Thank you to Phil over at jungleroom.com for the nice mention of Plunk Chronicles. He even mentioned Mike’s European tour in June with guitar hero James Burton.
Jungle Room is a website all about Memphis music and musicians, so you might want to give it a try at http://www.jungleroom.com/. Mike always reads about people he knows over there.
And the name – Jungle Room – is just perfect. For the only two or three of you who might not know, Elvis’ – shall we call it “play room”? – at Graceland was called the jungle room due to the motif. There was a lot of green shag carpet and, I believe, an indoor waterfall.
The room was commemorated in the line: “there’s a pretty little thing waiting for the King down in the jungle room” in Marc Cohn’s great song, Walking in Memphis. You can hear it on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrT0gAbRqyw
