On September 2, 1995, the museum opened its' doors on the shores of Lake Erie, in a pyramid-shaped building overseen and designed by world-renowned architect, I.M. Pei.

Since 1986, the Rock Hall hosts an induction ceremony every spring, inducting 5-7 artists of various genres. The 1st ever Rock Hall inductee is Chuck Berry. Over a decade ago, 10-15 artists were inducted before lowering the number between 5-7. The ceremony switches each year between Cleveland and New York City, on a few separate occasions, the ceremony has also been held in Los Angeles.
I'm going to visit the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Moody Blues finally got inducted after nearly 30 years of eligibility.
