  1. Elvis got hooked on speed in the Army while doing night duty, as did Johnny Cash and millions of other servicemen. Ahhh yes – good old Uncle Sam and its war on drugs. As for the music of Elvis, anything he did before 1960 is great – anything afterward is usually mediocre. The Sun Sessions album is beautiful and timeless.

    Elvis was a black belt in karate, a martial art he also started doing while in the Army – for what it’s worth.

    This is actually the first time I’ve read an article about Graceland where I no longer feel I have to visit it. It seems one is almost obligated to buy some kitschy souvenir piece-of-shit to “prove” you visited Graceland. As if the tackiness of it is pure Americana….1 billion records sold?
