Phantom Tollbooth Writer, Dr BLT: Remembering Elvis on this, the 30 Year Anniversary of his death

The day has arrived.  It's the 30-year anniversary of the death of Elvis, King of rock 'n' roll.  I'll never put a mortal above the King of Kings. John Lennon gave the appearance of putting himself above the King of Kings and paid for it, dearly. But notwithstanding the King of Kings, there is, was and will always be, only one king---The King of Rock n Roll---Elvis Presley.

No man has ever touched the hearts and souls of people of all ages across the world in the way that Elvis did.

Let's hear some of your memories of Elvis and/or his music. Let's hear some of your own personal reflections in the comments section below.

Only One King

there's only one Blue Suede shoes
only one Graceland too
there's only one king
there's only one king
there's only one Heartbreak Hotel
only one king
if you couldn't tell
there's only one king
only one king

well
singers are a dime a dozen
and the same goes for
guitar pickers too
but there's only one king
only one feelin' he would bring
only one king
only one king

there's only one
swivel of the hip
only one rebel's curled up lip
only one king
there's only one king
there's only one man
who captured souls
only one king of rock n roll
only one king
only one king

well
singers are a dime a dozen
and the same goes for
guitar pickers too
but there's only one king
only one feelin' he would bring
only one king
only one king

at 17 I moved to California
from Canada
mid-August don't you know
I woke up 'neath
in a hammock 'neath
a palm tree
when I heard
the news
on my transistor radio


well
singers are a dime a dozen
and the same goes for
guitar pickers too
but there's only one king
only one feelin' he would bring
only one king
only one king
