’Rock and roll’ deejay’s ashes remain in Cleveland

 CLEVELAND – The cremated remains of the deejay widely credited with coining the phrase “rock and roll” were removed from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum but are expected to remain in Cleveland.

 WKYC-TV reports that Alan Freed’s family has decided his final resting spot will be Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland.

 Freed’s son and daughter-in-law left the rock and roll museum with an urn containing his cremated remains earlier this month.

 The ashes had been on display since 2002. Rock Hall officials say a decision was made to focus Freed’s exhibit more on his story.

 Freed was one of the original inductees into the hall. He died in 1965 at age 43.
