 Gibson Backstage Pass - Memphis Soul Survivors, Soul Serenade
It’s a muggy Saturday night in Memphis, and Wild Bill is clanging the ride cymbal on the drum set in the corner of the cramped bar he named after himself.
As the jukebox blares a Marvin Sease tune, the members of the band amble over to their instruments and Wild Bill—a gaunt, unspeaking 80-year-old in a pale suit and fedora—takes his perch on a stool by the door to collect the cover charge.
The band is the Memphis Soul Survivors, and they are just that: unsung veterans of the Memphis rhythm and blues scene who have weathered losing streaks and changining trends to keep the music alive by playing for tips, night after night.

 Memphis
Attention might have been diverted from Memphis' fl music community with the rise of rockabilly, but RandB would reassert itself as the dominant musical force in the city in the 1960s, principally due to the success of Stax Records, which embodied the earthiest aspects of southern soul.
Stax's pre-emminence in the Memphis soul scene was not absolute; smaller labels in the region, particularly Goldwax, also made some notable contributions to the 1960s, although their exposure was primarily confined to the RandB market or, after the 1960s, specialist collectors.
Memphis looked set to reign as an RandB capital for a long time, yet by the end of the 1970s it commercial clout and influence was drastically diminished, due primarily to the tragic collapse of the Stax empire.*
