What’s significant about Cleveland and Rock & Roll you might ask?
Well, the name Rock & Roll was coined by a local DJ right here in Cleveland!

We have mixed feelings about this museum of Rock and Roll.
While, Rock music is AWESOME! We feel most of the items here aren’t much different than what we see at any Hard Rock Cafe restaurant. Granted… there is more of it here, so let’s get rolling! …. and rockin’!!

What Exactly Is In Here?

For starters, Jimi Hendrix’s studio mixing board
