Damn shame we don't have a meet-up for the Memphis area. I live downtown and recently moved here. Been looking for a good audio club or hoping for a meetup. It feels like a more music influenced city than Nashville personally, what with the numerous recording artists from the area who keep the city afloat with donations and concerts. Plus Beale Street bars/nightly musicians, Memphis in May and the Beale Street Music Festival are pretty incredible events to attend.
Just to name a few greats though Memphis has Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Muddy Waters, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Robert Johnson, W. C. Handy, B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, Isaac Hayes, Booker T. Jones, Eric Gales, Al Green, Alex Chilton, Justin Timberlake, Three 6 Mafia, The Sylvers, Jay Reatard and Aretha Franklin.
R E S P E C T, respect dat legacy. Also I got to meet B.B. King at his club sometime last year and Justin Timberlake and his lovely wife leaving the nail bar in the Harbour Town area. It is a shame how far the city has fallen though with crime, poverty and businesses leaving. But that is everywhere in the USA that isn't kept afloat by federal stimulus injections .
