August 16, 1977

It's the anniversary of Elvis' death today. While we ponder the question, "is he really dead?" (you can find some interesting/crazy arguments, depending on your POV, here:, you just know I'm going to take this opportunity to share some more photos from the Elvis Festival in Collingwood a few weeks ago and ask a few questions of a different nature.

What I really want to know is, if it was raining, would he wear a plastic poncho?? Maybe, if he wanted to keep that gold lame jacket in tip top condition. And maybe not.

Would Elvis' mother get a tattoo similar to this one, like this mother of an Elvis tribute artist did? (face cropped to protect this woman's identity but I'm guessing she was at least 60 years old).

You can read more fun facts about Elvis (such as, he shares a birthday with David Bowie and allegedly fell in love with Elizabeth Montgomery of "Bewitched" fame when they starred in a movie together, but she was married to Gig Young at the time, so nothing came of it) at this location:
