e: Sun Studio

Sun Studio where Sam Philips gave Elvis, Johnny Cash, BB King and others their start.

As documented in The Man Comes Around: The Spiritual Journey of Johnny Cash, Sam Philips refused to let Jonny Cash do goespel songs. To me Sun Studios is icon of pop culture and the tension with faith and it's intersection with pop culture.

- Peace

I visited it back when I was in junior high and I was in total awe of the place. I was really into Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis at the time. It was a lot of fun to really see the best I saw so often on movies. If those walls could talk.
