Elvis Presley’s birthday just passed, the man known as The King would have been 80 years old years old today. I’m sure fans new and old alike haven’t forgotten. Growing up, I had heard about Elvis; he certainly is a pop culture phenomenon.
My first real taste of a hardcore Elvis fan was the first time I stayed all night at Annette Elliot’s house in high school. Her mother, Gail, had a room in the house dedicated to Elvis and all her fan memorabilia she had collected over the years. I even remember cruising down Knox Street with Annette and her little sister Betsy in tow, with a husky voiced Elvis crooning Blue Christmas on her cd player during holiday break from school.
