Died on this date:

Elvis Aaron Presley-The King of Rock & Roll-August 16, 1977 (Age 42)
Volumes have been written on the influence of Elvis on the evolution of popular music so I won't presume to add anything here other than I loved Elvis's music from the first time I heard it when I was 6 years old. Heartbreak Hotel was the first record I ever asked my mother to buy for me. So for my mom who died one year and four days ago and who loved Elvis most when he sang gospel here is The King singing Amazing Grace.
