CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is in Cleveland thanks in large part to Alan Freed.

But Freed is no longer welcome in the Rock Hall, according to his son, Lance Freed.

Lance Freed says he was told several months ago by Rock Hall President and Chief Executive Officer Greg Harris that he would have to "immediately" remove his father's ashes, which had been on display since 2002, from the building.

"He said, 'look Lance, there's something strange, people walk past the exhibit and your dad's ashes and they scratch their heads and can't figure out what this thing is, and we'd like you to come pick up the ashes."

You're right, Nick...
there are tons of BETTER ways to honor the man.
You'd think his family would want to keep the ashes, anyway!
