The tour soon started and we were ushered up stairs to a gallery full of memorabilia from the many famous artists that had recorded at Sun Studios, BB King, Howling Wolf, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, U2, Roy Orbison and of course Elvis Presley to name but a few !!
Sam Philipps was the man who started Sun Studios and was responsible for capturing the sounds of Beale Street by starting the Memphis Recording Service. This is where Elvis Presley spent more than a year, hanging around the studio before his break came……………….the rest is history !!!
