  • It has always been one of my favorite places in Chicago. The rock and roll exhibit that is currently there is very well done and absolutely fantastic. Even if you have been there before it's well worth seeing
  • It was absolutely amazing I got to meet Bob Stroud who happens to be my favorite radio announcer. The history be behind all of this is remarkable! All the works loaned Rock and roll Hall of Fame
