Annex Rock´n Roll Hall of Fame Opening, New York City

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex in New York’s Soho opened its doors last night with a bang: Visitors took an audio tour of the museum with a little help from wireless headphones before retreating upstairs to a huge loft party.

Rolling Stone’s Jann S. Wenner gave the opening remarks, and Dave Mason performed the Traffic hit “Feelin Alright.” Debbie Harry, in a black beret, belted out “Call Me” and a border-line acoustic version of “Heart of Glass.” After making their way down the red carpet, guests such as Jimmy Destri, Les Paul and Run DMC’s Darryl McDaniels took turns signing a huge make-shift plywood wall.
