Thank you, thank you very much

Sometimes as a blogger you just have to sieze the moment. I managed to snap this one just as the traffic light turned green, while on my way home this evening - so please pardon the dirty windscreen.

It is almost 30 years ago that Elvis died - yet his memory lives on. I still enjoy his music, but I cannot understand this type of "hero" worship, but then I guess it is our differences that add spice to life.

Any other Elvis fans out there?

Got to love the fans! I've seen some over the top fans of Nascar drivers too.

I like the songs at the time but I can not say I was much of a fan. I see much the same over here as well.

I love the gull shots below as well.

You have now proven that "Elvis has left the building" ...

I was on holiday in Spain the day he died, and boy, did all the discos, nightclubs and everyone else notice it!

Thank you for nice comments.

He really was a good singer and I still like listening to his music but I cannot say I was of a fan.

Susanne, my first Elvis LP was Something for Everybody, which I got way back in about 1961. My collection of Elvis music went out with the demose of LP's. We have one DVD at the moment,which I do enjoy.

Jenty you can be excused for not being a fan, he was probably long before your time :) I agree that this is over the top.

Max-e said...

The Muse I often wonder how the brains of the fanatial fans are wired. I cannot understand that kind of hero worship.

Max-e said...

Tom I suppose he could not win us all over :) Did you have a favourite?

Max-e said...

RuneE, he definitely has. You got me thinking about where I was when he died. I was living and working in a war zone at the time and only heard about it some time afterwards.

Max-e this is so true, and myself I still cannot believe how many Elvis impersonators are there too, lol. I think in Vegas you can get married by Elivs too, lol. Anna :)

...forgot to mention, I like Elvis too, but moderately. Anna :)
