Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Scotty Moore, who backed up Elvis Presley on guitar during the earliest part of the King's career, has died at the age of eighty-four.
Moore's lead guitar and Bill Black's bass (with D.J. Fontana on drums after a bit) were a perfect match for the young Presley's vocals. Beginning with That's All Right, Scotty Moore helped to create the rockabilly sound. (I'm over-simplifying a bit, as true music historians know, but so be it.)
(Those interested in Presley at the beginning of his career should pick up The Sun Sessions on RCA Records.)
