Memphis Music Hall Of Fame Inaugural Inductions
It was a beautiful mingling of generations and genres, of songs, stories and memories, as the Memphis Music Hall of Fame's inaugural class was inducted during a ceremony Thursday night (November 29, 2012) at The Cannon Center for the Performing Arts.
Outside the theater, the children of Sun Records founder Sam Phillips and iconic radio deejay Dewey Phillips laughed together, and the sons of Otis Redding reminisced with their father's guitarist and songwriting partner, Steve Cropper. Others meeting for the first time, like ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill and Booker T. & the MG's rhythm man Lewie Steinberg, talked shop like old friends.
