Rock n Roll is a term created by Cleveland radio host Alan Freed-which is why 
the Hall of Fame is located in Cleveland. Rock n Roll was a new term for an 
older style of music-rhythm and blues-jump blues, which became soul music in the 
early 60s. IMO. the hall has it in reverse, it should be the Rhythm N Blues Hall 
of Fame with a wing dedicated to its derivative, Rock & Roll and Rock without 
the roll. Muddy Waters said it best, "the blues had a baby and they called it 
rock n roll"
