Yes.....I would have to say that the entire town knows about Elvis and I. Like I've told you before...my town is a little-bitty town where everybody knows everybody. I remember when my kids were in school, even their teachers would ask them about "Mom and Elvis." :D:D

This area we're living in is loaded with Elvis fans. Yesterday at one of the nursing homes they celebrated Elvis' birthday by playing songs all over the building and were looking forward to a movie in the evening. They even went so far as to have an Elvis themed exercise session in which several little old ladies tried to shake as Elvis used to....must have been so cute to watch. This was told to me by my daughter who works there and she said they were adorable. :)

Also my two dearest lifelong friends in the world are also avid Elvis fans so I feel pretty comfortable being a wide open Elvis fan. Anyone who should poo-poo me for for being crazy about him and his music gets a smile and my back. :)

No,i wouldn't say say i'm a "closeted Elvis fan".And no,i dont have any friends that are into Elvis like i am.Most everyone i know...Knows i'm a big Elvis fan.Even my relatives who see me say "Have you seen Elvis lately? Or are you still into Elvis? My late uncle even used to call me Elvis ,or say"you look more like Elvis everytime i see you.They just don't understand,and i can't explain why i"m such a fan.Only to say i love his music,and admire him for his generousity.:king::clap:

My best friend's cousin is my Elvis buddy, though she's just 11 years old. Sometimes we give each other things, she gave me these collector's stamps and I got her a Elvis dvd and some posters.

My Elvis buddy (that doesn't belong to TCB-World) has to be my wife!! (y)

Actually, when I first met my wife, she didn't know much about Elvis. Now, she is a HUGE Elvis fan too!!! :D

TCB!

No, I don't have an Elvis buddy but my friends and family know that I am a fan.

For my birthday recently my friends threw me a surprise Elvis party. They all hired Elvis costumes, had life size Elvis posters and played Elvis music all night. It was great!

:D

I have two "close" Elvis friends that I've never met "in person".
Known them about 5 years now. The things we tell each other .....
personal and will always stay that way. :blush:

I've met many super nice people through the years and some "not so nice".
In person and on the Net. My whole family knows I'm an Elvis fan, my friends and even my doctor . I've discovered there's a lot of fans out here.
They're where I've gotten a lot of music, pictures,videos , etc. Elvis fans just love to share . (y)

my father was an Elvisfan as a kid. Now he can't be considered a real fan anymore, but he's still a great admirer of Elvis' music. So we both enjoy listening to Elvis music when we're together.

A guy that I know in my town is also an Elvisfan, but I visit him rarely.

01-10-2008, 01:04 PM
Oh yes, and my dad too is a big fan and we have long discussions about him. And my granddad, well to be honest, i have never seen a bigger Elvis fan yet :lol: he has LOADS of Elvis Stuff, and i ask him a question and he knows it, all about Elvis.

I'm not a closet Elvis fan by any means....I wear Elvis tshirts - have Elvis license plate on my car - rear window bumper sticker and have mostly Elvis cd's in my car and at work....Elvis all over my walls in my room.....I buy Elvis photo's off ebay (originals)....(oh and collect memorabilia such as the 68 Comeback Doll in leather, etc.)

However, I don't have any local friends who are as into him as I am - except this cute little 8 yr old girl I met thru Elvis - Aimee....I've shared some Elvis items with her to get her a good collection started..

My main Elvis friends are through here and a couple of Elvis yahoo groups I belong to...and my Elvis friends on myspace that seek me out....but most of my myspace friends are through here too....

Missy, you come out of that Elvis closet! You are missing out on all kinds of cool Elvis gifts!!

Oh, i forgot to mention..my Mother loved Elvis until he went to the Army.She said after he came out he wasn't the same.But she did say when she was 17 (in 1956)that he could put his shoes under her bed anytime.I said "Moma you're so bad" LoL.

