Having A Good Old Sing Song Around the Piano
We were flicking through the TV channels for some idle thrills to ameliorate our post-World Cup ennui and came across the excellent Rich Hall's documentary about the South and its portrayal in popular culture and film. It was very good indeed, and worth digging round in iPlayer to find (BBC4). If it's there.
Anyway, he was talking about this photograph taken at Sam Phillips' Sun Studios.
"That's Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins, in the same room.
"Let me just say that again.
"That's Elvis Presley. Johnny Cash. Jerry Lee Lewis. And Carl Perkins. In the same room.
"If you're a student of theology, that's like having Jesus ... Buddha ... Mohammed and Carl Perkins in the same room."
