|On this day in 1977, the King, Elvis Presley, died. Many people believe he never really died. He simply went away. His influence on music is legendary; his voice is ethereal and haunting. His hipswaying, body-shaking movements are memorable and can still excite the heart of a woman who was young and alive when he took the stage in the 1950s.
His home, Graceland, is a sacred place. People from all over the world make pilgrimages to the final resting place of the King.
