I wasn't even a glimmer in my mother's eye but that didn't stop me from discovering Elvis Presley and his music (as well as the great music of many other artists). Elvis Presley was pronounced dead today 25 years ago at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee at 3 p.m. Eastern Time. It's very impressive that he's still selling records and making the charts (even though a recent certain remix of a certain song angers a few folks) even 25 years after his death. Talk about staying power! Whether you like or dislike Elvis Presley's music, there is no denying his meteoric impact and influence on pop culture and music. Even John Lennon himself remarked that "without Elvis, there would never have been The Beatles." Let's all have a few moments of silence for The King.
