Happy Birthday, Elvis! The King would’ve been 85 today. What would an 85-year-old Elvis Presley be like? What kind of a person would he have become in 2020?
I feel cheated sometimes that I’m too young to have experienced what life was like when people like Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, and JFK were alive and very relevant. Watching old videos, especially of Elvis, makes me think this guy was a superhero.
Last time I was in Memphis, which was when I was driving to Virginia Beach, we stopped in Memphis and tried to visit Graceland only to find out it costs $45 bucks a person! I love Elvis, but I’m not going to pay $45 bucks for my children to keep nagging me to leave. One day, Graceland, one day. However, I did check out the gift shop.
Carly and I have talked about it before, the group of guys, when at their highest peak, made women pass out from their mere existence. Can you imagine having such powers? You know what I’m talking about, right? Guys like Sinatra, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, and Elvis had voices and moves that made women pass out and go crazy.
Take a look at this old clip from Elvis Presley’s 1968 comeback special. That’s a beautiful leather outfit he has on. Where can I find one of those?
