    Key days in Elvis' life that landed on your birthdate

    Looking at Getlo's "Holy Grail" thread reminded me of two historic days in EP's life that landed on my birthdate, which is on Oct 3, not giving the year!

    The first being Oct 3/1942, a seven year old Elvis singing Old Shep at the Mississippi-Alabama Fair and Dairy show.

    The second, Oct 3/1977, the day Elvis In Concert was shown on tv!

    What are some key moments in Elvis' life that happen to fall on your birthdate?

    Edit : I found this December 16, 1961: The soundtrack to Blue Hawaii reaches #1 on the album charts, where it will remain for 20 weeks. With sales of 2 million, it is Elvis Presley’s best-selling album to date

    Obviously i weren't born then. But my birthday is December 16th. I guess i am his good luck charm

    January 6, 1955 - Elvis performed at Fair Park, Lubbock, Texas
    January 6, 1956 - Elvis performs at Hi School, Randolph, MS
    January 6, 1957 - Elvis makes his 3rd and last appearance at the Ed Sullivan show. He's only filmed from his waist up.
    January 6, 1961 - Elvis signs a renegotiated contract with Hal Wallis for 5 films (Blue Hawaii, Girls! Girls! Girls!, Fun In Acapulco, Roustabout and Paradise Hawaiian Style).

    That is all I found so far.
