My birthday is Aug 31st - so not sure.....but I am bidding on a picture on ebay taken Aug 31st 1968 (a candid) that was on my 1 year old birthday.....lol....does that count?
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?
Can't find to many things on Aug 6.
Mine's easy, January the 8th is also my birthday.
Does anyone know where we can find info on this ? ?
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
I was born March 20`th 1974......... And as you all know its the exact date of his Memphis concert the best concert ever in Memphis.....
[Royalties come and go....... But there is only one man we always call THE KING
