(CNN) — Paul McCartney gives the best gifts.

When the former Beatle visited Graceland, the mansion once occupied by the late Elvis Presley, on Sunday, he reportedly left a personalized guitar pick at Presley’s grave.

The singer was in Memphis, Tennessee as part of his “Out There” tour – with his performance marking his first visit to the city in 20 years – and he seized the opportunity to see Presley’s old stomping grounds.

On Twitter, McCartney shared photos of himself holding a guitar, and another one leaving the pick at Presley’s grave.

“Paying respects,” the almost 71-year-old tweeted, along with a photo

According to Rolling Stone, McCartney, along with the Beatles, met Presley once in Los Angeles in 1965.
