Melissa Etheridge does Elvis Tribute on MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET stage

Melissa Etheridge joined the cast of Million Dollar Quartet for a quick performance recently and did an incredible Elvis tribute, which you can see below.

On December 4, 1956, an auspicious twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley together. The place was Sun Records’ storefront studio in Memphis. The man who made it happen was Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock and Roll," who discovered them all. The four young musicians united for the only time in their careers for an impromptu recording that has come to be known as one of the greatest rock jam sessions of all time.

Inspired by the actual event, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET features a treasure trove of the greatest rock and roll, gospel, R&B and country hits from these musicians, including such iconic songs as "Blue Suede Shoes," "Fever," "Sixteen Tons," "Who Do You Love?," "Great Balls of Fire," "Riders in the Sky," "I Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues," and "Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On."MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET captures the infectious spirit, freewheeling excitement and thrilling sounds of a singular moment when four of the music industry’s most extraordinary talents, all in their creative prime, came together for one of the most memorable nights in music history.

Auspicious beginnings were a trademark of Elvis' career. In Sharon Sheeley's autobiography, "SUMMERTIME BLUES" she reveals intimate never before told events in the early life of The King. Tom Petty, Brian Setzer, Duane Eddy, Lee Rocker and many more artists all say that Summertime Blues is a must read.

I think "she" was way out of her league. She acted like she was going to pass out, for lack of oxygen before she could finish. I don't think she brought any credit to Elvis by her performance, just herself, which really didn't work. Elvis was on the cutting edge of music, BUT, he stood for a good style of life, and Ms.Meliss. doesn't. Shoot me for these feelings, but these are all facts, and shouldn't be overlooked. Let's keep a good image of Elvis and not sully it with mediocre talent bent on making a comeback, with a hidden agenda.
