Remembering Billy Goldenberg

Billy Goldenberg passed away in early August. His success spanned theater, films and television - yet most Elvis fans know him for his work on Elvis' 1968 television special.

Goldenberg was asked by Steve Binder to be the arranger and musical director of the special and come up with a new sound for Elvis. Billy hired a large orchestra and a bevy of fine guitarists as musicians for the show. This was new for Elvis and a totally new experience for Billy. The result was more than successful, giving Elvis a whole new sound. Ratings for the show broke all records, and Elvis was on his way in a whole new direction.

Graceland was fortunate to have Billy with us for the 50th anniversary of the '68 Comeback Special in 2018. He shared stories and memories with fans - and the staff at Graceland enjoyed the time he spent here with us.

Billy sat down for an interview while in Memphis that was included as part of our Gates of Graceland Episode – Secrets of the ’68 Special. CLICK HERE TO WATCH
