Elvis Presley’s only child, Lisa Marie, passed away unexpectedly yesterday at age 54. While her father makes a brief appearance in It Happened in Memphis, the plot of that book takes place years before Lisa Marie’s birth.
Hi, everyone. Forty-five years ago today, Elvis Aaron Presley passed away. I’ve written before about what he meant to me as a musician. He’s even shown up in one of my books, the award-winning It Happened in Memphis. Today, I want to share a live recording (not very hi-fi, but it’s from 1956, when he was only 21 years old). This video shows not only his amazing voice, but his tremendous sense of humor.
