Soul Man

You would not expect to see a singer from Ireland featured in a museum honoring the accomplishments of American soul performers, would you? But yes, indeed, Bono is featured in one of the exhibits at the recently opened Stax Museum of American Soul Music in Memphis, Tennessee. The U2 soul man appears in a video in which he talks about Memphis being “the birthplace of both rock ‘n’ roll and soul music” and comments on the contributions of Sun Studios and Stax Records to the history of music.
