It’s Monday, so we must be in Cleveland.

Yes, with a package deal at the hotel that included tix to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum!! Our takeaway: it’s fun. Once.

I liked seeing the costumes close-up (so I could check sewing details). I also enjoyed seeing the wear patterns on the guitars.

Perhaps the most interesting exhibit was on Les Paul (and not because they had three different spellings of his original last name; Wikipedia gives it as Lester William Polsfuss, but that wasn’t the most common one in Cleveland). I didn’t know he invented the brace for holding a harmonica, with the chest piece that props it in front of the mouth (see Bob Dylan photos, example here).
