Elvis Presley's favourite guitarist is recovering in a Nashville, Tennessee, hospital after undergoing brain surgery.

SCOTTY MOORE, 71, is said to be in a serious but stable condition after the operation.

Moore, who often played with Presley, was admitted to hospital last week (ends05DEC03) after medics discovered he had a subdural hematoma, which was limiting the use of the right side of his body.
