Music Masters Series Honors Rolling Stones
Running from October 21 through to October 26, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 18th Annual Music Masters Series will be honoring the long and successful career of the Rolling Stones. Under the banner of “It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (But I Like It): The Music of the Rolling Stones” the event will feature interviews, films, panel discussions and a conference at Rock Hall focusing on the influence the legendary group has had on pop music. The Rolling Stones were inducted Into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989 and are currently being honored with an exhibit at Rock Hall entitled “The Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction”. The exhibit opened in May and continues until March 2014.
