Today Vixens we celebrate the 80th birthday of the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis. This man did it all: sang, danced and acted (what is referred to today as a triple threat). But what we are indebted to him for most of all is bringing rock and roll music-complete with country, R&B & gospel roots plus the songwriting geniuses of Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller-into mainstream America.
There is nothing I can write about this man that has not already been written, so I will not bore you with words other than these: Thank you, Elvis Aaron Presley, for the enormous gift you gave and left us. We are deeply indebted and grateful.
Here is a link to a YouTube montage clip of His Royalty performing one of those Leiber & Stoller gems, “Hound Dog“. Pay homage to the King!!!
