You mean Marty Stuart?
Only one TITAN BIG ENOUGH for them shoes...
But then Elvis woulda fired him for taking his thunder...I mean...who wants to listen to Elvis with Danny at the helm?
here’s one of my short stories you might enjoy.
If we're talking late 70's, Gill was still a beginner compared to Burton or Lee. I heard him in 1984 working with Rosanne Cash, and he was there for his voice and not his guitar playing.

Yep. Saw him with the Eagles. He doesn't miss beat and isn't a flashy personality. Just gets the job done well and is happy to not try to grab the lights.
All the replies are appreciated, but the hard rock and metal heads would not have lasted one minute with Elvis. He hated bands like Kiss and other bands with distorted guitar up the Ying Yang. Brian Setzer and Danny Gatton might have fit the bill, but only if they laid back and played simpler guitar. That goes for all the guitar virtuosos who came along after Elvis' passing.
Yep, he would have been able to do it.
Come to think of it, Gordie Matthews who used to play in k.d.Langs band, The Reclines would have done a hell of a job backing Elvis. He played a mean Tele when I saw her back in 1986. There are thousands of unknowns who could have done the job.
everyone who is not a guitar player
Though I’m not an Elvis guy, Gatton would have been a good choice.
He could be a great sideman, as he was with Roger Miller, or Robert Gordon.
He could also burn like no one else.
I’m not his fan-boy either.
I saw Danny from 6 feet away, years ago.
Ridiculous chops, hideous tone.
deleted, double post
This is most likely true. His songs weren't very difficult to play.
And yet, when jazz genius Hank Garland filled in for a spell, Elvis made note that Hank couldn't quite nail a lot of Scotty Moore's playing
