In 1953, an 18-year-old kid walked into Sun studio to cut a record and was asked what kind of singer he was. "I sing all kinds," the young Elvis Presley said. Elvis made the claim fact en route to the throne, and his declaration of principles might as well be his city's cultural mantra. This is the inspiration we take for Sing All Kinds, the Memphis Flyer's new pop culture blog, coming soon to a computer screen near you. Brought to you by the same talented staff that delivers the best entertainment writing in the city in each week's Flyer, Sing All Kinds will be a daily dose of news and commentary on local and national music, film, TV, comic books, celebrity news, popular Internet, video games basically everything that's anything in popular culture. With a perspective that's as authentically Memphis as it gets, Sing All Kinds is pop culture with a side of barbecue sauce.
