Yesterday, we posted about the passing of Roe Erister ‘Rick’ Hall at the age of 85. Rick opened the FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL and recorded some of the greatest music ever made.
To help you understand what went on there, we will try to do it in 3 photos. The first photo shows Little Richard, legendary producer Bumps Blackwell and Rick Hall. (This photo was sent to us by Bumps Blackwell’s daughter). The second photo shows Rick Hall with one of his studio musicians, Duane Allman. The last photo shows Rick with Wilson Pickett.
He was that good and that respected. You have heard so much music that Rick helped make.
(A little side note. Before joining Styx, Tommy Shaw was in a band called MS Funk. The MS stood for Muscle Shoals. Tommy is from Alabama.)
RIP Rick. Thank You on so many levels.
