photographer unknown, Scotty Moore and Elvis Presley
R.e. R.I.P. Scotty Moore, guitarist for Elvis Presley and for those wondering about the context of hearing this sort of music in a vacuum for the first time: I was just a wee tyke, but when my mother's maid found the one R&B radio station in our area that indeed played the then spankin' new Elvis' "Hound Dog" in complete R&B solidarity, that's when the Road To Ruin began instantaneously. Thought young HH "This is WAY better than Perry Como!"
