Wednesday is "Elvis Presley" Day

I am a fan of the King of Rock and Roll. This is natural, because I am huge lover of anything musical. This love has serious roots in my life. In fact, I've always imagined my parents driving around town with the Beach Boys' "Endless Summer" 8-track playing while she was pregnant with me. One of these days long from now, I plan to do the same. But I digress. Today we're here to discuss the King of Rock and Roll.
  • Elvis Aaron Presley was born with a twin brother. His name was Jesse Garon and he died from complications during the birth.
  • He died August 16, 1977 due to an overdose.
  • Elvis was extremely spiritual. He read numerous volumes of spiritual laws including the Quran, the Torah and of course the Bible.
  • Elvis was raised in the Assembly of God church.
  • Elvis gave his mother a pink cadillac to symbolize his love and devotion for her.
  • His mother, Gladys would never realize Elvis's full potential. She died from a heart attack.
  • Elvis never overcame the depression from the loss of his mother. He spent the rest of his life trying to find someone to fit her mold.
  • Elvis has only been married once.
  • He married Priscilla Ann Beaulieu on May 1, 1967 and nine months later, to the day on February 1, 1968 they had a little girl named Lisa Marie.
  • Lisa Marie has given the King more royalty in the form of two grandchildren....with two more on the way. That is a total of four, pending the babies are born healthy.

Those are just a few facts. Hope you're having a good day!
