Music Diary – 27th December

Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 27th December!

Scotty Moore

Happy birthday to Mr. Winfield Scott „Scotty“ Moore III, who was born on the 27th December 1931 in Tennessee (USA)! Scotty became very well known as the guitarist for The King of Rock’n’Roll, Mr. Elvis Presley!


Moore’s first group was Doug Poindexter & the Starlite Wranglers, before he played his first Sun Studio sessions with Elvis Presley in 1954. His unique playing can be heard on classics like „Blue Suede Shoes„, „Heartbreak Hotel„, „Mystery Train„, „That’s All Right (Mama)„, „Hound Dog“ and „Jailhouse Rock„. When Moore’s solo album „The Guitar That Changed the World“ was released in 1964 on Epic Records, Sam Phillips from Sun Records was very upset and Scotty Moore was sacked. Scotty played his last show with Elvis on „Elvis NBC TV-Special“ in 1968, which is better known under the moniker „68 Comeback Special„.


After that, Moore continued playing and recording with several artists like Carl Perkins, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eric Clapton and Keith Richards. In 2000, Scotty Moore was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
