Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum now features a Beatles exhibit, with nearly 70 artifacts, including some “never-before-exhibited” items such as bandmember clothing and Paul McCartney’s handwritten arrangement for “Birthday.” The exhibit also displays John Lennon’s Gibson J-160E acoustic guitar, George Harrison’s Rickenbacker 425 electric guitar, Ringo Starr’s “drop-T” Beatles logo drum head from the kit he used on the Ed Sullivan Show in February 1964 and more. Says VP of exhibitions Jim Henke, “We have been fortunate to have a great relationship with Yoko Ono. This time around, we were able to work with Ringo Starr and with George Harrison’s estate, so they are well-represented in the exhibit. We also worked with some collectors who had other key Beatles pieces, and before we knew it, we had an absolutely incredible collection.”
