Interview at Gibson

This video was recorded in Memphis at the Gibson Beale Street Showcase in May of 2006 during The Ponderosa Stomp. In these clips Scotty talks briefly about his influences, buying his first Gibson, his first meeting with Elvis, the Sun sessions and the 68 Special. The ES295 he's holding during it is the first of the limited edition Scotty Moore signature ES295s made in 1999. This one was presented to him in London and is currently on display at the Rock 'n Soul museum in Memphis.
