#20 The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Let’s Rock and Roll! in Cleavland, Ohio. If you want to take a nostalgic trip down rock and roll lane this is the place for you. If you are around 55 years old I totally recommend it because you can hear and see the sound track of your life. However, even if you are younger, it’s still good. There is something here for every rock and roller no matter what your age. The only downside is that it’s a little confusing because of the sheer volume of memorabilia. But if you go you won’t be disappointed I’m sure of that. Be sure and see the 63 minute multi-media production that combines film footage, music, interviews, animation and still photography that tells the stories of the Hall of Fame Inductees. (an aside) Carolyn, Bonnie Raitt is in that inductee presentation but we didn’t see anything else about her, there was some stuff on Van Morrison though. Les Blank tells me there was a clip from his Lightnin’ Hopkins film in there somewhere too but we missed it.
