Tour Sun Records, where Elvis, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash got their start. Check out the Rock n’ Soul Museum where music and history collide. Get your groove on and learn a thing or two about soul music atStax Records (“Nothing against the Louvre, but you can’t dance to Da Vinci”).
I learned a lot on this trip, including there’s a lot more to Memphis than just Graceland.
And to help you soak up all that knowledge, there’s plenty of beer and blues on Beale Street. Did I mention the wonderful food too: fried chicken, barbecue ribs, barbecue chicken, mint juleps etc., etc. (© 2009 Mark Micheli)