I have never been a closet fan-I ran into an old high school pal (from one of the 4 high schools I attended) and after a few minutes chat he asked with a smile "are you still crazy about Elvis"? I was known for moving alot and my love of Elvis.
My aunt is a huge fan. My brothers are good fans. One has played music for 25 years in different bands-because of Elvis when you get right down to it.
He will tell you its because I had a band in the late 60s and early 70s-but I had a band because of Elvis- so in truth my brothers love of music is because of Elvis:D

My best Elvis friend is the one who went to Memphis with me shortly after Elvis died. She still likes E but is not as "ate up" as I am. Also, I have a neighbor friend who likes Elvis. Everyone knows I love E and don't understand it since he is gone.

01-11-2008, 10:32 AM
Well I've been an Elvis fan since I was a little girl, and everyone's always known about it, lol! I have actually had people who haven't seen me in like, 30 odd years come up to me and the first thing they've said is, "do you still like Elvis??" (YES!!!).

My daughter is nearly 4, she thinks Elvis is very handsome, and her favourite Elvis song is 'Tiger Man', which she sings to at the top of her voice!! I am not making this up, I have it on video!!!

I knew quite a few Elvis fans back in Sydney, but have only just recently connected with some here in Melbourne, mostly thanks to seeing ETA Max Pellicano's concerts.

The closet is no place for an Elvis fan, I say LOL!!!

I know a few people who admire Elvis but not what could be called Elvis fans by any stretch of the imagination... So I am all alone apart from my friends on TCB :'(

Everyone knows I'm a huge elvisfan. But my closest elvis buddies are people I met on the net, (to all my friends I love you all)

in real day to day life I don't have Elvis buddies....

Don't talk about Elvis that much either unless they explicitely ask and I never bother to respond on stupid questions either....

The only people I know who like Elvis are on this forum...hugs to all of you my Elvis buddies :hug:
There is also a kid at my school, he is into the Beatles...we often pretend to fight about who was better, Elvis or the Beatles. It's funny to think that some of you probably had this kind of fight for real, while we're doing it for fun now :P

I got into Elvis 30+ years ago because of friends.
I count all the people on these boards as my Elvis friends and I shout my allegiance loud and wide.
However, I only have one `real' Elvis buddy whom I keep in touch with via email etc.
Cheers

I am hardly a closet fan. There's always an Elvis cd in my car and there's an Elvis sticker on my car's rear windshield. I have several friends that I can talk Elvis with - one who saw Elvis in Houston at the Livestock show several times & there are more than a couple of co-workers who share my feelings for Elvis!

I'm 22 so most people look at me a little funny when I tell them that I'm an Elvis fan. But usually I can convince them to watch one of his movies, and then they usually get hooked.

My best Elvis buddies don't live in the same town as I do, but we meet in Memphis in Jan and August. When we get there it is like we never were apart. We email alot too. We've been buddies for at least 30 years (longer than some people can stay married). I have one buddy that we talk on the phone once or twce a week, all about Elvis. I'm reluctant to talk to new people about Elvis. Don't want to have to start screaming and cursing at them because they say something stupid.

Hi, chrissy. I'm curious when you recommend they watch one of his movies and it works, have you recommended specific movies (if so, which ones?) or do you just tell them to watch any and that does the trick? I would be surprised if the latter is the case; that's why I'm asking.

Most of my Elvis buddies are my TCB friends but my wife and my best friend are both Elvis fans and were before I was, actually. I'm perhaps more obsessive about it than they are though...OK, there's no 'perhaps' about it. :P

I find that Jailhouse Rock usually does the trick. Among the Elvis "converts", that's been probably the most popular. Although some of the ones that they like after they are hooked do surprise me.

Nope. No Elvis buddies. And there are only a couple people that know I'm a fan. Some people I wouldn't dare tell because I know what they would say. Don't get me wrong, I'm not embarrassed to be a fan, but I just get sick of having to explain why I llike him. People are so ignorant.:cursing:
