The song’s called Walking In Memphis, Duane! What WAS Sterling Void doing down in Tennessee last week – and did the trip go up in a puff of smoke?

All the way back in 1991, American singer-songwriter Marc Cohn released a song called “Walking In Memphis”. At the time, the success of the song was moderate. For example, the song never got higher than number 22 in the UK charts – the song did best in Canada and the Republic of Ireland, where it reached number 3 and number 7 respectively. Cher covered the song later in the decade, probably making it better known.

I have, of course, no idea whether Sterling Void has heard this song. What I do know is that having brought Sterling Covid’s first wave down after 32 years, his second wave is now underway.

Which brings me to the question of what exactly he was doing in Memphis last week. No one seems to know for sure. His rambling Facebook Live videos shed little insight on whether he was there for work or if it was just a holiday.

However, I did notice this in one video – notice the interesting looking green substance on the table?

Someone commenting on the original video most certainly did – saying “I seen that weed on the table”. Sterling’s response? He simply said it’s “not mine”. Quite whose it was remains a mystery.

Walking In Memphis? In Duane’s case, more like smoking in it…
