Rockabilly Hall of Fame Has New Unusual Elvis Exhibit

The Rockabilly Hall of Fame, a new museum in Jackson, Tennessee has an unusual exhibit in its collection.

The star exhibit is the defibrillator and paddles which were used to try and revive the dying Elvis Presley in 1977.

"The fact is that it's history," said museum owner and curator Henry Harrison, who raised around $300,000 (£214,000) to open the one-room museum, which has no actual hall of fame yet.

Jackson was the home of Rockabilly singer Carl Perkins, best known for Blue Suede Shoes. He died there in 1998.
