Does anyone seek to 'study Elvis'?
Over the past 6 years, Elvis Presley has become an obsession of mine. And yes, I've gone (and still go through) my Elvis phases, spending lots of money on 'anything Elvis'.
But lately I've sought to learn more about 'The King'. I don't just mean reading books (which I do all of the time) or watching documentaries (ditto), but really trying to learn about Elvis as one would learn 'American History', 'English Literature' or any other college course.
I find the many endless aspects of his life, and those things that surround and are connected to his life to be so completely compelling, and yet I feel as though I'm still some wet behind the ears Elvis fan who has yet to really 'know Elvis'.
Anyway, (didn't mean to be so wordy), but I'd love to hear anyone elses comments, suggestions or even their own stories of how they see Elvis as important a subject as anything that could be taught at Harvard.
