Roland Janes passed away

After a stint in the Marines during the Korean War, Janes settled in Memphis where he started playing for artists at a small recording studio. It was there that he met Jack Clement who brought him to Sam Phillips at Sun Records. Janes became the house guitarist at Sun in 1956, a position he would hold for seven years. His guitar can be heard on the majority of tracks cut by Jerry Lee Lewis, including Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On and High School Confidential, along with other Sun artists like Charlie Rich and Sonny Burgess. He also was a member of Billy Lee Riley's Little Green Men. While still at Sun, Janes and Riley founded their own label, Rita Records, where they had a hit with Harold Dorman's original version of his song Mountain of Love.

The craziest thing since she & Kristen Stewart are like this (She crosses her fingers) They are like best friends. That is a rumor. I’ll be happy to put that to bed. She never said anything. I was like why don’t you say something! As for the other thing, I can be safe, I don’t know what's happening. I can be safe saying that. Later in the show, Andy returns from a break: I’m in the clubhouse with the lady who owns Graceland, Lisa Marie Presley ! Another caller asks: Lisa, Would you ever let your daughters date a really super over the top mega Elvis fan? LMP : Well, I know my daughter would not go for an over the top Elvis fan. Particularly, I think she’d
