He did capture the hearts of many women including me. I remember thinking I would never get to see him in person. That was when I lived in Idaho. In the 70's we moved to Las Vegas and I just knew that I would one day get to go see him since he performed there often.
Just my luck, he passed away the year I moved there. I remember feeling so sad. He has such a beautiful voice. I especially love his gospel albums.
Have you ever been to Graceland? Well in 1994 my husband took me to Graceland. We did the tour and saw all the different rooms in the Elvis mansion. The only room that was not shown to the public was the Master Suite which is where Elvis spent a lot of quiet time and also where he passed away.
There was a recording studio and we toured the grounds of Graceland where we saw the graveside of Elvis, Aaron his twin brother and Elvis's Father Vernon. I heard that he his Mother was moved there also. Yes, they are buried at Graceland. It was a special treat but would have loved to see him while he was alive.
He was and still is one of the biggest stars ever. Can you imagine being him and not being able to go out in public. I read that if he wanted to go to the movies or to Disneyland he had to arrange to close the theater or Disneyland to all but his family and friends.
He did so much good for others and he loved everyone. I think he truly loved his fans. I am sure that even with all the fans that adored him he must have felt very much alone. I think that he is sitting beside the lord and singing all those beautiful songs for heaven.
How many of you were Elvis fans and what memories can you share about the King of Rock and Roll?
