Sun Studio Named Historic Landmark

An upholstery shop turned rock ‘n’ roll recording studio in Memphis, Tennessee, became a National Historic Landmark Thursday, one day after the death of the studio’s founder, Sam Phillips.

The building was the birthplace of Sun Records, one of the most famous recording labels in music history, linked to names such as Elvis Presley, B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins.

It is the first recording studio to be granted National Historic Landmark status.
