(Gibson) The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio, has put together "the most comprehensive, artifact-driven Beatles exhibit in the world," according to what Jim Henke, vice president of exhibitions, told Billboard.com.

Henke said that the organization has developed relationships with George Harrison's widow, Olivia, and Ringo Starr's representatives to bring more original items into the museum. He said the Rock Hall already had a good relationship with Yoko Ono, who ensured John Lennon was well-represented.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has expanded the section on The Beatles, which now includes a striped suit worn by Harrison on a 1966 tour and Ringo's red jacket from the "Strawberry Fields Forever" video. The exhibit also includes instruments the boys played, including Ringo's Beatles drumhead from the band's appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show and a guitar played by Lennon and Harrison. Paul McCartney is represented, too, by his Help! jacket and handwritten "Birthday" arrangement. more on this story
