ELVIS PRESLEY

Memphis Blues Ball October 9, 2010

I attended the 17th annual Memphis Blues Ball last night, and it was fantastic. It was to honor both Elvis Presley, who would have been 75 this year, and Jerry Lee Lewis, who turned 75 this year.

Elvis Week 2010

But I never toured Graceland during Elvis Week because it was too crowded especially when I could go whenever I wanted – and I did with my annual pass. My Elvis Week 2010 began on Thursday August [continue reading]

Elvis Week 2008

Elvis Week 2007 – the 30th Anniversary

Elvis Week 2007, the 30th Anniversary, was my second Elvis Week, but I feel like it was my first because I went to all of the events and I did the candlelight vigil for the first time – I skipped it on the 25th anniversary in 2002, my first Elvis Week. And I was visiting Memphis (not living [continue reading]
