Do Scotty Moore and James Burton get along?

Sun Jun 27, 2010 10:04 pm

Hello,

Do Scotty Moore and James Burton get along? Does Scotty hold any animosity towards James to this day for taking the lead guitar position in Elvis band from 1969 onwards? I may be wrong, but it seems to me that they both run in different circles. Anybody know of any photos of the two of them together? I think it would be pretty cool if they could come together in the studio and create an album project. If they wanted to, they could incorporate other guitarists that worked with Elvis such as Chip Young, Tommy Tedesco, Reggie Young, etc. and also incorporate both D.J. Fontana and Ronnie Tutt. I know Elvis The Concert has brought some of these musicians together but I would love to see them create something together in the studio.
I'd also be curious as to what James thoughts are on Scotty and vice-versa.

Daryl

what is interesting about SM is that he didn't always play with a plectrum ( in the 50's)
( in the last 2 decades, it's often the plectrum stuck to his thumb )

It's a thumb pick and manicured nails, fairly common. He and James get along fine and to my knowledge always have. They've known each other since the early days and Scotty refused the gig before James was brought on. If anything he was miffed at the organization at the time after finding out what they paid the band later. James plays with a flat pick in addition to a metal finger pick.

The album that Scotty did with Carl Perkins in 1992 was a treat, would be nice to hear he and James pick a few tunes together, too.

James likes Scotty Moore and he told me that 2 weeks ago when we were talking about Elvis in the 50's.

I just can't remember if he mentioned meeting Scotty too often. Due to his work travelling to so many countries, it is safe to assume they hardly see each other, at least in the last years.

we had a thread about it here about 2 years (?) ago.
elvisjock may have been the one, who uploaded it on youtube (not sure, if i remember right).
i think it was in the "off topic"-section.
just search for it!

I bought that "In the Beginning" - the Beatles featuring Tony Sheridan album decades ago. My mom thought Tony sounded a little like Elvis.
