Elvis fans can now check out a new video from Sir Paul McCartney backstage during his "Out There" Tour in Memphis. In the new video (above), McCartney talks about seeing Elvis on the big screen for the first time and even breaks out his own Elvis moves.

On Sunday, May 26, 2013, Sir Paul McCartney made the rock 'n' roll pilgrimage to Graceland where he left behind his personal guitar pick stating, "So Elvis could play his guitar in heaven." During his tour, he was offered a rare glimpse inside the Graceland Archives and helped the staff tune Elvis' guitar. McCartney briefly played Elvis’ 1956 Gibson J200 guitar while humming the famous Elvis tune "Loving You." This was McCartney's first time visiting Graceland and the second time to tour in Memphis in 20 years.
