  • On a trip from New Orleans through the Mississippi Delta through Memphis to Chicago we followed the Blues and ended up Michigan on the really very good conclusion for the Willie Dixon Blues Heaven Foundation, 2120 Ave. In the two weeks before that we have many Blues museums, the Blues trail marker, visited Sun Studio, Stax Studios, music clubs, guitar shops etc. Much, especially in Clarksdale and Memphis very adorable presents, little disappointing. The former chess Studios belong to the top-three blues sites that you should visit on occasion from my point of view. There are plenty and the leadership to see including DVD with old was simply irresistible nice recordings and interviews and the personal reception very informative. Class!

  • As the son of noted chess drummer BILLIE STEPNEY this is by far the best kept srcret in the ciry! Tourist come from all over the world to make a pilgrimage to this music mecca.yet mist natives don't even know it's herešŸµ Why not invest $10 for the bestmusic history lesson you'll ever receive? BISHOP GREGORY K. STEPNEY SON OF FUTURE ROCK & ROLL INDUCTEE BILLIE STEPNEY DRUMMER P.S. LOOK HIM UP HE'S THE ONLY ONE OF HIS CONTEMPORARIES NOT IN. LETS MAKE IT RIGHT & PUSH TO GET HUM IN.
  • Willie Dixon rocks, who doesn't love a good facts filled adventure through the history of real music.
  • Great that they managed to hold on to the place, but it's a pretty half-hearted attempt at a museum. The video they make you watch is pretty hilarious.
