UK Telegraph journalist Mick Brown visited the Muscle Shoals area last week to interview music legends for a feature story to appear in the London based publication later this year. Welcoming Brown to the area was Alabama Tourism director Lee Sentell.
Brown interviewed Rick Hall of FAME Studios as well as Muscle Shoals “Swampers” David Hood, Jimmy Johnson and Rick Spooner for his feature that will be published to coincide with the documentary film Muscle Shoals release in United Kingdom theatres.
Sentell and Brown discussed the positive impact the article and film release will have on tourism in the area.
Brown visited historical sites including both locations of the Muscle Shoals Sound Studios, Helen Keller’s Birthplace and Home and the Frank Lloyd Wright Rosenbaum House Museum.
The Telegraph is one of the largest publications in the United Kingdom with daily printed circulation of more than a half million and digital readership of eight million a month. Brown has written across a wide variety of cultural subjects for the Telegraph, and is the author of six books, the most recent being Tearing Down The Wall of Sound: The Rise And Fall of Phil Spector.
