From the Estate of Scotty Moore

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio was founded in 1983 by Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records. In 1986, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame foundation began awarding inductees. In 2000, the new category of “Sideman” was introduced. This category was to “honor those musicians who have spent their careers out of the spotlight, performing as backup musicians for major artists on recording sessions and in concert” and one of the first recipients of this new award was Scotty Moore. Offered is Scotty Moore’s own Rock and Roll Hall of Fame award presented to him on March 6, 2000 at the Waldorf Astoria ceremony by Mike Stoller who said, “What I have to say about Scotty Moore is that Elvis Presley was a lucky man.” Scotty was ranked by Rolling Stone magazine as 29th of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time. This sleek statue with its black figure standing on a base with arms stretched above its head holding a record has a front plaque with Scotty’s name and the year of his induction. Similar statues have sold in the range of $10,000. This one, belonging to Scotty Moore and emanating directly from his estate, measures 15 by 3 13/16 by 3 13/16 inches (38.1 x 9.68 x 9.68 cm), and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The disc has been reset into the statuette - this is a common issue with these awards. Otherwise the award presents in Near Mint condition.
