McIntosh is the music to a musician’s ear

Celebrities and rock stars descended upon Cleveland, Ohio, on Saturday, April 14, 2012, for the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Many events took place in the days leading up to the big show, including the opening of the Hall of Fame’s new “Grateful Dead: The Long, Strange Trip” exhibition, sponsored by McIntosh Laboratory, the global leader in prestigious audio for over 60 years.

McIntosh was also on hand on Saturday night to present each of the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame performing inductees with a gift of one of its acclaimed MANHATTAN Collection (MXA60) tabletop music systems.

“This year’s roster of inductees into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame includes performers and songwriters who have truly changed the course of modern music,” says McIntosh President Charlie Randall. “They have all presented the world with a legacy of work that will live on and continue to inspire generations of musicians and fans for years to come. As a company with deep roots in American music history, McIntosh is proud to recognize their achievements with the gift of a McIntosh music system – one that we hope they will enjoy for years to come as well!”

This year’s inductees into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame include: Guns N’ Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donovan, Laura Nyro, The Small Faces/Faces, Beastie Boys, The Crickets, The Famous Flames, The Midnighters, The Comets, The Blue Caps, and The Miracles, as well as other influential music inductees including Freddie King, Don Kirshner, Cosimo Matassa, Tom Dowd, and Glyn Johns.
