Memphis really is the greatest music city in the world. The music that has come out of Memphis has truly changed the world. From the blues music coming north out of the Mississippi Delta and the birth of rock and roll to the sweet soul sounds of Stax and Hi, that Memphis sound is something that gets inside you. I want to give credit where credit is due and I think Memphis deserves its own page.
