Next Wednesday I am heading down to Memphis and Nashville to go on a week-long musical pilgrimage. Sun Studio, Stax Musuem, Beale Street, Graceland, Ryman Auditorium, blues and country bars. I'm really looking forward to it. If anyone has been in those two cities and has recommendations for food and bars, hit me up. I'm not looking for the touristy places, but places the locals like to go to. Definitely Memphis bbq and Nashville hot chicken will be on the list.
Have you ever gone on a musical pilgrimage? Doesn't have to be a week long sojourn. Perhaps you went to the Surf Ballroom when passing through Clear Lake. Or went to Paisley Park. Maybe you checked out the Let it Be house in SW Minneapolis or walked across the street on Abbey Road in London. What was it like?
This is not a great clip of these wild, wild Nashville dudes. I saw them open for Jeff The Brotherhood last night, and was absolutely blown away. Their initial CD, Can I Live is out, and dirt cheap (and available on the new fad-tech cassette tape format). Support these guys, and if they're in town near you go and see them. Oh, and they're offering a free download at their band camp page.

One week ago today I was in Nashville, Music City USA, staying right across the street from the Ryman Auditorium. That night, while I was drinking with clients, the Queen of Soul was inside the Mother Church of Country Music doing her thing. Sometimes you can be that close to something and still be so far away from it.
Here's Aretha live in Amsterdam in 1968. Because taking care of business is really this man's game.
