influential role on modern music. With a permanent collection
drawing from the most impressive and iconic rock and roll artefacts
and a wide-ranging roster of on-going and temporary exhibits, the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is dedicated to exploring the
past, present and future of the music. The Museum augments its own
massive collection of thousands of artefacts with items on loan
from artists and collectors from around the world. It includes
exhibits dedicated to the museum's choice of all-time top artists,
including Elvis Presley, the Beatles, U2 and the Rolling Stones. As
