Rick Hall of Muscle Shoals & FAME Recording Studio Died Yesterday at 85 years of age! Nearly 4 years ago, Susan & I took a trip to northern Alabama (Florence on the Tennessee River, Muscle Shoals on the other side) and Nashville (my travelogue HERE - we visited the famous FAME Studios founded by Rick Hall (short bio first quote below - check link for more) - the tour of the studio was excellent (the other members in the group were a father and 2 sons from Germany). A few pics below; also, check and expand the second quote copied from my travelogue. Finally, if interested in this American period of music the documentary on Muscle Shoals is worth watching and highly recommended (own the blu-ray disc). Dave .
