Rocker Billy Joel has donated memorabilia to a new rock and roll museum in New York.
The Big Apple native joined record mogul Clive Davis and New York mayor Michael Bloomberg on Wednesday (13Aug08) at a press conference to announce the new extension to Cleveland, Ohio's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Joel said, "New York gave me my words and my music, and rock and roll gave me a place for that music to live."
The SoHo building will open in November (08) and house exhibits donated by musicians with a connection to the city, including John Lennon and Bruce Springsteen.
