Chips Moman (1937-2016)

Lincoln Wayne “Chips” Moman co-wrote (with Dan Penn) “The Dark End of the Street” . . .

. . . and “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man”:

He also co-founded (with Don Crews) American Sound Studios, where over 100 hits were recorded by Joe Tex, The Box Tops (featuring a very young Alex Chilton), Neil Diamond and many others.

Dusty Springfield’s classic Dusty in Memphis album was recorded there, as was Elvis Presely’s “comeback” album, From Elvis in Memphis, along with the single “Suspicious Minds,” both co-produced by Moman (with Felton Jarvis):
