Sun Studio - Studio!
Here's the place where the action happened!! The same room where Elvis Presley first recorded, and he and many other rock legends sang. The way the tour guide explained it, the old school guys who made Sun Studio famous hung around here as friends having jam sessions long after they were on to bigger and better things with other studios (Elvis got sold by Sun to RCA). This is the original floor, the original walls, original ceiling, etc. etc. Which means it's probably asbestos. BUT ANYWAY - we got to stand on the "X" where Elvis stood, and sing into the microphone where *ALL* the big stars of Sun Studio sang. Win!
