stone issue 1092 features Rock Hall Inductees Bono from U2, Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen on its cover and offers an inside look at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 25th Anniversary Concerts in New York City October 29 and 30, 2009.
