After being taken into hospital last December for brain surgery Scotty Moore got back to playing his gigs on a UK tour in February. The above picture was taken in Manchester on February 28 and shows him in really good spirits.

We met Scotty Moore backstage after the show in Dublin. What a gentleman-lovely to talk to and very accomodating. We took photos and he told us of his pleasure in Visiting Ireland. It was a great show. Maureen my wife was dreading it-she dislikes very loud music. But she thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful show. The previous writer shows little compassion for the legendary guitarist! Scotty did his best considering all he has been through. The band was excellent too, Liam Grundy's "Western Union" CD is a must buy for Elvis fans.

I must have been at a different Queen Elizabeth's Hall on Wednesday 10th June 2004, whatching a different Scotty Moore & Grundy Pritchard Band than the one seen by Tony Clapson. Sure Scotty got a standing ovation when he came on, but that was before people realised that he had no business being on stage in his condition and should have re-scheduled the tour. The man had major brain surgery 3 months before and looked and played like someone recovering from this condition. I for one was bitterly disapointed with the whole show, maybe if he had spoken a few words about that glorious session back in '54 it would have been worthwhile, but he stayed well in the background and might as well have been nondiscript backing guitarist. As for the rest of the ensemble I woudn't have paid 20p to see them never mind £20 if I'd known what they were like.

just saw Scotty and the Grundy Pritchard band last night in Dublin - a fantastic gig. Scotty is definitely on top form - amazing for a guy his age and so soon after a major operation. He did a great job on all the classic (and now historic) solos including King Creole. The band were brilliant also and the lead singer Paul Ansell put over Elvis's sun songs very well, great talent all around

I saw Scotty in Nottingham Tuesday night at the Rescue Rooms, the Grundy Pritchard band were hot. When Scotty came out the crowd erupted. He was great an honour and privilege to see him live. Thanks Scotty you the MAN.

I am so happy to hear Scotty is doing well. As everyone knows, we are less than 4 months away from that magical day, when on July 5th 1954, the world of music and popular culture would be forever changed. 50 years of Rock n Roll 1954-2004. Most of the world knows. However, remind those that need to be reminded, and tell those that need to know... TCB, and let's have the biggest Rock n Roll party ever, globally....'

I saw Scotty in London at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on Wednesday. He did a great show, considering his health and age. He got a standing ovation the moment he walked onto the stage!
