Not many guitarists in R&R were as original & as inventive as Scotty Moore RIP whosay.com/l/QzabPwo

One of the true greats - no-one played like him, although many tried. bbc.co.uk/news/entertain…

There are two kinds of guitarists: those who have been influenced by Scotty Moore, and those who should have been. RIP.

RIP ScottyMoore. I had the privilege of playing with Scotty in 1994 at the Elvis "Now or Never"… instagram.com/p/BHPGC7yAOgY/

Want to eat for free?

Make your name more edible

 According to Mashable, an upmarket burger chain called Mr Burger is making hungry fast food fans an offer they can't refuse - free burgers for life.

The downside is that you have to change your surname to Burger.

People have been posting their reaction on Facebook.

Simon Vannarath What if your last name is Burger? Free burgers for Burger Burger... the Burgher.  

Sheri Holdren Why don't they just feed the homeless occasionally instead...🤔🤔💡💡

Gabrielle Nicole Alvarez Thank God they put a limit on this offer, this generation will do anything lol  

Michael Burger Can I get some vouchers? I'll even legally change my middle name to Angus for free burgers  

#SafetyPin

A sign "to protect those being abused as a result of Brexit"

The hashtag was started by @cheeahs who started to wear a safety pin as a sign that she supports the UK's immigrant population.

The hashtag has been shared over 20,000 times so far. Here are some responses to #SafetyPin:

I'd like to come up with something that can be made by anybody anywhere to pin on their jacket or coat to signify that they are an ally.

Tomorrow I'm going to try & start a hashtag trend to paint your ears blue in solidaity with the EU to see if millennials do it #safetypin

Not entirely sure how I feel about this #safetypin movement tbh. Solidarity is speaking up, being aware and raising dialogue about racism.
