    Happy Birthday to the King

    The "King of Rock and Roll" that is...

    Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977)

    Smoothie, he was.

    I caught part of a documentary about Elvis a couple of weeks ago and his daughter was saying that If I Can Dream was one of his favourites; cracking song.

    Elvis' "Aloha Concert" from Hawaii, was one of the first worldwide broadcasts via satellite. (Jan 1973)

    One of his best concerts as well. He did a great rendition of "I'll Remember You", which was a local favorite and a "show closer", used by Hawaiian entertainer Don Ho.

    One of my fav's too.

    As a sidenote here...I remember where I was when the news of Elvis' passing came out.

    I was on a flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. When we arrived at the gate and the door was opened, there were two ticket agents (ladies) who greeted the flight. They were crying. I mean they were really crying.

    They told us that the announcement of his death had just come out around 15 minutes before our arrival there.

    There were a lot of tears that day, as I remember.

    I remember where I was as well, it was a big deal but i was only a kid; 13 or so. I find it hard now to mourn people who do themselves to death through excess of anything, regardless of how talented they may be.
