CLEVELAND — On the eve of his 70th birthday, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has dedicated a time capsule in honour of John Lennon containing several CDs, DVDs and books and two notes written by widow Yoko Ono. The stainless steel capsule dedicated Friday will be kept in the Cleveland museum’s archives at a nearby college campus.
Assistant curator Meredith Rutledge tells The Plain Dealer that the goal of the capsule was to preserve the “legacy of peace and love” of former the Beatles member.
About 100 people attended the dedication, which marks the start of a weekend of events in honour of Lennon’s birthday. The capsule is scheduled to be opened in 2040, on Lennon’s 100th birthday.
