  • The story of The Rolling Stones is so huge it takes 21⁄2 floors of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum to tell.
    The Cleveland-based museum will open “Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction,” an exclusive exhibit celebrating the archetypal rock band, on May 24.
    The exhibit will be open until March 2014 and will include personal and collected items that have never before been seen by the public along with film, text and interactive components and periodic lectures on the band’s 50-year career. The entire exhibit will take up more than two floors of the museum.
    “The Rolling Stones are the epitome of rock and roll,” said Greg Harris, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the organization’s website. “This first-ever exhibit gives us an opportunity to tell the story of one of the definitive rock and roll bands. The experience should be on every music fan’s destination list this summer.”
    Throughout the exhibition’s run, the museum will host numerous free public programs that explore the significance and legacy of the Rolling Stones, including interviews, films, and special lectures.
    Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and The Stones recently held a series of concerts to celebrate their 50th year together and there have been rumors of more activity.
