Brown took over from Glen D. Hardin on 21st April 1976 in Kansas City, MO and played the piano on all further shows with a total of 175.
Elvis and Tony met at RCAs studio C in Hollywood in March 1975. Elvis was ready to cut a song called Bringing it Back. Tony Brown, the new piano player of Voice, had played on the demo and Elvis obviously liked his style. When David Briggs announced that Tony was in the same studio, Elvis called him out. I was hyperventilating, it was heaven, Tony recalls. And before he knew it, he found himself playing on the session. By 1976, Tony Brown had permanently replaced Glen D.
Tony is now a respectful businessman, holding a key-job in the record industry. He is now president of MCA-Nashville.
