"It was the birthplace of rock 'n' roll and it changed America forever". Will Donnelly cruises dive bars, juke joints and Elvis' Jungle Room… and finds the beat goes on in Memphis!

Memphis Blues - The Sunday Times Travel Magazine

There's a great piece on Memphis in November's issue of The Sunday Times Travel Magazine written by Will Donnelly, a 9-page full colour article with photography by Jen Judge, a selection of which can be seen on Pinterest.

Will tells the story behind Memphis, where the blues came from and where rock'n'roll was born, as well as getting a guided tour in a classic '55 Cadillac to some of the neighbourhood clubs. Rum Boogie Cafe, Wild Bill's and Levitt Shell are some of the places featured in Where to Catch the Music with the Peabody Hotel and Sleep Inn at Court Square in Where to Stay.

I urge you to get it at your nearest newsagents now – it will make you want to go or bring back happy memories if you've been already!
