Remembering Elvis Presley

August 16, 2016

it was exactly 39 years ago today, on Tuesday August 16, 1977 that the great Elvis Presley died far too young at the age of 42.

Mr. Presley aka “The King,” was so great for so long a period of time, another record breaker, basketball’s Wilt Chamberlain, who also died on a Tuesday, commented that those criticizing, largely out of fear, his “outrageous” style in the 1950’s, were standing on line to buy tickets to see Elvis perform in Las Vegas and other places in the 1970’s.

Time marches on inexorably, so many greats gone, today remembering as great a performer as ever was, while wondering where 39 years disappeared.

The “King” may be dead, but oh how long he has and will live.
