WHEW ! I thought I was losing it and now I know I'm not alone !
I'm on my FOURTH Elvis biography (in 4 weeks !!) and have another 4
or 5 coming in the mail. I know you cant believe everything you
read so I'm thinking that if a few of these books confirm each other
than at least that part of the story is more likely to be true than
I laughed at the wireless headset line - I bought an iPOD because
(a) I have too many CDs to carry around and hating leaving one
behind and then thinking "wow, I wish I had that third CD from
the "Walk a Mile in My Shoes" set with me and (b) my husband was
getting tired of hearing Elvis. So now I clip my iPod on, slap the
earplugs in, and walk around the house ALL DAY listening to him
(ok, occassionally I do listen to some other artists, but not that
often lately LOL). I've gotten good at lip reading so that I can
see what my husband is saying even when I can't hear him LOL !
I honestly don't know what happened at Graceland, but BOY did it
happen BIG. He was just one amazing guy (but probably not the type
I could tolerate in a long term relationship - I don't believe he
ever dealt well with relationships of any kind) - but his talent is
off the scales, and of course those good looks and southern charm
didn't hurt LOL
What I'd really love to get my hands on are unediting recording
sessions - to hear the chitchat, the laughter, the experiments, and
the stuff Elvis thought "wasn't good enough" and needed a retake.
What better way to get into his mind and heart ?
Thankfully I'm not alone in my obsession !!! I feel a little better
(not that I was going to change it !!).
