Such a sad loss. The only consolation is knowing that The Blue Moon Boys are back together again.

One of the last icons of the real Rock 'n' Roll era has left the building. An expected loss, still it is sad to read.

Sad news - we saw him once at the Royal Festival Hall but unfortunately not in the 50's - Thanks Scotty R.I.P.

Considering the amount of instanly recgonisable world famous guitar licks that he was responsible for and the history that he experienced first hand at the very start of Elvis's career, on every TV or radio interview that I've seen or heard he always came across as a very geniune humble person. Yet another sad day, truely one of the greats. R.I.P.

Definitely never ever the greatest guitarist in popular music but without doubt the one that has along with Elvis given me the greatest enjoyment and entertainment for the last 50 years. A humble and very likeable icon has sadly gone from our midst.

One of the greatest guitar players that ever lived. Scotty and Elvis rocked the world. Scotty knew what he was doing. R.I.P. Scotty

Both shocking and sad to hear, the music scene is all the poorer for it now. The guitar licks on Hound Dog say it all. Thanks Scotty RIP.
