GUEST,Sidewinder Origins:That's All Right (Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup) (17) RE: Lyr Req: That's Alright Mama 30 Jan 05


I read that Elvis paid for Big Boy Crudup to record some of his songs on Fire records in the late sixties as a gesture and also claimed one of his proudest moments was when he helped Crudup to change a flat tyre on Beale Street when Elvis was a teenager.Thanks for the information Stewie I have read many articles over the years about Bluesmen and Women who have been robbed and cheated by business associates or Managers and it is sickening but let us not forget Old Colonel Parker who helped himself to 50% of Elvis' earnings in life and after death and Brian Epstein who through inexperience lost The Beatles millions in merchandising revenue and misjudged contractual agreements. There are downsides to most legendary artists financial arrangements.

Regards.

Sidewinder.
