One of my all time favorite drummers... Carter Beauford. I might even rank this guy above Neil Peart. He is a much less "organized" drummer like Grohl, and more what I call a chaotic drummer, but I think he is the best jazz drummer I have ever seen.

Damn that's wild. Wonder if he had a fear of flying across the ocean we never heard of.
Quick Google search....

Elvis' manager, Colonel Tom Parker (whose real name was Andreas Cornelis van Kuijk) was an illegal alien. Sending Elvis overseas, where Parker would have needed a passport to travel, would have jeopardized his being "found out". And Parker wasn't about to send Elvis over there by himself, where someone else might have exerted control over him and convinced Elvis to dump Parker.

It is reported that a promoter in Saudi Arabia offered $10M US to tour there, which Parker turned down.

Man back then traveling across the country was going fucking places.
