If it’s hot it’ll sell

?????????????????????????

The title for this post comes from a song I heard performed on NPR by a band called Mutts. The title of the song is also the main hook, and it seems like a reasonable enough proposition: People will buy something that’s hot.

And the musical Million Dollar Quartet is the hottest thing I’ve seen on stage in a long time. It tells a story around the real-life meeting of Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, and Carl Perkins in Memphis’ Sun Records studio in December of 1956. Having visited Sun Records earlier this month, I felt like this was a glimpse into what happened there. And the role of Sam Phillips in launching these musicians’ careers–and rock and roll itself–was made crystal clear.

Anyone who loves rock and roll, as I do, really should see this show. And no, I’m not getting paid by anyone to say that. It’s just a rockin’ good time, and I hope nobody misses out on it.
