The king's platter is for sale. No, it's not a heapin' heppin' of fried catfish, it's the big guy's record player going up for bid in Cornwall (of course it's in Cornwall), UK. The Beeb is all over this and ran an article. Apparently the (American) King gave it to a German woman when he was staying up all night doing speed in the cold for the U.S. Army. She had helped Vernon with some translations. As you can see below, it's completely bad-ass in its own right. So get over there and buy the thing like you got sense. They think it will fetch £2000, which is like a trillion dollars.
Last week, we learned that Lafayette’s Music Hall will return to Overton Square. Loeb Properties has leased the site of the venerable showcase theater to Beale Street Blues Company. Lafayette’s was short lived but looms large in the mythology of Memphis music.
The club was something of an afterthought for Overton Square developers Ben Woodson, Charlie Hull, Buck Doggrell, Jimmy Robinson, and George Saig. The club was named for legendary bartender Lafayette Draper.
