Our first night in Memphis was incredible...

What a great litle city - lively.

I am a music fan and so after some fantastic barbeque we went down to Beale Street. There must have been ten different live bands paying in the space of one block. And it was all electric blues.

Some bands were all black older guys, some were young white kids, many were a combination of both - but they were all good. Many had big horn sections and keyboards, but the guitar playing and singing stood out.

Our hotel is very nice - best first night out sleep I have had in years (I usually toss & turn), it is the Madison. We went to the Peabody to see the march of the ducks yesterday, close by.

I have to run, we hit Graceland in 90 minutes, more later, after the inaugural!
