Hail To the Hall Of Famers
It would probably have been more appropriate to mention this last week, but with the Labor Day holiday, I just now came across this interesting tidbit.
It was on Aug. 31, 1995, that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum opened in Cleveland, Ohio.
Cleveland is argued to be rock's birthplace, beginning in the studios of Radio Station WMMS. Disc jockey Alan Freed first used the term "rock and roll" in the early 1950's.
This piqued my interest because my 15-year-old son James recently expressed interest in taking a trip to Cleveland to see the museum. Of course, he's more into metal and classic rock, but he is fascinated with the history of rock music, even dating back to its earliest roots, and he felt he would really enjoy it.
It may be a few years, but I'll figure out a way to get him there, because I'd love to see it, too.
Enjoy the music!
