2016 just took another rock n’ roll legend. Scotty Moore who is most famous as the guitar player for Elvis Presley has just passed away. Scotty Moore was the guitar player for many of Elvis’s most famous songs such as “Hound Dog”, “Jailhouse Rock”, “Heartbreak Hotel”, “Mystery Train”, “Blue Suede Shoes” and many others. It was Scotty’s guitar playing that made Elvis so big and famous.
Like most, I was a huge fan of the Elvis and Scotty Moore stuff myself. This is a sad loss for rock music for sure. Scotty was a genius guitar player. Scotty never gave up guitar playing. He loved what he did.
