Scotty Moore og Keith Richards

29. december 2021
“Scotty Moore was my hero. There’s a little jazz in his playing, some great country licks and a grounding in the blues as well. It’s never been duplicated. I can’t copy it. The closest I came was tracks like “Parachute Woman,” where I fooled around with echoes – those early Elvis recordings got me interested in the possibility of the studio. The first one I got had some of the Sun stuff:
“Baby Let’s Play House,” “Milkcow Blues Boogie.” But “Mystery Train” is the apex. It’s just Bill Black on bass, Elvis on acoustic, and Scotty. No drums. And it’s just the most amazingly huge sound. There’s a run-down that Scotty does on several cuts, like “I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone,” which I’ve never figured out. When I’d ask Scotty, he’d just give me a sly grin.
Scotty Moore, Dec.27, 1932. We miss you!

Christopher Sandfords bog om Rolling Stones bliver ved med at spøge i mit hovede. Især hans beksrivelse af Keith Richards insisteren på gruppens udgangspunkt i R&B og tidlig rock’n roll. Her fortæller han selv om den inspiration og gåde, som Elvis Presleys guitarist i de unge år, Scotty Moore, var.
