On this date in 1977, Elvis Aaron Presley moved on to the next plane of existence. I was a kid, but I remember when it was announced – we were staying at our Uncle Les’s rental duplex in Surfside, Sc. My grandmother, my aunt, my mom and dad and sister were there. I didn’t know that much about him, just that he sang the Hound Dog and Jailhouse song. I don’t think there was any crying but I know it was shocking and my grandmother was very upset. Since he covered other people’s songs and many people have covered his hits – let’s pour one out for the King Of Rock and Roll with originals and covers of his hits.
As always, thanks for your support!
