    Seems like only yeasterday I was hearing about Elvis! He was only 42! I love a lot of his music, but his lifestyle didn't impress me. I think I enjoy his music more now than I did when I was hearing it new.

    His life got out of control at the end. So sad. I loved his music.

    I was 13 years old, and in a fabric store at the time when it was announced on a radio station the store was playing! One of those moments I'll never forget. Anybody else remember exactly where they were when they heard the news?

    I was with my mom driving to Montauk Point LI NY for a vacation/business trip. We were on Montauk Hwy listening to the car radio when it was announced the king of rock and roll died. I was 22.

    Elvis isn't dead. He works at our corner gas station selling lottery tickets.

    I was 21 and only been married 1 year. I think I was in the car driving to work. How sad that he died so young, and that those involved in his medical care couldn't prevent it.

    My brothers and I were in the living room talking and listening tot he radio when they said Elvis passed on. Our oldest brother was sound asleep after working the graveyard shift, woke up and said "who cares" and went right back to alseep. I mentioned this to him later, when he acted all shocked when they said on the news Elvis died. He denies ever saying it....lol

    I was 26 and had two washtubs full of green beans to can and it was very hot. Had to stop and cry for a hour. I loved him and his music. Hated the way his life ended, so sad.

    I was at work, and pregnant with oldest son...the entire office went silent when it was announced on the radio...
    I really cherish that I was able to see him in concert twice.
