Happy Birthday Elvis!

January 8, 1935 - August 16, 1977

"I ain't no saint, but I've tried never to do anything that would hurt my family or offend God...I figure all any kid needs is hope and the feeling he or she belongs. If I could do or say anything that would give some kid that feelings, I would believe I had contributed something to the world."
-- Elvis Presley (who would have been 75 today)

I loved his singing became his fan way back at the tender age of 10 or ll my aunt who died of lung cancer last year loved him and I caught the Elvis bug from her. I remember the funeral and everything like it was yesterday. The world lost a great singer back then. There will never be another KING.

I got to see him once, after his prime, but the voice and charisma were still there!
