On Tuesday, March 18 at 7 p.m., in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's intimate Foster Theater, 2006 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee and original Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock and Sylvain Sylvain of the New York Dolls will perform an acoustic set of songs from the Sex Pistols, New York Dolls as well as other punk rock classics. Howard Kramer, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum’s Curatorial Director, will sit down with the two and talk about their past exploits and rich punk rock history. Matlock will also be collecting his statue from the 2006 Induction Ceremony, which the Sex Pistols did not attend, making for one of the more infamous moments in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame history.
Tickets are $10. Tickets are available through the Rock Hall website at tickets.rockhall.com or at the Rock Hall Box Office.
The Hall of Fame Series, which began in April 1996, is a cornerstone of the Museum’s curatorial and educational efforts. By bringing inductees to Cleveland (and occasionally to venues in other parts of the country) on a regular basis, the series offers audiences rare and unique access to Hall of Famers in an intimate setting. Formats for these once-in-a-lifetime events have inspired spontaneous conversation and impromptu performances, special presentations, and audience-participation question and answer sessions. The series celebrates the careers of some of rock music’s biggest names and allows the public to learn about the history and influence of rock and roll from the people who made it. Each Hall of Fame Series is audio and/or videotaped for use in the Museum’s future Library and Archives.
