Elvis Under The Covers by Michael Madden - Carl Perkins

Sometimes I learn something that just blows my mind. Today, I learnt something that made me think 'why didn't I already know that?'

Carl Perkins, part of the Million Dollar Quartet and the author of Blue Suede Shoes was the subject of this morning's research. Some things I didn't know about the late great Mr Perkins...

He played guitar on Johnny Cash's A Boy Named Sue
He opened for Cash at San Quentin and Folsom
He wrote Cash's Daddy Sang Bass

I am sure there will be more....


PS Coming soon - some exciting news about the book cover!
