They say we're lazy men, drinking our white wine, we could go right insane, 'cause we can buy the time
While we were in Memphis, my friend David and I walked out to Sun Studios. It was kind of anti-climactic, but somewhat cool to think of all the music that came out of Sun that's not only important to me personally but also exerted a huge cultural influence. Elvis is still the king in Memphis, but my favorite Sun musician is probably The Silver Fox, Charlie Rich. Behind Closed Doors is a great album. The two buildings following the Sun photo are from West, TX. The car was in a neighborhood in Austin, the six was just down the road from Sun Studios in Memphis, and the last photo is from Gadsden, AL. Once again I didn't have any program to correct the contrast in the photos, so they're all slightly overexposed, I think--mainly the sky in the second/third shots.
