Happy 75th Birthday Elvis!

Today would have been Elvis Presley’s 75th birthday. I’m a big fan of his work. I’ll even admit to loving his films, even the really cheesy ones. Jailhouse Rock has always been my favorite. Elvis had his ups and downs in his life but remained an amazing performer through it all. You can even watch his ’68 Comeback Special and Aloha from Hawaii performances on DVD now.

I recommend the two part biography by Peter Guralnick, Last Train to Memphis: The Rise of Elvis Presley and Careless Love: The Unmaking of Elvis Presley, if you want to learn more about Elvis.

In honor of his birthday, I am posting one of my drawings of Elvis. Happy Birthday Elvis!
