Everyone knows who this handsome fella up there is.. Surely?!
Elvis Presley is someone who I’ve always had floating round in the background of my childhood and adult life. My family have always been massive Elvis fans so I have grown up listening to his music and I absolutely love it! I always have these memories of my Grandad and Dad singing in the car as we drove around on family days out, singing to his music and sometimes even singing to one another!? And these are just a few of my fondest family memories from my childhood.
But, on this day August 16th 1977, it was announced to the world that Elvis Presley was dead. He died in Memphis Baptist Hospital at 3:30pm aged just 42.
This broke so many peoples hearts across the world, he was so many peoples icon and they could not believe he had gone. And 42 is no age to die at, not at all. It is incredibly sad to think we lost such a talented man at such a young age and even 39 years on now some people still find this a hard thing to accept. RIP Elvis! The King of Rock and Roll! ❤
