Sales Handle

      Media maven The Memphis Goons share a lifetime of hard-earned rockin’ noise experience and reveal the secrets to being youthful, spiritual, healthy and absolutely beautiful—both inside and out—as they embrace their senior years.  

About the Band

     The Memphis Goons came of age 10 years after the American garage-rock phenomenon and 20 years before grunge.  Recording between 1968 and 1974, The Memphis Goons were largely ignored by their fellow Memphis musicians, and likewise The Goons ignored their neighborly influences of the time—Elvis, Al Green, Alex Chilton.  They were indeed a clump of crabgrass sprouting in America’s rich musical soil.
