Liberace and Elvis Presley at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas on November 16, 1956

(Original Caption) This combination is surely enough to bring down upon us a mass epidemic of teenage swooning spells. Doing the double switch are Liberace, just back from a European tour, and Elvis Presley. Liberace gave up his piano and gold sequined jacket to Presley for the latter’s guitar and striped sports coat in an impromptu jam session backstage after Liberace’s appearance at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas.

Guitar legends

Ike Turner, Matt “Guitar” Murphy, Scotty Moore and Joe Louis Walker at Central Park’s SummerStage in New York on July 26, 1997.

Murphy, famous as part of the Blues Brothers band, played in the Blue Flames with Turner in 1952, while Moore played with Elvis Presley’s group.

 

Joe Louis Walker: “He [Ike] was a great musician and musical visionary. We toured England, France, Germany and the USA culminating in our Central Park USA show, where we brought Scotty Moore and Matt Murphy. Learned quite a bit from them all. They were all originators and anyone playing roots style music owes them a debt of gratitude. Thank you.”
