John Wilkinson played rhythm guitar for Elvis in more than a thousand shows and was also a headliner himself as a singer and guitarist for top groups such as The New Christy Minstrels.
He sneaked into Elvis’ dressing room before a show once when he was ten years old, where he made a startling and amusing statement to Elvis. To find out what the precocious 10-year old had to say to the “King of Rock’n’Roll” visit http://SouthernGarageBands.com
He was one of those genuine talents who was also a genuine down-to-earth guy. Not a big name celebrity but he certainly made a huge star shine more brightly.
