Onion AV Club tours Sun Studio in Memphis

The Onion AV Club's "Pop Pilgrims" travel show stopped in Memphis for a peek inside Sun Studio. Tour guide Cora Pitt shows host Dan Telfer such notable sights as the Shure microphone used by Elvis ("We let people lick and kiss the thing if they really want to," she says), a piano key with a burn mark left by Jerry Lee Lewis' cigar, and the drumset used by U2's Larry Mullen in 1987 for the band's "Rattle and Hum" sessions. Goner Records founder Eric Friedl also appears to talk about his favorite Sun tracks.
