Sad news, Scotty Moore has passed away aged 84.

I just a few moments ago read a comment about him on Facebook written by a guy called Mark Wilson (no relation to Yours Truly):
Met him once, and he autographed my Hofner Committee. I thanked him for inventing rockabilly and he said "It was no big deal". Very gentle and courteous.

  1. Rest in Peace Scotty Moore - you were there, and an intrical part of the legend that would be Elvis Presley. YOU became a legend. That early band lives in infamy. NOTHING else, ever again, will touch those moments. You live on Sir. Kudos. Music 2016

  2. RIP Scotty.
    A great guitar player. I have always absolutely loved the guitar on Hound dog. It's a great example of Less is more.
