Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum presents "Rolling Stones : 50 Years of Satisfaction" exhibit

As London's Victoria & Albert Museum continues to break attendance records with its blockbuster David Bowie Is exhibition (tickets have been sold out since the first days of the March opening, a first in the museum's venerable history) Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has unveiled an ambitious Rolling Stones retrospective. 50 Years of Satisfaction coincides with the iconic band's current "50 and Counting" tour and celebrates the Stones' unique legacy. Among the personal items and extraordinary collections on view is a development-stage version of Guy Peellaert's famous album artwork for It's Only Rock ' N Roll.
On loan from a private collector, the black-and-white collage from 1975 provides a rare opportunity to witness the artist's complex and painstaking layering technique in the days before the ubiquity of software-assisted photographic compositing. Peellaert destroyed almost all of the Rock Dreams-era sketches and tentative compositions.
This is the first time the piece is exhibited in the U.S.
