    Scotty still does some touring. Also, every now and then, he and DJ Fontana play with Ronnie McDowell. Ronnie actually arranged for Scotty and DJ to be presented with new cars, since Elvis actually never gave them cars.

    Anyway, here's Scotty's site: http://www.scottymoore.net/index.html.

    I hope I get a chance to see Scotty play some day. What an experience that would be. It really was "the guitar that changed the world."

    Scotty's book, That's Alright, Elvis, is definitely recommended reading.

    I believe so, and read the book!

    Just kidding. Scotty wanted to and tried to get to Elvis after the special to work on some things they had discussed at that time, but I don't think his messages or calls ever got past the guys...if I recall correctly.
