    Default He'll Always Be Elvis: Remembering the 'King' 40 Years today

    I was 11 years old when Elvis' death occurred. The news reached me one fine summer evening, the rain had just stopped, I was on my bicycle in the courtyard of my parents. I still remember the warmth and the ambient humidity of this summer evening. It had to be around 6:30 pm. My uncle's youngest brother of my mother was 21 years old lived with us. He had come to work crying and he told me he's dead. I asked who died? He replied Elvis. Since then I have never had so much grief for an artist. It was perhaps my young age at that time... But still today, I keep good memories with beautiful moments with my family listening the voice on the vinyl disc of Elvis.


    Elvis and his mesmerizing voice, unrivaled and unmatched...!

    His misfortune was Parker. Many things have been said over the years about his life, decadence and lifestyle. Some even try to prove that he was still alive. Go have a look on YouTube to laugh a good shot. But for me it will always remain alive in music.

    What is Elvis Presley's best song ever for you ? For me it is Amazing Grace



    On his last days alive...



    Funny moments



    For the real fans :



    Happy celebration!

    go to www.XaviantHaze.blogspot.com for some info about how Elvis' death was most probably faked (as well as most probably Michael Jackson's)- all I can say is read the provided info then make up your own mind-

    Haze is co-author of the book "The Suppressed History of America"-

    stay well all-

    Larry

    My dear friend, for me Presley brought an excitement to singing, in part because rock and roll was greeted as his invention, but for other reasons not so widely reflected on: Elvis Presley had the most beautiful singing voice of any human being on earth for every generation born in the 50s and 60s.
