Items from Foo Fighters, Randy Rhoads, Tina Turner and more will be on display at a special Rock Hall 2021 Inductee Exhibit

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is gearing up for its 2021 induction ceremonies, and ahead of the festivities, the Hall has announced a special Rock Hall 2021 Inductee Exhibit. The display will feature guitars used by Dave Grohl and Randy Rhoads, plus some other items that honor the latest inductees.

The exhibit will debut on Oct. 24 at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland, Ohio. Items from a bevy of inductees will be included, including Foo Fighters, Randy Rhoads, Tina Turner, Jay-Z, Todd Rundgren, Kraftwerk, Charley Patton, Carole King, the Go-Go’s, Gil Scott-Heron, LL Cool J, Billy Preston and Clarence Avant.

To honor Foo Fighters, the Rock Hall will display Dave Grohl’s Dan Armstrong Ampeg guitar, which was his chief guitar during the Foos’ time recording and performing the “One By One” album, as well as on the “Wasting Light” tour. You can also spot Grohl’s Ampeg featured in the Foo Fighters videos “All My Life,” “The One” and “Times Like These.”

The late, great Randy Rhoads is also part of the exhibit, as the Rock Hall will display with a personally designed white asymmetrically V-shaped Jackson Concorde guitar, the guitar that Rhoads made famous during his time with Ozzy Osbourne. Rhoads is posthumously being inducted into the Rock Hall this year for Musical Excellence.

Other items of note in the exhibit include Tina Turner’s red lace dress from the “Private Dancer” music video, Todd Rundgren’s famous embroidered purple suit, Carole King’s Acrosonic piano and bench, Billy Preston’s Casio Voice Arranger VA-10 keyboard, the Go-Go’s’ costumes and more.

The 36th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony is set for Oct. 30 at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland. Segments of the show will air later during a special on HBO and HBO Max.
