questions about Chet Atkins & EP

hello all

i got questions about guitar legend chet atkins and EP

first of all
did they get along ?

According to http://www.docsnews.com/music_chetatkins.html
It was because of Atkins’ urging that RCA purchased Elvis Presley’s contract from Sun Records, right or wrong ?

CA is given credit for turning RCA Victor into a recording industry colossus, are you agree ?

i vaguely remember a fan telling me that C A felt asleep during one of elvis' recording sessions, right or wrong ?

Alot of poeple have taken claim for Elvis going to RCA - Hank Snow included.

Chet did once make a hindsight comment about Elvis' smelly feet when he tooks his shoes off one time in the studio.

They must've gotten along as people because Chet worked with Elvis on more than just one session.

I read somewhere recently that Elvis never liked Chet, due to some early incident. Can't think where I read it now, but it was recently. Maybe I'll remember tomorrow when more awake :)
