On December 4, 1956, an auspicious twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis & Elvis Presley together. The place was Sun Record’s storefront studio in Memphis. The man who made it happen was Sam Phillips, the “Father of Rock & Roll,” who discovered them all. The four young musicians united for the only time in their careers for an impromptu recording that has come to be known as one of the greatest rock & roll jam sessions of all time.
