Memphis Music Note

FACT: Approximately half of the members of the rock and roll Hall of Fame hail from within a 100-mile radius of Memphis. The location of the rock and roll Hall of Fame -- -- Cleveland, Ohio. Not exactly a haven for rock and blues. Go figure.

As best I remember, a Cleveland DJ coined the phrase 'rock and roll.' I don't know what other claim Cleveland has to the beginning of rock and roll. Most folks agree that the first rock and roll record was 'Rocket 88" recorded at Sun studios in Memphis.
