Has anybody been to the Rock ' Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland? I was there when it opened, but for the life of me, I can't remember what Beatles stuff is in there. There wasn't much at the time cuz they had stuff from every rock star who donated something, quantity, not quality. I think they had a special exhibit for John's 70th birthday. Anyways...back to our museum: gate from Strawberry Field, Eleanor Rigby tombstone, alarm clock from "Day in the Life" (wonder whatever happened to that...Mal Evans took it?), pair of John's glasses, Stu Sutcliffe's bass, Ringo's ring from "Help!"

Someone posted at Reddit about John's Sgt. Pepper uniform at the Hall of Fame museum.

I love these responses, everyone!

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

^^ The rooftop of 3 Saville Row, surely then?

 

Where is George's sitar actually? I'd presume Olivia and Dhani still own it, but both of them don't really play sitar couldn't they lend it to a Rock 'N' Roll museum for a couple of years. George's Mini is another thing I'd like to see!

Sgt. Pepper's costumes are an obvious choice along with Shea stadium jackets maybe?

The "Magical Mystery Tour" bus would be cool, as would any Beatle-used keyboards they could salvage from Abbey Road. (And so what if much of this stuff probably doesn't even EXIST anymore?)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

We need to bust out that time travel machine again.

A selection of the drugs they took (behind an alarmed glass cabinet).

George's Mini (from MMT)

The leather gear they wore in the early days

Has Ed Sullivan's Theatre been suggested, we would need that?

The hole from Yellow Submarine.

Some Blue Meanies (especially Max), Apple Bonkers and the Flying Glove.

See post 8 on page one.

By the way, Katie, you may be only a Junior, but do you have a sleeping bag or blanket we could have? a-hard-days-night-george-10

 

Sure, do you want my Paul stalking blanket, my George stalking blanket, my Abbey Road sleeping bag or my Apple poncho???

Can we add Dr. Robert's special cup to that display?

Katie, can we have them all? We can rotate the one on display. That will keep bringing people back.

The sisters wouldn't wait for you to return? Hope you gave them a a-hard-days-night-paul-11 and ablue-meanie
