Black and white publicity photograph of Carl Perkins singing at a microphone and playing a guitar.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Brenda/'My Love'/Carl Perkins/88". B/w, 8x10 overall, image 5¾x8¾ (one surface). Captioned at lower margin. Singer/songwriter Carl Perkins (1932-1998) had a No. 1 hit with "Blue Suede Shoes" in 1956. In a tragic twist of fate, Carl and his brother were seriously injured in an auto accident while on their way to appear on television shows in New York City (The Perry Como Show on Saturday night and The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday evening). While in traction, Perkins watched Elvis Presley perform his hit on Sullivan's variety show. While his own career never regained its momentum, Perkins continued to record and write songs for other stars, including Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and the Beatles, and his guitar style was highly influential. Before his death from throat cancer, he saw himself elevated to "living legend" status and elected to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Lightly creased at lower right corner. Fine condition.
