Format: Paperback
Scotty Moore is one of the unsung heroes of rock 'n roll and his writing style reflects his playing style- simple, precise and to the point. In a humble, matter-of-fact style, guitarist Moore recounts his experiences with the King in an eminently readable and interesting way. I have read many Elvis books and this is one of my favorites. After reading it, you just wished you could bump into Scotty sometime, buy him a beer and talk the night away.

Format: Paperback
Scotty Moore, Bill Black, DJ Fontana and Elvis Presley - they were never acknowledged as the first Rock n Roll band but that is what they were - they were the first to play music using the format of rock we know today ie drums, rhythm, bass and electric guitar. And they made magic together. This book is an honest potrayal by Scotty of the beginnings of rock n roll and is told in an humble, unassuming manner. I really wish as I think most music lovers do - that Elvis had regrouped with these guys from time to time - not only for the fantastic music that would have evolved from such a meeting but also because they would have given him encouragment and inspiration when he needed it most - I loved this book as Scotty takes us through those Elvis days with Elvis and I would love Scotty to do a follow up with more of the personal touch that give us an insight into who Elvis really was - it is only through books by DJ,Scotty and a select few others that we really get the truth about Elvis the man. A note for Scotty if he should ever read this review - thank you for the music Scotty - we owe you a great debt.

Scotty Moore is a guitar legend and this book tells the humble beginnings of the man and 1st manager of Elvis.

It is well written and gives you a insight into how Rn'R emerged and how often people were ripped off especially by the Colonel.

Sad that he earned rather little from Elvis and how he survived to tell this tale.Very humble in his tale(no bragging)and no bitterness.Hence the title,'Thats alright,Elvis.'

Very good read and will read again at a latter date.5stars

Great book from Scotty's point of view. The boys had a tough deal, but Scotty never once calls Elvis. Great reading for fans
