Do The Funky Chicken

There are a few things that Memphis, Tennessee has in abundance. Recording studios would be one. Sun and Royal are still standing, but Stax was torn down in a blazing feat of historic ignorance. Realizing their civic mistake, they rebuilt the studio in the location. While not quite the same thing, it's a pretty lively museum that suffers from the usual read-a-sign, move-to-the-next problem. Worth a visit just to see the Rufus Thomas 'Funkiest Man Alive' sweatshirt on display.
