And now with Norbert in the band, the show is better than ever. We are having a great time up there. We all want to continue doing this show for the fans for as long as we can". About a day or two before the Copenhagen concert, bass-player Norbert Putnam invited me to come over to their hotel, the Crowne Plaza near the airport.
Even though I was suffering from a nasty laryngitis, it was hard to resist so I went over to the hotel to say hello to the TCB guys. Pretty soon they were all down in the lobby, chatty and amiable as always. It was very nice to reconnect with Glen D. Hardin again.
Glen is such a genuinely nice guy, and he inquired about my family. Glen added that what happened to Duke while with Elvis had a lot to do with the bodyguards. Ronnie Tutt agreed and said: "It was all politics… I was the one that got Duke the job. He was a fine bassplayer".
So there you have it, another myth laid to rest by the people who were there. Joe Guercio came over and heard the last part of the conversation. He said: "Duke Bardwell! You can see Duke tell that very story himself on this clip Go Here. Not surprisingly, Ronnie Tutt seemed affected by the recent death of his son Nathan and was quiet for the most part. We did talk about it briefly, and it was hard to see the pain in his eyes.
It was difficult to find the right words to say to a man who had suffered such a terrible blow. James Burton and Norbert Putnam really seemed to hit it off well together, and were chatting together for much of the night. Norbert inquired about my show, and he asked who was playing on it. I did a lot of sessions with them, Muscle Shoals, Nashville, and so on… Great voices". James Burton listened closely and his eyes lit up when the conversation shifted to the screen show.
We are having a great time up there", he said. He got a serious look on his face when I mentioned that this was being advertised as being the last tour with the original musicians. We all love doing this.
They EPE want to continue the show with anonymous players, so they can make twice as much money. You need to mobilize the fans and you have to tell EPE that this is wrong.
We all want to continue doing this show for the fans for as long as we possibly can". Very similar sentiments came from all the other players I talked to on this night and the night of the concert. Since they all talked about the show with a great deal of warmth, I was greatly anticipating the concert at the Forum in Copenhagen. I had my wife and children with me. As we arrived at the venue, the place seemed to be bubbling with activity and excitement.
Tonight, The Forum was clearly the place to be. A little after eight, the first tones of the Opening Theme filled the room. There were 4, fans in the room… and you could just feel the whole place buzzing with excitement.
It was easy to get lost in the illusion that we were anticipating the arrival of Elvis himself. Elvis filled the room with his unique stage presence. The mix of the music was tremendous, much better than the last time I saw this show. I really enjoyed listening out for Putnam's refined, intricate playing and the whole band seemed very taken with him. When James told me the night before that the TCB band was playing better than ever I figured that this statement was partly hype, but having heard the band for myself I agree with him wholeheartedly.
These versions are not all that good to begin with, and I felt that using eight of them in a row was pushing things a bit. The show seemed to lose some of its momentum here. They should have removed this one as well. The producers did a sensational job on this segment, and the band and the singers were truly outstanding.
I felt a big lump in my throat while these songs were performed, and clearly I was not the only one. Everybody was standing, clapping and singing along… It was incredibly powerful. I had goosebumps all over. Seriously though, great showmanship, great musicianship and topnotch production work… Just sensational. Elvis and the band really rocked out on the climaxes, and the excellent lightning added to the overall excitement. The atmosphere in the room was tremendous and the crowd was quite vocal in showing their appreciation.
Check out the video below and judge for yourself. The gentleness of Glen D. At the same time it was so sad to think that this uniquely talented individual left us 35 years ago. The illusion of seeing Elvis right in front of me performing at his peak and the sad reality of him being dead was almost too much to fully take in, and I choked up several times during this song.
I guess moments like this are tough for all of us who love Elvis. By now the audience had been standing and cheering for several songs, but this song got the best reaction of the night. There they all stood at the end, waving at the crowd, looking like war heroes, a bit older and perhaps a little frail looking but still GREAT.
Elvis was really with us tonight in Copenhagen, and we owe it all to these amazing musicians and the topnotch production crew for pulling it off. You could still feel the excitement and happiness all over as we left the Forum. Elvis had truly rocked the Danish capital.
They all told me how much they enjoy doing this, and that they want to continue with this show as long as they possibly can. James Burton called it a wonderful tribute to Elvis, and I agree with him. The musicians feel that the show is now tighter than ever, and having seen the show I fully agree… Elvis looks amazing on the big screen notwithstanding a few songs where the footage is a bit blurry , his voice sounds magnificent, and the mix is better than before with the band sounding tight and crisp.
The show is a fantastic tribute to Elvis, and no doubt he would have been honored if he would have been able to see the Copenhagen concert. It would be interesting to hear from other fans. What do you think? Do you feel that EPE should keep this show as is with the original musicians, or should they give the new concept with anonymous players a try?

Knudsen's personally led tours and boundless enthusiasm are a big part of the attraction. It's hard to explain.
