Elvis


Well, thirty years ago I was sitting in the living room watching Gilligan's Island, when an announcer interrupted the show and announced Elvis Presley, the King of Rock 'n' Roll, was dead. My Mom was in curlers, getting ready to eat a baloney sandwich and couldn't finish it.
They played Elvis songs on a radio station non-stop for at least three days. It's easy to forget how big Elvis was. Three billion people watched his live Hawaii special (Correction: 1.5 billion. Also was first program broadcast via satellite). 300 gold records. Sideburns & jumpsuits. Big sunglasses. Pink Cadillacs.
So here I am takin' care of business... from a B&W photo. ArtRage2 & Photoshop. Thank you very much.
