Scotty Moore
R539 Discovery Miles 5 390 Out of stock

Memoir of Scotty Moore, Elvis Presley's first guitarist and manager. When Elvis Presley first showed up at Sam Phillip's Memphis-based Sun Records studio, he was a shy teenager in search of a sound. Sam asked guitarist Scotty and bass player Bill Black to work with Elvis--and the music they created as the Blue Moon Boys launched what became known as rock 'n' roll. Scotty and Bill toured with the young singer, and played on all of his Sun sessions and his first recordings for RCA; Scotty also served as Elvis's manager. With Bill Black and Elvis both gone, Scotty is the only remaining member of the original trio who can tell the true story of how Elvis transformed popular music--and how Scotty created the guitar sound that has become the prototype for all rock guitar that followed, prompting Rolling Stone guitarist Keith Richards to proclaim, "Everyone else wanted to be Elvis--I wanted to be Scotty." For all fans of Elvis Presley and his music--and for all lovers of rock 'n' roll--this is a compelling story. Scotty Moore is a guitarist, recording engineer and record producer. This was his first book with James L. Dickerson. He passed away in 2016 at his home in Nashville, Tennessee. James L. Dickerson is an award-winning writer and journalist, author of the music histories "Mojo Triangle" and "Memphis Going Down." Memoir of Scotty Moore, Elvis Presley's first guitarist and manager.

When Elvis Presley first showed up at Sam Phillips's Memphis-based Sun Records studio, he was a shy teenager in search of a sound. Phillips invited a local guitarist named Scotty Moore to stand in. Scotty listened carefully to the young singer and immediately realized that Elvis had something special. Along with bass player Bill Black, the trio recorded an old blues number called "That's All Right, Mama." It turned out to be Elvis's first single and the defining record of his early style, with a trilling guitar hook that swirled country and blues together and minted a sound with unforgettable appeal. Its success launched a whirlwind of touring, radio appearances, and Elvis's first break into movies. Scotty was there every step of the way as both guitarist and manager, until Elvis's new manager, Colonel Tom Parker, pushed him out. Scotty and Elvis would not perform together again until the classic 1968 "comeback" television special. Scotty never saw Elvis after that.

With both Bill Black and Elvis gone, Scotty Moore is the only one left to tell the story of how Elvis and Scotty transformed popular music and how Scotty created the sound that became a prototype for so many rock guitarists to follow. Thoroughly updated, this edition delivers guitarist Scotty Moore's story as never before
