September Daily Photos – Week Four

Goodbye September……..here are the last of the September Daily Photos….it will soon be apparent that I spent the last week in Memphis, TN:

PORTRAIT

On the wall in my hotel room at the Guest House at Graceland

LANDSCAPE

The Meditation Garden at Graceland….where Elvis, his parents, and other relatives are laid to rest.

ON MY DESK

Well, not “my” desk…..

This desk belonged to Marion Keisker, Sam Phillips’ assistant, who was responsible for the first recording of Elvis at Sun Studios on July 18, 1953.

ACHIEVEMENT

December 4, 1956 marked an important event in music history when a chance gathering of Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis resulted in a several hour impromptu jam session around this very piano in Sun Studios in Memphis, TN…..it became known as the Million Dollar Quartet.Sam Phillips recognized the significance of what was happening and turned on the recording equipment.

Lots of photos and stories from my trip to Memphis will post over the next couple of days……keep an eye out! It was an absolutely amazing adventure!!!
