Rock Hall Announces Grateful Dead Exhibit

The Rock Hall Of Fame inductions are actually slated to take place in Cleveland this year and the museum announced that the induction week will also feature the opening of its latest special exhibit - Grateful Dead: The Long, Strange Trip. The Hall's Jim Henke says the exhibit will convey a sense of why the Dead transcended the limitations of being just a band and '...wrote their own rules and created a community unlike any band before or sense' - (Phish and NIN fans may take issue).
The exhibit will include original album cover and poster art, manuscripts from classic songs, a portion of the group's famous 'Wall Of Sound' PA system, unusual artifacts including notes written by audience tape guru Dick Latvala, GD items from the collection of the late Owsley 'Bear' Stanley, drums and keyboards used on tour and 5 Jerry Garcia guitars and two belonging to Bob Weir.
The Mickey Hart Band will perform at the exhibit opening event on Wednesday, April 11.  The exhibit opens to the public the following day.
