Dominic Joseph “D.J.” Fontana
(March 15, 1931 – June 13, 2018)
Elvis’ drummer D.J. Fontana has passed away at 87. He was the last of the Blue Moon Boys.
Here’s (above, L-R) Scotty Moore, D.J., Elvis and Bill Black in Loving You (1957), Elvis’ second movie — and certainly one of his best.
To see these guys tearing it up in Technicolor and VistaVision (shot by the great Charles Lang, Jr.) is really something to behold. Elvis even drives a really cool 1929 Ford hot rod (mounted on a ’32 frame). This movie’s got everything.
