Where it all began!

This pic is from the corner looking at the building where Sun Studios is located. This door goes into the waiting area for tours, it used to be a cool diner and still has the booths and counter top, really cool place and leads to the gift shop upstairs. The actual studio is down the sidewalk and is really just a couple of rooms in this old building, but for just being a room, the place has a REALLY cool vibe. You can feel a strange energy in there. The studio is so cool that bands STILL record stuff there although all the old equipment has been replaced with digital stuff now. U2 even recorded "Rattle and Hum" here as well as some other great modern artists. Why wouldn't you want to record in the same studio where Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and many other greats got started. This is holy ground my friends!

  1. I need to get out more often. I love visting places like this. After turning my dining room into a recording studio there for a while, I have a lot of respect for the process and those that do it. It is fun but it takes a lot of work to get it right and get it done.
