Road Trip – Day Twenty-Four – Stax Records

Image hosted by

At Sun Studios I was informed that the Stax museum was already closed

at that point int the day. I was also given directions which I promptly

forgot. I decided I had to try anyway since I am a huge fan of Stax

artists like Steve Cropper, Sam and Dave, Otis Redding, Al Green, etc,


After a bit of driving around I finally found it. I was really

surprised to find sucha big and recently built museum. It looks really

fantastic even though it is is a pretty rough neighborhood. Memphis had

some ghettos that make Detroit look good.

It really looks like a nice place. I was dissapointed we missed it. I

guess everyone gets out of there before the sun goes down. I should

have planned our visit out. I will have to come back another time.
