The king of rock and roll is 77 today

Today is Elvis Presley's 77th birthday. Elvis is the iconic performer of the 20th century. He redefined what a singer was and what performance was. As a rock and roll guitarist and a keen rock and roll historian, I could write a million words about what he was, what he achieved and how good he was. However, there is no need. Just check this video out

I thought long and hard about what clip to post here. I chose this one, because the band is stripped down, the footage is grainy and the sound ain't great. Despite all of that, you still get the feeling you are watching something special. Happy Birthday Elvis. I hope it's a great party up in the sky for you tonight !
