Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation

Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation Review

A cadre of music legends, including Etta James, Bo Diddley, Aretha Franklin, Koko Taylor, and John Lee Hooker, recorded here in the former Chess Records building. Guides regale visitors with tales of the famous stars, and you can check out the old recording studios, office, rehearsal rooms, and memorabilia. Call ahead.

    Thanks. Read more
