Over the last 70 years, James Burton has performed with all the greats and is the only guitarist to have played with all four members of the Million Dollar Quartet and the Rat Pack.
The 83-year-old, who shows little sign of stopping, is best known as Elvis Presley‘s TCB band leader.
The guitar player performed alongside The King on his tours and most famously his Las Vegas residencies.
He’s one of the few people left alive today who personally knew the music icon, who died in 1977.
And during an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, he gave his verdict on Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic.
Burton, who performed a special show with Sir Brian May in London earlier this summer, said of the biopic: “It was ok.
“Since I worked with Elvis there was some goods and some bads. Austin did a wonderful, great job.
“It kinda slid by a lot of stuff. Some of it looked fake to me, not really the real thing. It’s like when you take something real and fake it, it’s not the same.”
