Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to Open Annex in NYC

Sweet, maybe now I'll actually get to visit the thing (sorry Cleveland-ers). And maybe the estate of CBGS's owner Hilly Kristal will be enticed to open something in this Annex and stay true to the NYC-location instead of some Hard Rock Cafe version in Las Vegas.

Best reason I heard recently about why one shouldn't attend the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: "The fucking Dave Clark Five are in there. That's like inducting Candlebox."

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is coming to New York. Mayor Michael Bloomberg is expected to announce Wednesday that the Cleveland-based museum and hall of fame is opening an annex in downtown Manhattan.

Billy Joel and Clive Davis are going to join the mayor at the location in the SoHo neighborhood. It will be the first time the hall of fame has expanded outside Cleveland.

The 25,000-square-foot annex will house Bruce Springsteen's 1957 Chevy and will feature a number of different exhibits, including one featuring New York City-based sites that have musical significance. (NY Post)
