A Tribute to The King

by Tony Whitaker

That's all right mama
hips unfolding rock and roll


Author's Note: My tribute to "The King". I lived in Memphis in 1970-71 and had the chance to shake his hands through the gates of Graceland. He was riding a Palomino horse and I still remember him saying "How y'all doin'?" to about 40-50 fans. I was only sixteen and wanted to see the man who had changed music forever.

Nice, Tony! Elvis died when I was 4, but I've loved him my whole life. It's hard to imagine what music would be like today if he hadn't walked into Sun Records 50+ years ago. :)
