Blind Lemon Jefferson. That's B.B. King's idol, too. Yeah, I had one of his records, and I loaned it to B.B. King. He said he was gonna bring it back, and he ain't brought it back yet, and that's been 12 years ago - John Lee Hooker, from The Voice of the Blues

From BBC web site
"The Musicians Hall of Fame is the only museum in the world that honours the musicians who played on the greatest recordings of all time: the backroom boys who played with the all-time greats, but rarely get the credit.

The Museum is run by walking music encyclopaedia Joe Chambers, now in his mid-50s. He's a songwriter, performer and instrument dealer and became friends with a number of great musicians, like Elvis's guitarist James Burton, king of the twang Duane Eddy, and country legend Chet Atkins. It was their stories that gave him the idea to share with the public these remarkable insights into the people who gave the world such irreplaceable music.

Phill also meets Charlie McCoy, the man credited with bringing a young Bob Dylan to Nashville in the 1960s to record Blonde on Blonde, John Wesley Hardy and Nashville Skyline.

Phill finds himself in a huddle with guitar legends Duane Eddy and Elvis's guitar player for 14 years, Scotty Moore.

And at Brown's Diner, a chic and shabby restaurant, he shares lunch with singing country star Nancy Griffith, who reveals what makes Nashville tick for her and the way that music industry is changing. "
