Jerry Lee Lewis’s Ranch 3.30.10

I drove a half hour to Nesbit, Mississippi to see where Jerry Lee Lewis lives. It was really cool. He has this big house on this nice ranch with piano gates. I couldn’t see the swimming pool from the road though. I drove by the house about 6 times trying to get pictures and video. A white [continue reading]

Rockabilly Hall of Fame 3.23.10

I finally made it to the Rockabilly Hall of Fame! I have wanted to visit there since 2002. I made the hour trip east on route 40 to Jackson, TN. The Rockabilly Hall of Fame was small, just 3 rooms, but had a lot of memorbilia. And Bernice couldn’t have been nicer. I was the only patron [continue reading]

I celebrated Mardi Gras by attending the Grizzlies game and then onto Beale Street. I was going to go to the parade, but it was too cold. The Grizzlies game was terrible. We lost to the Suns. But Beale Street was great. I went to the Blues Hall Juke Joint and listened to Brandon Santini and Delta [continue reading]

The Jersey Boys 2.11.10

Today I went to the Orpheum Theatre to see the matinee of The Jersey Boys. It was fantastic! Part play, part concert. I had no idea Joe Pesci introduced the Four Seasons. And I had no idea that Can’t Take My Eyes off of You was a Frankie Valli song. I know it by Bobby Darin, but I love that [continue reading]

Rock n Soul Museum 2.1.10

February 1, 2010 I toured the Rock N Soul Museum before the Grizzlies-Lakers game tonight, which they won! I have been to the Rock n Soul Museum before, but it has been a few years. It was smaller than I thought, but I really liked it and appreciated it more now because I like more Memphis music [continue reading]
