I was surprised at the number of fans of Elvis, that were not even born yet, when he died. Many of them learning about him from their parents and grandparents.

Even having died over forty years ago, he's still one of the most popular performers of all time.

Sorry, didn't ever really get down with his music because Gilgondorin wasn't born 500 million years ago. :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol:

It's all cool. Everyone has different musical interests. I just happen to be a huge fan of his and have been for many, many years now.

One thing I noticed about Elvis, that his singing and style changed a bit after the 1968 Comeback Special. He added way more instruments being used in his live performances, as well as several groups of back-up singers. He also was picking much better song material to sing and record, and it seemed his voice was maturing and getting much better.

Do yourself a favor, find America One News Network (OANN) on your cable carrier. 208 on Uverse. News without the Network BS or bias

BLM

LOSER
MOVEMENT


So PLEASE explain to me how they think going around vandilizing and defacing property will get people to SUPPORT their cause.


Only makes me support the need for more jails to put their ignorant uneducated unamerican asses in.

I think that's why support for the BLM is dropping rapidly from what I have been seeing in the news. Even among the black communities. I think they are seeing through the lies and deception.
