Scotty Moore, the legendary guitarist for Elvis Presley, has died in Tennessee at the age of 84.

Moore was the guitarist for Elvis Presley from 1954 and played on Elvis classics “That’s All Right”, “Good Rockin’ Tonight”, “Milk Cow Blues Boogie”, “Baby Let’s Play House”, “Heartbreak Hotel”, “Mystery Train”, “Blue Suede Shoes”, “Hound Dog”, “Too Much”, “Jailhouse Rock” and “Hard Headed Woman”.

Scotty also starred in four Elvis movies Loving You, Jailhouse Rock, King Creole and G.I. Blues.

In 1960 Moore took a job as production manager at Sam Phillips’ Sun Records and continued to work with Elvis on 60s hits “Good Luck Charm”, “(You’re The) Devil in Disguise” and “Bossa Nova Baby”.

Phillips fired Moore in 1964 and Scotty recorded a solo album ‘The Guitar That Changed The World’ before reuniting with Elvis for the ’68 Comeback Special’.

Scotty Moore played his last show in 2007 at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis.
