The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll Lives.
The Elvis songs are still popular and the Rock ‘an’ Roll music will live forever. Where did the term Rock ‘an’ Roll originate, I don’t think it had anything to do with ships on the ocean. It was more rocking and rolling around in bed.
Elvis with those gyrating hips would suggest that too.
That is probably why parents got up tight about Rock ‘n’ Roll in the 50s. The young innocently accepted it without question as good fun.
The roots of rock an roll originated from rhythm and blues. Bill Haley and The Comets, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis made it popular in the 50s. The movie Blackboard Jungle used Bill Haley’s Rock Around the Clock than Rock ‘n’ Roll got established. When Chuck Berry got in on the act with his brand of Rock ‘n’ Roll sky was the limit.
Elvis was the most spectacular of them all he was acknowledged as
The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
Some say he never died in 1977 and I agree. I saw Elvis in Las Vegas and after the show he signed Pauline’s souvenir photo of him, that was in 1991. I have also seen him at the Coolangatta’s Winter Sun Festival, 2008.
Unfortunately he lives only in his songs and his impersonators. Some impersonators are good like the one in Las Vegas others leave a lot to be desired.
To assess if someone can rise from the dead we should ask our self. How many people have we seen arise from being dead. Then count how many times we have been lied to or been misinformed. We can then decide to believe which ever we have experienced the most of.
Sometimes we believe because that is what we would like. The human mind prefers to accept what is palatable. Life after death is a nice thought but you are never going the see the real Elvis Presley alive.
