The WaPo has an interview with the curator of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Interesting facts:
• The artists these days have become so aware of the value of their collectibles that some of the bands keep an archivist on their staff.
• Bob Dylan is the artist they've had the hardest time getting donations from.
• Some artists, like Green Day, demand and get private afterhours tours of the museum, while others -- unnamed -- just go in and mingle with the riffraff.
