45 Years Since Elvis Presley Died

August 16, 2022

This year in which the Butler (Austin) did it, portraying Elvis so well in the movie “Elvis,” today is the exact 45 year anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death on Tuesday August 16, 1977.


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 45 years disappeared.

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