Rock Hall Planning Walk Of Fame To Honor Inductees

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is planning a Walk of Fame featuring names of inductees on bronze plaques set into downtown Cleveland sidewalks.

The Plain Dealer newspaper reports the Cleveland Planning Commission on Friday approved the proposal. The museum plans to unveil the first 17 plaques, to honor this year’s inductees, on April 4 in advance of the April 14 induction ceremony at Cleveland’s Public Hall.

The first 17 are being financed by the Rock Hall board for $5,000 each. A spokeswoman says sponsorship of the rest will be auctioned at a yet-to-be determined price that will fund materials and installation and help defray costs of future induction ceremonies.

The project requires approval from City Council, which plans to consider the matter on Feb. 27.
