Sun Stu­dio, in Mem­phis, is where Elvis Pres­ley was dis­cov­ered – and where Johnny Cash and B.B. King recorded. Learn about the ac­ci­den­tal pro­duc­tion tech­niques that helped de­velop the rock’n’roll sound ($12; www.sun­stu­dio.com). Tuff Gong, in Kingston, Ja­maica, was set up and used by Bob Mar­ley. Re­plete with many of his orig­i­nal in­stru­ments, it’s still a work­ing stu­dio and also houses a small vinyl fac­tory ($20; www.tuff­gong.com). Hansa Stu­dio, in Ber­lin, has hosted top artists in­clud­ing U2, R.E.M. and Depeche Mode, but it’s best known as the stu­dio where David Bowie recorded two of his Ber­lin Tril­ogy al­bums, Low and Heroes (from www.mu­sic­tours-ber­lin.com). The Mo­town Mu­seum, in Detroit, is the for­mer head­quar­ters of the leg­endary la­bel. The tour takes in Stu­dio A, once graced by the likes of Stevie Won­der and The Supremes, with in­stru­ments from the 1960s ($15; www.mo­town­mu­seum.org).
