33rd Anniversary of Elvis Presley's Death
Today marks the 33rd anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley. I am old enough to recall when he died and all the insanity that ensued afterward. Here are a couple of little mentions in honor of the anniversary of his death. Comedian Johnny Carson once quipped, "If life was fair, Elvis would still be alive and all the impersonators dead." Also, Larry Geller, who was Elvis's former hairstylist, was responsible for styling Elvis's hair for the sad occasion of his funeral. When setting about his task, he was startled to find that Elvis had half an inch of white-colored regrowth under his dyed black hair. Geller quickly improvised a touch-up job using a black mascara wand. Long Live The King!
