Rolling Stones to be honored during the 18th Annual Music Masters series

(Cleveland) – It seem the Rolling Stones can get some satisfaction.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Case Western Reserve University will honor the Rolling Stones during the 18th Annual Music Masters series.

"It’s Only Rock 'n Roll (But I Like It): The Music of The Rolling Stones" will begin Monday, October 21 and run through Saturday, October 26, 2013 in Cleveland.

This year, the series will be renamed the Annual Music Masters to reflect the historical evolution and expansion of the rock and roll story.  

The tribute concert on October 26 will be anchored by a group of top flight musicians who have performed with the Rolling Stones over their fifty year career and contributed to shaping the band’s extraordinary sound.

Grammy Award-winning drummer Steve Jordan will lead the house band as musical director. Jordan has assembled a group of critically-acclaimed musicians, including Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Ian McLagan, Lisa Fischer, Bernard Fowler, Bobby Keys, Trevor Lawrence, Steve Madaio, Ivan Neville, Waddy Wachtel and Willie Weeks to perform.

Additional artists will be announced in the coming weeks, along with a schedule of events.

"We are very excited to expand the stories we tell in the Music Masters program,” said Lauren Onkey, vice president of education for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. “Rock and roll caught fire around the world, and we want to reflect that in this program. The Rolling Stones were inspired by so many great American artists in creating their own original brand of rock and roll--it's an incredible story. We have an outstanding band to showcase the music of the Stones."

“The Museum is proud to honor the Rolling Stones during their 50th anniversary year,” said Greg Harris, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.  “In addition to our blockbuster exhibit, which has attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world, we will take this opportunity to dig deeper into the story of this groundbreaking band that challenged and changed the face of rock and roll.”

The Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction exhibition opened in May 2013 and celebrates the Rolling Stones’ incredible contribution to popular music.
