Take a trip to Memphis, where the spirit of Elvis Presley lives on. Many landmarks of Elvis’ Memphis have been lovingly preserved by his eternal fans, while others are now only distant memories.Filed under:
In the summer of 1953, 18-year-old Elvis Presley walked into Sun Studio with the cheap guitar his parents bought him from a hardware store for his 11th birthday. He paid about $4 to record 2 songs, excited to hear the sound of his own voice for the first time. Sun Studio’s owner, Sam Phillips, later paired Elvis with 2 local musicians to record his first single. An “x” now marks the spot on the floor where the King recorded his first record.
