Rock Legends Honor Elvis at Abbey Road - Now on DVD

- Press Release

In July 1954 in Memphis, Tennessee, guitarist Scotty Moore walked into the famed Sun Records studio with ELVIS to create what is now known as Rock and Roll. Elvis Presley, bass player Bill Black, and Producer/Sun Records Owner Sam Philips have all passed on, leaving Scotty to keep the music alive and to tell his story.

50 years later, in a year which will see more celebrations to mark the
50th Anniversary of Rock 'n' Roll, that music milestone should celebrate its
immortality. Scotty re-created an unplugged session that Elvis decided to do
in Europe after his famous TV comeback special. As we all now this dream was
not to be.

December 2004 and London's famous Abbey Road Studios plays host to a
stellar line-up of today's legendary rocking legends, for a very special
one-off tribute concert for Scotty Moore in honour of The King of Rock'n'Roll.

While Eric Clapton rocked That's All Right Mama with Scotty, Mark
Knopfler of Dire Straits invited Scotty for Blue Moon. Scotty's favorite Elvis
tune was sung by David Gilmour when he did his Pink Floydized version of
Don't. Rolling Stones past and present Bill Wyman And Ronnie Wood, Steve
Gibbons, Mark Taylor, Albert Lee, Fairport Convention and many more agreed,
Scotty Moore's guitar truly rocked the world.

Over two dozen Presley classics including 'Heartbreak Hotel', 'Shake,
Rattle And Roll', 'All Shook Up' and 'Blue Suede Shoes' are captured in
stunning HD for a TV music special and a DVD/CD release. Interviews with
Scotty, Jerry Schilling, and the artists provide an outstanding documentary of
music history: Bill Wyman talks about why the Rolling Stones decided not to
go to Graceland to meet Elvis. Clapton explains how playing with Scotty Moore
for the tribute was really a strange experience that gave him goose bumps.

This musical present to a worldwide and ageless fan community releases
unknown secrets about the early days of Elvis and it highlights the important
role his first guitarist and life-long friend Scotty Moore has for the world
of Rock'n'Roll.
