Elvis never performed in the uk yet he was very popular. Even 35 yrs later after his death hes still quite popular. I do like alot of his music & my favorite is his 1969 hit "suspicious minds".

Default Elvis...

Also studied martial arts, And his name on his tombstone is partially incorrect. This is part of the reasoning for the "Elvis is alive" phenomenon, Along with an alias he used of "John Burrows" to check into hotels and the like. There was a real John Burrows who bought a plane ticket to Argentina shortly after Elvis' death announcement broke. Was not the real McCoy obviously.

I liked Elvis' songs when I was growing up in the '50's and 60's but like it even more now that I almost 70. He had a great voice and superb delivery.

Elvis was a natural blonde - he died his hair black. I think he is of part Cherokee ancestry. Also, he never cared that much for the taste of alcohol.
