How Recording Studios Work Legendary recording artist Elvis Presley recorded in Memphis' Sun Studios. Phantom City Studio Orlando Florida recording studios. In 1953, a skinny 18-year-old with slicked-back hair walked into Memphis Recording Service. He wanted to make a personal recording and was looking for owner Sam Phillips. Since Phillips wasn't in, the teen talked to secretary Marion Kiesker. When she asked what style of music he played, he responded, "I don't sound like nobody." Although few people ever heard that first $4 recording, Elvis Presley turned his personal style into worldwide fame with the help of Sam Phillips and that recording studio, which became the legendary Sun Studio. The studio was also home to Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and B.B. King [source: Rockabilly Hall of Fame]. Sun Studio may be what comes to mind when you think of recording studios, or the Beatles' Abbey Road in London -- or maybe even Chess Records in Chicago where artists such as Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, ...
I would look up to Buddy Holly, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Dion, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, and of course the early Beatles.
Today's Rant: The Beatles, The question that no panel of Talking Heads are asking is why? Up to that point in pop music history English acts had very little, if any success, in America. At the same time, American acts such as R&B legends as Robert Johnson, Howlin Wolf, and Muddy Waters were being worshipped by the likes of Lennon, McCartney, Jagger and Clapton. So why would these lads from Liverpool take the world by storm and particularly American teenagers like me? The short answer is "Rockabilly" music. Almost all early rockers were from the Southern United States, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison were from Texas, so other than the acts out of Philly and the East Coast, the founders of early Rock n roll such as Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis were very much from the south, and most from the deep south. You can add Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash to that list. The "hillbilly" influence in early rock was very hard to listen to, if you were from Chicago or Detroit, it just sounded stupid an ...

June 28th, 2013 Ask any successful band or performer how they got their start or what influenced a change in their musical direction and they're sure to credit some other band or artist. The influence musicians have on one another is openly recognized and celebrated for the innovations it inspires. No musician creates in a vacuum. Be it consciously or not, we are all part of a network of influences. A musical chain, if you will. A family tree. Take The Beatles, for instance. They were strongly influenced by Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison who, respectively, were influenced by Elvis Presley, The Clovers, Hank Williams, and Hank Ballard. Black Sabbath name Cream as an influence who give a nod to The Yardbirds who cite the music of John Lee Hooker who names Son House who acknowledges Furry Lewis, driving Sabbath's musical roots some five levels deep. Even the great Chuck Berry, who seemingly invented a whole new approach to playing the guitar, readily cites T-Bone Walker as his prime inspirat ...

Bill Tillman, a former member of Blood, Sweat and Tears and session musician who recorded with Roy Orbison and played with Chuck Berry, has died at age 65.
Early Beatles here, from March 1962, on the BBC. I've always liked the quaint phrasing--"John Lennon takes the vocal lead." And that he does. It's remarkable how assured they sound here, covering songs by Chuck Berry, Roy Orbison, and the Marvelettes. The singing is so accomplished. Listen to the total poise and confidence in Lennon's voice when he enters at :17. This is a Chuck Berry number we're talking about, and these English white kids out r'n'b one of rock's classic r'n'b men. To give you an idea of how early this is, "Love Me Do" wouldn't come out until October '62; the band's debut, Please Please Me, wouldn't be recorded until February '63. Good stuff. The BBC recordings will play a significant role in this Beatles book I'm looking to do. What a repository. There are some days that, were I given the choice to have only the Beatles BBC recordings exist in the world, or the studio LPs, I'd wave goodbye to the latter. You cannot know the Beatles until you have immersed yourself in the work they did f ...
