Being an Elvis freak at the time, I remember this day vividly, almost like it was yesterday...okay, actually maybe say...Tuesday, like, two weeks ago. STILL, his sudden death was a shock. It was Elvis and he was SO YOUNG. I don't think most folks at the time REALLY knew how far gone he was...

In the Summer of '77 I had the chance to see Elvis, it what would have been one of his last performances ever, but my parents wouldn't take me. I'm still a bit bummed, even tho it would'a been FAT ELVIS and our seats would'a been shite since we were poor, BUT I could have SEEN Elvis Presley LIVE. Oh well.
