Road Trip visit: Sun Studio, Memphis





During our trip to Memphis, we took time to stop by Sun Studio, the birthplace of rock n roll, where Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, and many others got their start.

I highly recommend checking out this landmark. Musicians still use it all the time to make records. In fact, during the hour-long tour, Elvis Costello and blues guitarist Hubert Sumlin stopped by to chat.



They have a microphone that dates to the 1950s which was used by Elvis, and many other original pieces of equipment from that era.



Check out Sun Studio if you are in Memphis.

Did you happen to checkout Graceland while you were there? That is one place I got sucked into. Huge tourist trap.

I didn't pay for the tour but I went for the free gravesite visit they do on Monday mornings. That was pretty cool.
