Memphis Tennessee(population of 1,260,581) is the home of founders and establishers of various American music genres, including Blues, Gospel, Rock n' Roll, and "sharecropper" country music (in contrast to the "rhinestone" country sound of Nashville). Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and B. B. King were all getting their starts in Memphis in the 1950s. They are respectively dubbed the "King" of Country, Rock n' Roll, and Blues.

We were only in Memphis for 16 hours and it was overcast and rainy the whole time but we had FUN! These pics were taken thru the hotel window so some have a little glare.

Memphis was named after the former capitol of Egypt. Playing on that theme the the famous Pyramid:

I have a few photos of the Pyramid (somewhere) from our 2004 vacation- what an unusual place for this venue (but fitting, when you know the history of the city of Memphis).

If I can find them, I'll let you know where I uploaded them back then ;)
