Elvis items now at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
CLEVELAND – Old-time Elvis Presley fans and lots of newer, younger ones flocked to a new exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Friday to see his stylish ID bracelet, custom-made motorcycle, eye-catching rings and military mementos.
The exhibit opened in conjunction with Elvis Presley Enterprises and includes more than 40 artifacts loaned by his Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tenn.
The items include a walnut-size 41-carat ruby and diamond ring, a 25.5-carat opal ring and a sapphire pinkie ring.
The rock hall inducted Presley in 1986 and calls him “the undisputed King of Rock and Roll.”
The rock hall says he holds records for the most Top 40 hits with 104 and the most Top 10 hits with 38.
“Elvis was the creator, he was the beginning,” said fan Peter Webster, 72, of Portland, Maine, while visiting the rock hall during a family holiday gathering in Cleveland.
