It's only rock and roll but we LOVE it.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Case Western Reserve University will honor 1989 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, the Rolling Stones, during the 18th Annual Music Masters series "It's Only Rock 'n Roll (But I Like It): The Music of The Rolling Stones," beginning Monday, October 21 through Saturday, October 26, 2013 in Cleveland. This year, the series will be renamed the Annual Music Masters to reflect the historical evolution and expansion of the rock and roll story. The series is sponsored by ELS Surround.
The tribute concert on October 26 will be anchored by a group of top flight musicians who have performed with the Rolling Stones over their 50-year career and contributed to shaping the band's extraordinary sound. Grammy Award-winning drummer Steve Jordan will lead the house band as musical director. Jordan has assembled a group of critically-acclaimed musicians, including Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Ian McLagan, Lisa Fischer, Bernard Fowler, Bobby Keys, Trevor Lawrence, Steve Madaio, Ivan Neville, Waddy Wachtel and Willie Weeks to perform. Additional artists will be announced in the coming weeks, along with a schedule of events.
The 18th annual series begins on Monday, October 21, and will feature interviews, panels, films and educational programs throughout the week, including a keynote lecture at Case Western Reserve University.
On Saturday, October 26, a conference will be held at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the Rolling Stones' impact on popular music. The tribute concert will also be held Saturday, October 26, at 7:30PM at PlayhouseSquare's State Theatre in Cleveland. For more information and updates, visit rockhall.com.
