Famous Neighbors

February 9, 2009

Al Green was pure gold on Sunday night, as the Memphis soul legend nabbed a pair of trophies at the 51st annual Grammy awards in Los Angeles.

But it was the performance of a Memphis duo — Green and one-time neighbor Justin Timberlake — that stole the show.

When I was a little boy, I learned a man named Al Green lived just down the road. Then I heard these songs like 'Let's Stay Together,' 'Love and Happiness,' 'Take Me to the River,'... and just like that, I learned everything I ever really needed to know about soul.
