This highly acclaimed guitarist holds a distinction few, if any, can claim. He has played with Elvis Presley and the Monkees. A session wizard who brought Nashville to rock music, and boogie-blues to country, Burton has played on records by Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Ricky Nelson, and Nancy Sinatra, among others. Widely regarded as a top guitarist, Burton has but one solo album, allowing his legendary licks to grace others' records rather than his own.
