Elvis Playing Instruments - 1970's Shows
I have read many different accounts to this little quirk, so I am going to ask it here in order to get some thoughts on it.
Why didn't Elvis play more instruments in concert during the 1970's? From recordings I have heard, and from written accounts, he was a good musician and was known to have played not only guitar, but piano and drums. Of course everyone is aware of the few occasions he'd play a few bars of 2-3 songs on his acoustic guitar from 1976-1977, and when he'd play piano on Unchained Melody and a few other songs.
However, my question is this, do you think had Elvis been more involved in playing more instruments during his shows that he would have taken an even greater interest in his work?
Elvis always unplugged..never ELECTRIC guitar..why?
Why didn't Elvis ever strap on an electric guitar 71-77??????
Can you imagine Indy '77...Elvis playing ELECTRIC guitar singing "Baby What you Want me to Do" ...on his stool???
