Happy Birthday Elvis Presley!!

January 8, 2009

Elvis Presley was born on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi.    At the time he was born into a ‘shotgun’ house, no one could imagine that as a man he would influence American music for three decades.   In the 1950’s he was called the devil by some for his gyrations, and banned in certain cities from playing concerts.  By the time of his concert comeback in the late 1960’s, and throughout the 1970’s in Las Vegas and around the nation, the word ‘showmanship’ and ‘entertainer’ had become synonymous with his name.

    Is this a vote? Then I go for the fat, bloated, tired Elvis of 1977.

    Happy Birthday!!!

    Oh, if you are up there with Johnny Cash and happen to see him, tell him I said hello..
