Not only that Lukester. But back in the day when they would do 10-15 min. versions of Whole Lotta Love. Plant always seemed to throw in a few Elvis style lines. Also with The Honeydrippers,didn't he do a song that he sang like Elvis on?

"Is that you"

and The Killer were both having their hair done before a TV appearance....

Female hair-dresser says to Jerry Lee...

"Ooow Mr Lewis you smell nice, what do you have on?"

" We'll honey I got a hard-on but I didn't know you could smell it!!!"

Played on loads of early rock n roll hits including most of Ricky nelson's

he was Elvis' regular guitarist following his return to live performances in '69 until the end of his life.

keith didnt play the Orbison "Black & White Night" special, but they were both on that Gram Parsons Tribute 3 years ago. Funny thing is I met Burton a few months ago and got him to sign my DVD of it, and he looks at me and says "Did I play at that?" I points to a pic of him and said "yep..there you are" and he says "Oh yeah..I remember that. That was the one Keith Richards played at!" Obviously impressed!

He must be at least 70, but hes still a sensationally good guitarist. Makes everything look so effortless and still plays the guitar round the back of his head. An absolute gent, too.

Keith has stated his favorite guitar solo is Scotty Moore on "Mystery Train." He also names CB's "Little Queenie" as another favorite in the same interview.
