From: Elvis served 3rd Armored, Friedberg, West Germany
Hearts of Stone: Elvis Presley. 1955.
Always the King, and a good man I enjoyed meeting on two occasions.
Anything Elvis, anytime. Was 5 years old when I fell for his music. Remember going to the neighbor's for huge Christmas party, mostly adults/parents, the nice Southern lady (Ruth) had on "Blue Christmas" in the record player. I said, wow, who's that singing, he's so much different. She said, "Elvis". Said, wow, that's a cool name.
Fast forward, the next Summer, I goto a record with my pals. Bunch of hippies in the store. I ask, you got Elvis? Then said, yeah, you like him, he's over there kid. On top, Elvis in a suit, a piano, Gospel. Hmmm, I think. That's church stuff. Bought the album, must have played it 100 times that Summer. Love me the king and the King.
