elvis8138  The King.  Born in Tupelo, MS.  His name means ‘all wise.’  He was 6’1”.  He had blue eyes.  His shoe size was 11D.  His blood was O positive.  He loved peanut butter and banana sandwiches.  He made music and made movies.  He changed everything.  John Lennon said, Before Elvis there was nothing.  I know that’s not true, but I know what he means.  He had many influences and influenced many people.  He had a lot of admirers.  Some people thought he was the Devil.  Some still do.

About Ted Ringer

I am a writer, artist, and listener. Great music is everywhere and has no limits. Some of it is well-orchestrated and some is short and sweet. It can spring out of a moment of deep feeling or result from long periods of development. Music is communication, inspiration, and a million other things. This blog wants to share the wealth and keep toes tapping.
