Am rather wet and a little bit tipsy.

First night in Beale Street was cool. Had dinner at B.B. King's and listened to two bands (and ended up on stage with the first one, don't ask), the first played all kinds of covers and the second classic Rythmn&Blues, Soul and Funk, all very good and worth the $5 cover. I then moved on to the Rum Boogie Cafe where "Blues Healer" played dirty Memphis/Texas/Chicago Blues. Had a really nice chat with the drummer when they had a break. We were just chatting about music and then he basically told me his life story. Really nice guy. I was also in the place next door (with an connecting door between the two) where Dr. "Feelgood" Potts played classic Howlin' Wolf/John Lee Hooker style Blues.
Felt a bit unsafe on my walk back so will probably take a cab tomorrow. It was only a 15 minute walk so shouldn't be too expensive.

More exploring tomorrow, Stax Museum, Rock and Soul Museum, maybe Graceland although I'm considering doing Graceland on my way to Birmingham on Wednesday as I'm going South, anyway.
