History of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
The foundation of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was created by Ahmet Ertegun, the founder and chairman of Atlantic Records on the 20th of April 1983. He formed a team that consisted of attorneys Suzan Evans and Allen Grubman, Jann S. Wenner, the editor and publisher of the Rolling Stone magazine, and Bob Krasnow, Noreen Woods, and Seymour Stein, the record executives. The Foundation started inducting performers during 1986, but the Hall of Fame still had no abode. The exploration committee considered numerous cities, including Memphis, which is the home of Stax Records and Sun Studios, Detroit, the home of Motown Records, Cincinnati, the abode of King Records in New York City, and Cleveland City.
During early debates on where to construct the Hall of Fame and Museum, the board of the Foundation considered the Cuyahoga River. Eventually, the chosen locality has been in the Cleveland city center of Lake Erie, just located on the eastern side of the Great Lakes Science Center and the Cleveland Browns Stadium.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame museum was dedicated with the ribbon being cut by a band on the 1st of September 1995 that included Little Richard, an American songwriter, recording artist, and musician and Yoko Ono, a Japanese singer, multimedia artist and peace activist, among others, before a mass of over 10,000 people. The next night an all-star performance was held at the stadium. The performance was featured with celebrities, such as Bob Dylan, Chuck Berry, Al Green, Aretha Franklin, Jerry Lee Lewis, Iggy Pop, Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, John Fogerty, and several others.
