Rock Hall Upgrades Beatles

Closer relationships with Olivia Harrison and members of Ringo Starr's inner circle helped the Rock Hall Of Fame add more Beatles artifacts to the music Mecca's collection. The Cleveland museum's existing relationship with Yoko Ono had allowed it to acquire a number of John Lennon items.  New to the Beatles section of the museum are instruments, stage clothing and smaller items, including the a drum head Ringo pounded to be heard over an audience filled with love-struck screaming girls during the group's Ed Sullivan Show appearance.  The museum has also upgraded the quality of the sound, video and interactive elements, according to Jim Henke, VP of Special Exhibits.
