The “Elvis Is Dead” 35th anniversary meme

I wouldn’t mind: If My Blue Moon Turns To Gold Again

When I first started this blog, I would periodically fill out this questionnaire, or one like it for various musicians. I remember specifically doing one for Frank Sinatra. Since it’s the 35th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death, and I’ve probably said all I have to say about him, I’ll do this piece which is actually somewhat similar to the one I did back in 2006, so I needed to find a few NEW titles! Thanks to SamuraiFrog who recently did this in honor of the Beach Boys.

I'm a librarian. I hear music, even when it's not being played. I used to work at a comic book store, and it still informs my life. I won once on JEOPARDY! - ditto.

  1. I was born in 1956, and by the time I was old enough to be aware of such things I automatically considered Elvis to be some old guy from the past, like George Washington or Adolph Hitler. As I was growing up I don’t recall anybody my age giving a damn about Elvis or his music, he was someone that old people (ten years older or so) talked about. So, when all of Elvis’ now elderly fans die off, will anybody give a damn about him anymore?

  2. Given the number of people at Graceland this year, I’m guessing Elvis, like the Beatles, will live on.
