Elvis left the building 45 years ago.
I still remember where I was, who I was with when I heard the news.
I do as well. I was living in Macon Georgia. I was leaving work.I still remember where I was, who I was with when I heard the news.
It was huge news. I remember the newspapers the next day "The King is Dead". It struck me as odd that so much reverence was paid to man called a "King". I get the King of Rock and Roll label. It was almost like making him a deity. Contrast that with the response to John Lennon. FWIW, I was a big Elvis fan as a young boy but outgrew him as music changed in the 60s.We asked our server what was the biggest news in the US over the last six weeks. She thought for a few seconds and then said “oh yeah, Elvis died!”.
