I remember the day Elvis died.  I came home from work and my babysitter told me he had died.  My most favorite singer was gone and I was devastated.  I still love his music to this day.

i hate people who have never listened to elvis yet claim instantly that the crap they listened to is somehow better... they all use stupid excuses like "he's fat" or "he died on the toilet" really stupid things to say about the greatest music legend ever.

I was so devastated when the greatest entertainer of all time died.  To this day I still get "goose bumps" when I look at different shots of him.  He was so handsome and talented.  No matter what great talent appears in the years ahead no one will ever be able to fill his shoes (blue suede or otherwse)!  I still love him.
I personally find the impersonaters offensive in their so called tributes to Elvis......there will never be another Elvis! They are like maggots riding on his shirtales looking for their 15 minutes of fame. Yuk!

Yes, He was always GREAT....   I still adore him and have all kinds of things around the house from him... I want to go on a Elvis cruise this next year...  Has been a blast  every year , I have heard...   He sure was special and treated his MOM so GREAT....

It is a sin, yes, a sin to blacken the name of someone dead. It is Written that they are not here to defend themselves and so it is not to be done. This is a sickening defamation (the caloric comparison) with nothing but malice to back it up. Shame on your editors & contributors. May they gain 75 lbs., immediately. Elvis is King!

You can tell that the people who run google are either kids or art fags. They will put up the stupidest **** on google home page like someone's birthdaywho has been dead for 200 years that nobody knows who the hell they are or what the hell they did. But, when it comes to Elvis's 35 anniversity of his death there is NOTHING ON THE HOME PAGE!!! WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THAT!!??

Elvis was a Heinz 57! Proof that mingled people rule - naturally, as he had a little bit of all of us in him. Through his mother he shared not only British blood but Jewish and Cherokee (and only God knows for sure how many other lines) which is why he wore a crucifix, a Star of David and the le chaim medal. He was proud of all he was, knowing Creator makes no mistakes.
