James Burton Buys House On Elvis Presley Avenue

September 08, 2006 | Other
James Burton and his wife Louise have bought the building across the street from the Municipal Auditorium, where Elvis played week after week in the fifties at the Louisiana Hayride. James started playing in the staff band when he was 14 years old. The building, located at Elvis Presley Avenue, is the new home of the James Burton Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps children in developing their musical talents.

The building is, in fact, an office block and not a house and Louise told me back in March that they had bought it. What a great home for the James Burton Foundation to have.
