He Was the King!

Just sittin' here at my keyboard tonight, and I felt a little tap on my shoulder. Turning my head slightly, I managed to catch a hazy blur. No one in the room except me and my little electronic friend, PC, right?


Elvis stopped by for second and said he wanted to hear that old rocker guy's tribute to himself ( I knew he meant Neil Young). So, Elvis, just for you:

And though you didnt' request it, here's a couple of more tributes I bet you'd have chuckled over during your bodily days on Earth:

Gillian Welch's "Elvis Presley's Blues"

And Irish Elvis song courtesy of Richard Thompson:

And even a tribute from The Boss Bruce:

Thank you, thank you very much. ;)

Aw-w-w, c'mon! Elvis just lucked out with a lot of big time Colonel promotion and family/hangers-on commercialization to keep the bucks rollin' in after he was gone. So, he could swing his hips and shock '50s parents. But he did make a certain type of music acceptable in certain parts of our country that had heretofore rejected it when sung by different kinds of people. Guess that's not his fault, but has always sorta stuck in my craw when I try to assess him as a singer. He is a performer and so was Liberace, and that's what makes a star of lots of folk.
