Hi all,

If you find yourself in Seattle with nothing to do you might try a look 
at the new Experience Music Project museum near the Seattle Space 
Needle. I just went through it yesterday and found it quite 
interesting. There is a lot of information on the history of Rock as it 
developed  from R&B, Blues and Jazz with interactive displays, films, 
audio clips, instruments and other artifacts. There is also a very 
extensive display on the guitar and bass guitar in the entire 20th 
century with much emphasis on jazz performances.

The major focus of the museum is more on what happens AFTER rock & roll 
develops - but that is OK by me, personally (being the Boomer that I am 

To top it all off, the building itself is some incredible architecture 
by Frank O. Gehry - the same person that did the museum in Bilbao, 
Spain among other things.
