He later worked on "That's Alright, Elvis: The Untold Story of Elvis' First Guitarist and Manager", a book he wrote as told to James Dickerson. Moore's journey with Elvis is captured on several TV shows and documentaries, including "This is Elvis" and "Elvis: The Early Years". Moore was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 and is considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time.
