Very nice job with the online version.

Some thoughts:

It looks like "Mr. Memphis" reads FECC, judging by his very familiar writing on the 1961 Hawaii show.

It's a little surprising to learn Joe Guercio Orchestra member Marty Harrell is an "EPE-party line" kind of guy. It means we get absolutely no insight into his eight years on stage with Elvis (1969-1977) in the interview posted. Some of the things he says seem dubious, like "I never heard him sing a note out of tune or out of place at all" or his belief that "Aloha" was "the best performance he ever gave." Really?

Also, when asked about musicians from 1969-1977, he makes no mention of Larry Muhoberac, Bob Lanning, the Imperials, Voice, Shane Keister, Larrie Londin, Tony Brown or Bobby Ogdin. The Imperials were there for over two years.

Also, the Sweet Inspirations were not from Motown as Harrell claims, and had no association with Berry Gordy or Detroit. They formed in New York and primarily made records for the Atlantic label, including their biggest hit, 1968's "Sweet Inspiration." How can someone work with the Sweets for eight years and make this kind of mistake?

The chat with songwriter Jerry Chestnut is enjoyable. You get a sense of the Kentucky native being his own guy, and not entirely bowled over by his Elvis connection. His meeting Elvis in December 1973, at a midnight movie screening of "Charlie Varrick," is understated, and Elvis (as usual) is gracious saying hello to him. Lamar Fike was the Memphis Mafian who set it up, after getting Jerry's "It's Midnight" into one of the Stax sessions that month. How amusing that Fike apparently lost the lyric sheet, and had to call Chestnut on the phone and transcribe them, while Elvis and the band were in the midst of taping the song!

Thanks again for the link.

Mary as far as I know hasn't been well recently and her website appears to be down, but you never know.
Had my good friend Joe (krein) Interview Sam Thompson last week was pretty cool(will be included soon) as well as Paul Evan(Singer-songwriter) also Dicky Lee was fun in hearing his time with Elvis. Joe Carrys out some great interviews. :-)

I realize he's been interviewed before, but I would love to see an interview with Ronnie Tutt.

I know he's already been asked about many things during his time with Elvis, so maybe it could be a focused interview in regards to a particular recording session, or a particular concert tour. What would also be great, would be to ask him about the various drum kits and hardware he used with the TCB band. As a drummer myself, this would be particularly interesting to read.

It'd also be interesting to read his thoughts on the "Prince From Another Planet" box set, and the footage on the DVD. And his awareness of the FTD label and if he owns any.

Well someone does. His Hawaii concert CD review offers some comments almost verbatim from a certain FECC topic. ;-)

No one has ever asked Ron about his thoughts on Bob Lanning, who took over the drums from January-March 1970, Jerome Munroe, who filled in for Ronnie at least three times (1971, 1975, 1977) or Larrie Londin, who played the entire March 1976 tour after Tutt quit the band, and the final two 1977 shows, when Ron had to exit the tour.

It would be interesting to learn his feelings on these guys, and why he quit in 1976 (and came back a month later).

Tutt also played quite a bit with Jerry Garcia in 1976-1978. Did the Grateful Dead guitarist ever ask about Elvis? What might he have said?

Lots of possibilities here!

Of course some people do, thats why i posted this topic on this site :D Mr Memphis does not have access to the internet, any copy of the online magazine is printed and given to him. Regarding similar comments on the article in question, believe it or not, they may share the same idea regarding such events. can you show me the article in question on this site? Il have a look at both :-) iv tried to find it.
