          She played bass on 'First Cut is the Deepest', when I saw her live...damned good too. She mentioned that Cat Stevens penned that song before starting to sing.

            Elvis never did a world tour, so several members of his backing band are taking the dead Elvis on the road with them.

            Playing along to footage of the King performing his greatest hits live on giant video screens will be TCB (Taking Care of Business) band members including Joe Guercio, Elvis's band leader and musical director for the final decade of his life, and lead guitarist James Burton, as well as some original backing singers and members of his orchestra.

            Guinness World Records listed it as the first live show headlined by a dead performer, but did the TCB band ever think of replacing their dead frontman through a reality TV talent quest? Rock Star: Elvis, perhaps?

            "Well," Burton says in a Louisiana drawl, "I know most of the Elvis impersonators and so far I haven't seen anything come close. I think it would probably be impossible to find another Elvis. Not in my lifetime, I don't see it happening any time soon."

            But hasn't 67-year-old Burton got word of perhaps the most famous Elvis impersonator, new INXS frontman J. D. Fortune?

            "Haven't heard of him," says Burton, who seems to have recorded with everyone but INXS, including Roy Orbison, John Denver, Johnny Cash, George Harrison, Frank Sinatra, Henry Mancini, the Byrds, the Everly Brothers, Tina Turner, Dolly Parton, Linda Rondstat, Willie Nelson and the Mamas & the Papas.

            What is it like performing with a dead frontman, then?

            "It's amazing," Burton says. "You can see what it would have been really like when he sang Love Me Tender. You see, when I'm onstage, I can just close my eyes and I feel him, I close my eyes and play and I can feel him there, you know; he's singing and I'm playing, and it's like he's there."

            .

              james played with Rick(y) Nelson too...Ozzie heard him playing in a club in LA...Brought him home, he actually lived with the Nelsons for awhile and become part of Rickys band, he was always featured on the show when Ricky was playing at impromptu parties at the Nelson household in front of a bevy of starlets...only family on TV with a Coke machine(soda) in the garage.

                  Another thing about Elvis shows, is that he did a live concert from Hawaii that was the first billion viewing audience world-wide tv broadcast.

                  I think he got paid $20.00 and all the beer and 'ludes he could do for his performance.

                    I don't doubt her abilities, but Sheryl Crow isn't the first name one thinks of for playing bass, even among female bassists...

                        he forgot the words to 'Jailhouse Rock"' during that concert... kinda funny, kinda sad.

                          Sheryl Crow?

                          Couldn't they have at least used Paul McCartney?

                          Sheryl Crow?

                            so, are you saying they picked her for the faux video for her legs, rather than her bass chops?

                              Because she has nicer legs than Paul (the former 'cute' Beatle) that now looks like an English Bulldog. Sheryl has nicer legs than Sir Pauls soon to be ex-wife, and even nicer legs than HER ex, Lance Armstrong
