Paul McCartney paid tribute to Elvis Presley on Sunday (26May13) by placing a guitar pick on a memorial to The King at his former home in Memphis, Tennessee.

The former Beatles star was in the city to perform at the FedExForum, and he used a break on the day of the gig to pay a special trip to Graceland, where Presley died in 1977.

The estate now serves as a museum, and MCCartney visited one of the memorials in the grounds to pay his respects.

The rocker's visit was documented on his page, and one picture shows the star about to place a plectrum on a stone monument.
