Judging from the "As Recorded at Madison Square Garden" album, that was a great period for The King. When it was reissued on CD, I remember a reading a review that made me laugh by with a line about Elvis singing "Hound Dog" so quickly, the writer assumed he had a cab waiting outside with the meter running.Ron Tutt playing with Elvis, June 9, 1972 at Madison Square Garden.
If you want a little more famous, then either Danny Seraphine or Buddy Rich. Saw them both in the late 1970s, but I don't recall which was first.
Same here. He was playing with his big band in a high school auditorium. Must've been ... 1974? I was about 9 and my dad took me. A real eye opener. I remember some one-handed single stroke rolls like it was yesterday.Louie!
I skipped a high school basketball pep band performance to catch him performing at another school.
