    King Of Sun (K O S)

    "KOS is the story of Sun Studios and its founder Sam Phillips. Sun was a very small recording studio founded in 1950 and closing in 1960. During this time it was responsible for discovering and launching the careers of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, BB King, Howling Wolfe, Ike Turner and many more. All this from a studio that only recorded in mono and that only had five microphones. We were fascinated in how the huge egos of the singers were managed in this confined environment. Research into Sun revealed a character unrecognized by the general public yet instrumental in the Sun story. Billy Lee Riley who played and backed all the major stars for Sun. Billy Lee was criminally neglected by Sam Phillips who did not want to lose his main studio man. He was recognized by those at Sun as the major talent who never made it big time at Sun yet he was as talented as any singer or musician to sing on the Sun label. Sam Phillips refused to ship Riley’s big record in order to ensure the success of Jerry Lee Lewis’s new record Great Balls of Fire.

    Billy Lee Riley’s story in intertwined with the stories of Elvis, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis. All being manipulated by Sam Phillips. However it is the story of Sun Records that is central to KOS. Set in the studio we trace the history of Sun the development of the music of the singers. All in all we see 23 songs helping to tell the story. Classic songs by Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Jerry lee Lewis.

    We hope that KOS will open up a new outlook on the lives of these rock legends. "

    Re: King Of Sun (K O S)

    Tickets to the “King of Sun”, the story of Sam Phillips, Sun Studio’s and the creation of Rock n Roll are selling fast. There are only a few ‘show only tickets’ left for the Saturday night and a few ‘dinner and show tickets’ left for the Sunday.
