Sam Phillips, RIP

Greetings loyal minions. It seems as though your Maximum Leader is becoming nothing more than a relayer of news that one most probably has read elsewhere. He promises that he will write more of substance very soon.

Today he wants to pass along news of the death of Sam Phillips, the founder of Sun Records. It was at Sam Phillips’ Sun Studios in Memphis, TN that Elvis recorded his first record (one for his mother’s birthday). By a stroke of luck, Sam’s secretary remembered Elvis a few months later when Sam wanted to make a record that would be commercially successful. Sam worked with Elvis and they recorded “That’s all right Momma.” That record became an instant hit in Memphis and across the south, and launched Elvis’ career. In a way, Sam was the midwife to Rock and Roll. May he rest in peace.

Carry on.
