Alan Freed’s ashes moving out of Hall of Fame, as Beyonce exhibit moves in

Beyonce

“[DJ Alan Freed‘s son] Lance Freed said he believed his father’s exhibit is being downsized and moved to another area of the [Rock and Roll Hall of Fame] museum, but [Executive Director Greg] Harris said it is not being changed beyond removal of the gold urn. Harris suggested that Freed’s son might feel better about the move after he visits the museum Monday morning…

…Harris defended the ouster of Freed’s ashes coming at the same time that Beyonce‘s leotards are welcomed into the hall of fame. “Rock and roll isn’t just about yesterday,” he said. “It continues to evolve, and we continue to embrace it and refine our operations.”” [CNN]
