William Patton "Bill" Black, Jr. born September 17, 1926 He is noted for being Elvis Presley's bassist, Born in Memphis, Tennessee. In the early-1950s, the Black family lived in Lauderdale Courts housing complex in Memphis. Several of the Black children attended Hume's High School at the same time as Elvis, although Bill had already left home for the army Military service. Bill Black went on to play double bass on early Presley recordings including "Good Rockin' Tonight", , "Baby Let's Play House"Heartbreak Hotel and "that's alright mama" "Heartbreak Hotel" is a rock and roll song by Elvis Presley, with Bill Black, Scotty Moore, and D.J Fontana on the drums as the main supporting musicians.... Bill's personality would often "warm" the audience to the band in the early live shows. Elvis' unusual and very active stage presence was not always easily accepted. Bill's comedic personality would often relax the audience and win them over to their side. Although guitarist Scotty Moore would eventually work with Presley again, Black never did, joining a Memphis group that evolved into Bill Black's Combo in 1959. Their instrumental "Smokie," released late that year, made the Top Ten. Black continued to work with Presley until 1958, leaving his band partly due to disputes over financial terms. Black died of a brain tumor in October 21, 1965 and was buried in forest hill cemetery Memphis.
