Interview Date
Job Title
Musician, Guitarist

Brian Setzer nearly single handedly brought back the popularity of the rockabilly electric guitar sound that was first established by Scotty Moore, Elvis Presley's first guitarist.  Brian was interviewed for the NAMM Oral History program within a month of Scotty Moore's passing in the summer of 2016 and spent time recalling the influence Scotty had on him, as well as so many other musicians.  Brian also talked about the music stores he visited as a kid in New York and his long relationship with the Gretsch Company.
