Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison soon followed. The Studio's cultural and musical impact still resonates across the world. John Lennon knelt and kissed the floor. Ringo called it rock's "Ground Zero."Bono said it "gave me a chill" to record for U2's Rattle & Hum album there. Today's artists are thrilled with the opportunity to record in this magical place.
