The Rolling Stones and Bono Celebrate 'Muscle Shoals' - Premiere
January 15, 2013 9:00 AM
The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon and Wilson Pickett are just a few of the artists who traveled to Muscle Shoals, Alabama, during the 1960s and early 1970s to record. In that small town, a handful of studios were changing the sound of soul and rock & roll. Now you can check out the trailer for the new documentary Muscle Shoals, from director Greg "Freddy" Camalier, which is set to premiere this year at Sundance.
Filled with interviews with a wide array of artists and never-before-seen footage, Muscle Shoals tells the story of this Northern Alabama town and the many hits that came out of its legendary recording spaces: Rick Hall's FAME Studios and Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, which was started by FAME's former rhythm section, the Swampers. "Being there does inspire you to do it slightly differently," says Mick Jagger in the trailer. "It was really funky; you know, that was the whole idea of it."

|Great video clip in the article! Look for images of folks like Duane, Eddie Hinton, Johnny Sandlin and others (not to mention Aretha, Paul Simon, the Staples and others).|
FYI - some of the folks in the movie WILL be playing at Scott Boyer's benefit gig up there in the Shoals area this Thursday! Kelvin Holley - one of the baddest ass pickers you'll ever see will be there.
I'm hoping the inclement weather that i expected won't keep folks (me!) from showing!
The movie looks like a home run!
Music is love, and love is music, if you know what I mean.
People who believe in music are the happiest people I've ever seen.
Bill Ector, Randy Stephens, Dan Hills and a guy named BobO who I never met - Forever in my heart!
