Massive Rolling Stones Exhibit Launched at Rock Hall Museum
A newly-opened exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum is offering a plethora of riches for Rolling Stones fans. The museum is devoting nearly three floors to Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction, a comprehensive retrospective filled with artifacts, film, text and interactive media. Among the treasures on display are Mick Jagger’s green leather jacket from the 1989 Steel Wheels tour, the Appalachian dulcimer Brian Jones played on “Lady Jane,” and the bomber jacket worn by Keith Richards on the cover of the 1966 album Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass).
In addition, for the first time, the museum has launched a fan-generated interactive project in which participants from around the world can share photos of Stones-related memorabilia, artwork, concerts and other items.
"You have to show people the scope of their career, and there's nothing comparable in the history of recorded music,” says Howard Kramer, curatorial director for the museum. “They're much more than the bad boys of rock. Keith has said, 'I still look at this as a Chicago blues band.' But the richness of the story is in the quality, sustainability and impact they've had."
During the exhibit’s run, The Stones will be the subject of free public programs, interviews, films and lectures. Click here for further details.
