Well, that was fast!

The NYC Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex is scheduled to close forever on January 3rd!

The NYC branch of Cleveland's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame opened its doors in November 2008, and housed a large amount of rock memorabilia, including Bruce Springsteen's 1957 Chevrolet and artifacts from the now-closed legendary NYC punk club, CBGB's.

"There is no doubt the economy factored into our leaving, but overall we had a good year," said spokeswoman Caren Bell.

When in doubt, blame the economy!

    From Tee Em Zee: Here's what we now confirm as the latest. A middle-aged, blond woman was taken to the hospital early this morning. We have now confirmed the call came from Tiger's address. The spokesperson for Orange County Fire initially said the 911 call came from Tiger's home but for some reason she later backed off that statement and said it might not be the same address. But, it is indeed Tiger's address. We also know a younger blond woman followed the ambulance to the hospital. And, as we reported, Elin's mom is in the U.S. to be with her daughter.

    Who do you blame for your unsuccessful endeavors Mario? Blaming the enconomy for everything seems like everyone's answer to all bad ideas.

    Bad location. Very poor marketing. Few NYers even KNOW it exists. It is had been located uptown, it could have been successful.

    you guys are nuts. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in NYC was awesome! The Lennon exhibit brought tears to my eyes. It's something everyone should see. They had great artifacts and it's a shame it's closing. Guess now i'll have to go to Cleveland.

    This was in the NYPost at the beginning of LAST week. This site jumped the shark when you got a "black eyed" pea.

    Just to clue you folks who aren't Buckeyes, we never did take anything Rock-N-Roll related that DIDN'T have any physical presence in Ohio as serious. It is the birth place! Stealing whores! LOL In all honesty, we never understood why inductions were ever done in NYC and not all done in Cleveland. We felt scammed. So, close it, whatever, we don't care. Bring it all back home!

    Stay postitive and keep trying! Make it happen and I'll do the same!



  14. 14

    FUCK YEAH!
    Thank GOD!
    The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame belongs to CLEVELAND!
    Stop trying to take our shit! We haven't got anything else! The sports here suck ASS… Even the Cavs are a tease.
    The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame should stay in CLEVELAND, not some fucking "annex" in NYC. They have enough stuff, they have enough money.
    Cleveland needs the money. Advertise that shit here.

    I did not know about the annex myself until recently. There is a great site called future rock legends that tells you who is in the Hall of Fame, how many times it took them to be nominated to get in, who the current nominees are, and eventually who the inductees will be. You can also type in the name of any (and I mean any artist) and get the year they will be eligible for nomination. Gaga is 2033.

    Re: Buckeye65
