... Presley recorded "That's alright, Mama". Disc jockey Dewey Philips, who would smash records he didn't like, played this song 14 times in a row on his show. Aside from Elvis, almost every other significant rock and roll, rockabilly, blues and country star recorded at Sun. Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, BB King, Howling Wolf, Roy Orbison and Harmonica Frank passed through their doors.

The museum itself is not large, but that is ...

... for a 10-year lease and then moved to a larger location. The people who have had various businesses there since never actually changed the rooms, so it is still the original flooring (including crosses where the band members used to stand), roofing tiles, layout etc. It was pretty cool to imagine Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis etc recording and hanging out here.

We drove back to the hotel to park, then walked to the Rock and Soul Museum. It was ...

Day 16

We headed to Graceland this morning and spent a few hours there, that was pretty cool actually being in elvis Presley's house! And seeing his grave! After Graceland we went to this rock and soul museum, it was ok, kinda boring. There's ice everywhere, the roads and footpaths are so so slippery, and the forecast today is highs of 1 and lows of -7!!! After the museum we headed to this place called guss fried fried chicken and apparently it's world famous, it ...

    Disappointing Internet service

    The room was what you'd expect from a Motel 6 although there were some maintenance issues. For instance, there was no latch on the bathroom door and it wouldn't stay closed completely. My main complanint is that the Internet service, which costs about $3 extra, was terrible. It was too slow to watch video.
