“50 Years of Satisfaction in 2 Hours at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is must-see stop during a trip to Cleveland, so we’ve included it as a part1-1245851999-rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame of Content Marketing World. Join us Monday night as our friends from Skyword sponsor a networking night where the Rock Hall is open just for #CMWorld attendees! While you could spend days looking at the thousands of exhibits and memorabilia, two hours can get you a satisfying taste of Rock-n-Roll history, especially if you’re a Rolling Stones or Beatles fan. The “Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction” is the museum’s first major exhibition that chronicles the legendary band’s 50-year career. It features personal items and a host of artifacts, film and interactive technology. For example, the exhibit includes several iPad-based interactive apps that illustrate the Stones’ early influences; the songwriting secrets of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards; and the art of including other genres into their music. Other cool features include huge Stones’ posters used as backdrops behind each case of artifacts and hand-written notes from Jagger to the band’s manager, which show his influence and role in the band’s business side. The Stones’ exhibit, which takes up two-and-a-half floors at the museum, tells the story of the band from the mid-1960s until today. It chronicles its earliest days playing in small clubs to playing in sold-out stadiums, thanks to classic hits such as “Gimme Shelter,” “Paint It Black,” “Jumping Jack Flash,” “Tumbling Dice” and “It’s Only Rock And Roll” If you’re more of a Beatles buff, you can check out what the museum touts as “the most comprehensive, artifact-driven Beatles exhibit in the world.” Highlights include: • George Harrison’s striped suit from the 1966 U.S. tour • Ringo Starr’s 1969 birthday card to John Lennon
 • Paul McCartney’s handwritten arrangement for “Birthday”

 • John Lennon’s Gibson J-160E acoustic guitar, which he used to record “Norwegian Wood” and “Give Peace a Chance” among other classics For more information check out:
