The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland is honoring the Rolling Stones in a week-long celebration called “It’s Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It): The Music of the Rolling Stones," which begins Oct. 21, 2013, and ends with a Rolling Stones tribute concert at PlayhouseSquare’s State Theatre on Oct. 26, 2013. (The Rolling Stones will not be at the concert due to other commitments.) According to a Cleveland.com report on Sept. 5, 2013, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has renamed its American Music Masters award to the Annual Music Masters so that non-American artists such as the Rolling Stones can receive the award. The Rolling Stones will be the 18th recipient of the prize.
The Rolling Stones were inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989. As previously reported, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum launched a special Rolling Stones exhibit called "50 Years of Satisfaction" to celebrate the band's 50th anniversary. The exhibit opened on May 24, 2013, and closes sometime in March 2014.
As for the Rolling Stones tribute concert in Cleveland on Oct. 26, 2013, even though the Stones will not be there, some of their associates will be performing at the show. They include Rolling Stones backup singers Lisa Fischer and Bernard Fowler; Rolling Stones saxophonist Bobby Keys; Ian McLagan of the Faces; Steve Madaio; Ivan Neville; Waddy Wachtel; Willie Weeks; and musical director Steve Jordan.
