After our stay in what can only be described as a 'motel from hell' (complete with bloodstains on the carpet!) on 8 mile in Detroit, we made it to heaven in the form of Motown records.

Unfortunately the museum was closed but this didn't prevent the feeling of magic oozing from the studio that has produced some of the finest music the world has ever heard. This is where it all started, where Berry Gordy Jr. captured the spirit of the city through (now) household names such as Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye.

We then headed down to Woodlawn Cemetery to pay our respects to James Jamerson, Levi Stubbs and Erma Franklin. From there we headed downtown to sample gospel and jazz at the city's annual music festival and we're now currently sat in a hotel lobby waiting to speak with a couple of Motown legends.... will bring you more on this shortly.

Stay in touch.
