Little Richard, Joe Walsh, Ike Turner, Michelle Phillips, Wilson Pickett, George Clinton, Bo Diddley and Peter Wolf joined fellow inductees at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Thursday as the Cleveland, Ohio-based museum celebrated the opening of its newly-remodeled wing.
Providing a completely interactive experience for Hall of Fame visitors, the newly constructed wing officially opened Friday and features three 20-foot-tall movie screens that will roll footage of past induction ceremonies.
In addition, the circular construction will house the world's most extensive juke box (containing more than 20,000 songs), offering museum visitors a more intimate look at Hall of Fame inductees in the form of interviews, animation and still photography. New exhibit cases containing collectibles from the museum's current roster of inductees will also be included, giving what Hall of Fame spokesman Tim Moore says is "a much deeper feeling of who these inductees are."
