Stanley died after a battle with lung cancer on March 5. His career spanned five decades. He was best known for the Michael Stanley Band, and hit songs “Lover” and “He Can’t Love You.”

The celebration started at 10:15 a.m. on the Rock Hall plaza. Fans joined Stanley’s daughters and members of The Resonators.

“The energy of his music and its ability to bring people together helped to make Cleveland the Rock & Roll Capital of the World, and it galvanized the community to rally together and make our city the home of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame,” said Greg Harris, Rock Hall president and CEO. “His contributions to rock & roll and our region will not be forgotten, and we are honored to preserve his legacy and tell his story forever at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.”

Additionally, artifacts from Stanley’s career will be on display throughout the Rock Hall’s ‘In Memoriam’ exibit. They’ll include his Jon Hill custom guitar and new items from his collection, including handwritten lyrics and setlists.

From the time Michael and I started working together in 1969, and all the way to the present, we put songs into two categories: Rockers were “Rousers, and ballads were “Weepies”. Weepies didn’t have to be sad, just slow. So to introduce you to “Tough Room” may I present one of each. The album opener, “Hold On” is the Rouser, and a gorgeous ballad, “You’re The One” is the Weepie. Enjoy.
