The King is dead; long live the King

elvis.jpg30 years ago today, Elvis Presley died.

My memories of Elvis are inextricably intertwined with the memory I have of my late brother Bill playing “Hound Dog”on his guitar. Oh how I loved, at the tender age of seven, to sit at my idol’s feet — Bill was fourteen at the time — and listen, enraptured, as he sang and played that Elvis golden tune on his beloved guitar.

Bittersweet memories.
