Beatles exhibited updated, expanded at Rock & Rock Hall of Fame
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland announced updates and additions to its exhibit celebrating the musical and cultural contributions of the Beatles.
New highlights to the exhibit include an Archibald Ramsden upright piano. In 1963, Paul McCartney moved in with his girlfriend, Jane Asher, at her parents' home in central London and lived there for three years. The piano was located in the basement music room and was where McCartney and John Lennon composed iconic songs such as “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “And I Love Her,” “We Can Work it Out,” “Got to Get You Into My Life,” and “Eleanor Rigby.”
Other items featured include drumsticks used by Ringo Starr during the Beatles concert at Cleveland's Public Auditorium on Sept. 15, 1964; a suit worn by George Harrison during the group's 1966 tour; McCartney's musical score/notes for “Birthday,” written in blue ink on the back of a recording track sheet; and a Hofner Senator electric guitar purchased by Lennon during the Beatles' time in Germany and used as a practice, studio and composition instrument.
The updates will debut Dec. 22. The group was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988.
Admission is $23.50, $21.25 for seniors, $13.75 for ages 6-12
