It Was(n't) 29 Years Ago Today
Elvis A(a)ron Presley passed away on this day in 1977. Or so the mainstream media would have you believe. (Notice the curious use of the word “apparently” above.) Everyone who knows anything knows that the King still lives upstairs at Graceland. That’s why you’re not allowed up there during the tour. Elvis, wherever you are, hope you’re enjoying some well-deserved peace and quiet. Anyway, dead or not, I recommend everyone listen to the Sun Sessions (also released as the 2 CD Sunrise), some of the greatest music recorded by anyone ever. TCB.
