Paul McCartney plays Bill Black’s original double bass from the early Elvis Presley recordings (white trim around the edges–very distinctive) on this video clip. He tells some Elvis traveling stories about the trio driving around with the bass strapped to the roof rack and plays ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ for the audience.
