Hall of Fame: Legendary guitarist James Burton visits the Beatles Story

Hall of Fame: Legendary guitarist James Burton visits the Beatles Story

The Beatles Story welcomed legendary Hall of Fame inductee, James Burton, to our Albert Dock exhibition on Friday July, 3 2015.

The American guitarist – ranked 19th on Rolling Stone Magazine’s 100 Greatest Guitarists list – has recorded with a host of iconic music heavyweights having established himself as a recording artist at the tender age of 16.

Amongst the rich array of artists that James has recorded and played with boasts a list of names including George Harrison, Ricky Nelson, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, The Everly Brothers, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, BB King, Glenn Campbell, Jeff Beck and, perhaps most famously of all, Elvis Presley.

The latter of this impressive list holds a close affiliation with the Beatles Story, having starred in our former exhibition at the Pier Head, ‘Elvis & Us’. Interestingly enough, in February 2015, Director of Archives for Elvis Presley Enterprises, Angie Marchese, presented the Beatles Story with one of Elvis’ iconic stage-belts, which was worn on stage in Las Vegas during Elvis' performance at the Las Vegas Hilton.

Whilst our links with Elvis are something that we are extremely proud of, we are equally as proud to have welcomed a guest of James’ stature through our doors.

Reflecting upon his early career with The Beatles during an interview in GP Magazine in 1985, the late, great George Harrison said: “Those early sounds that we did, I just hated them. They sounded so puny. I mean, listening to James Burton playing on the Rick Nelson records… and we would come up with our stuff that was so feeble.”

James Burton will be playing at Fort Perch Rock, New Brighton, at 7.30pm on 3rd, 4th and 5th July 2015.
