Remembering Elvis

Elvis Aron Presley was born on January 8th, 1935 in one of the poorest sections of Tupelo, Mississippi. Elvis was born a twin. His brother Jesse Garon died at birth. Elvis' parents Vernon Elvis Presley ( a farm worker) and Gladys Presley (a sewing machine operator) were just barely able to get by on the money that they earned. Elvis was raised in a strict manner.He was taught to say "sir" and "Ma'am" and to stand when an adult entered the room. Elvis first became fascinated by music while attending the "First Assembly Of God Church" located in Tupelo, Mississippi.

Elvis made his first record at the Memphis Recording Service. It cost him $4.00 to make his first demo. After that first demo the following records were recorded July 5th thru July 7th, 1954 "I love you because", "That's alright Mama", "Blue Moon Of Kentucky", "Tennessee Saturday Night", "Satisfied" and "Harbour Lights"

July 12th, 1955 "I Forgot To Remember To Forget" and "Tryin' To Get To You"

I was nine years old when Elvis Presley died on August 16th, 1977. I can remember that day as though it were yesterday. Don McLean wrote and sings a song titled "American Pie" (recently Madonna remade the song ........ sorry but it is not as good as the original.) McLean wrote that song referring to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens & The Big Bopper , all were tragically killed in a plane crash. August 16th, 1977 was the day the music died for myself and millions of others. Elvis sang many songs, made many records and acted in many movies. His records can be listened to and his movies can be viewed over and over. However, no one can attend an Elvis concert. To see the "KING" perform live and capture his audience.
