Where were you when Elvis Died?


Recommended Posts

  I just remembered August 16th. is the 35th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death and wanted to know what you were doing when you heard the news.

  I was 6 years old and racing downstairs in the morning to watch cartoons on TV only to be shocked by my father who was watching a funeral on tv.

  "Elvis died" my mom said in a quiet voice and I asked "Who's Elvis", My Father responded by exclaiming "He was the king of rock & roll".

Enough about me, where were you when you found out Elvis Presley died?

I was 6 years old. I vaguely remember sitting on my living room floor watching the news with my mom and dad. I think my mom was crying. I do remember that my aunt was devastated. Elvis was her U2. She went to the huge fan memorial outside Graceland when it happened.
