11/13 – On Sunday, November 13, GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi will screen the documentary about the legendary Funk Brothers, Standing in the Shadows of Motown. Following the screening, there will be a moderated conversation with Rose Willis, the wife of late Funk Brothers guitarist and Mississippi native Eddie Willis. The Funk Brothers are the unheralded studio musicians who had more No. 1 hits than the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys and Elvis Presley combined and are very likely the most influential and accomplished group of anonymous musicians in pop history.
