Rock & Roll Hall of Fame museum in Cleveland has updated its exhibit focusing on The Beatles‘ musical and cultural contributions with a variety of new pieces of memorabilia. The new items is an upright piano that John Lennon and Paul McCartney used to write a number of classic Fab Four tunes.
The piano was located in the home of the parents of Paul’s then-girlfriend Jane Asher, where Paul lived for three years starting in 1963. The instrument was used to write such songs as “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “And I Love Her,” “We Can Work It Out,” “Got to Get You into My Life” and “Eleanor Rigby.”
Other new collectibles featured in the exhibit include drumsticks used by Ringo at a Beatles show in Cleveland in September 1964, a suit that George wore during the band’s 1966 tour, a handwritten musical score and notes penned by Paul for the song “Birthday,” and a Hofner Senator electric guitar that John bought during the Fab Four’s time in Germany and that he used in the studio and to write songs.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is open 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET daily except for Wednesdays, when its hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The museum is closed on Christmas Day.
