There were 4 of them, 1950's, Sun Studios in Memphis, Elvis, Bill Black on bass, Scotty Moore on guitar and D.J. Fontana on drums. They played the Ed Sullivan Show together, they'd record the soundtracks to Elvis' goofy movies together, and D.J. & Scotty were with Elvis for the "Comeback Special" in 1968. D.J Fontana was 87, he was the last of the 4 guys who came out of Sun Studios together and helped to invent Rock & Roll. He was inducted into the R&R HOF in 2009.
We are deeply saddened by the passing of legend D.J. Fontana. D.J. was Elvis' drummer for 14 years and played on over 460 RCA cuts with Elvis. pic.twitter.com/Eqju6OhbV6— Sun Record Company (@sunrecords) June 14, 2018
