    Paul McCartney was in Graceland Today!

    Paul McCartney is playing a concert tonight in the city of Memphis as part of his Out There! World Tour, as a many times self-declared hardcore Elvis fan, one from the original rock and roll generation of the 50's that was inspired to became a rocker because of him, Macca, who visited Elvis with the Beatles in '65 in L.A. but never ever been in Elvis famous Memphis home, has finally this Sunday, added his name to the list of famous fans visiting Graceland!

    Elvis Presley facebook posted this afternoon: "Who's ready to see Paul McCartney tonight in Memphis? Wishing you a great show and returning all of the love and respect shown today at Elvis Presley's Graceland".

    Probably more details on his visit will be published on Elvisnews tomorrow.

    Wonderful, Paul is a class act.
    Perhaps Paul was speaking as they took the graveside photo. I guess being a member of the most successful group in history has its perks since he is shown over the rail and holding Elvis' guitar.

    Yes, I was thinking get your little chubby fingers off of Elvis' guitar.

    Elvis is saying, I still can't get rid of those dam* Beatles.

    Everyone knows a Beatle couldn't and can't ever carry anything of Elvis'.
    Love Elvis...The Greatest

    As a youth I did not care for the Beatles, probably because of my love for Elvis music but as an adult I have grown to see how talented they were and how influential.
    Paul is living proof that you can find a balance in rock and roll and your life so you do not become a casualty, he is still a vital artist into his retirement years, still vocally and musically vibrant. Paul still loves to make music.
    He survived the storms of sudden explosive fame and wealth and found a balance....and his kids do not have to worry about financial problems of his estate-since hes worth over a billion dollars....but he and John Lennon were taken in the early years when they signed with a publishing company who actually owned their songs and the songwriting royalties for them, thats how MJackson got a good portion of the publishing rights to the Beatles biggest hits-he outbid Paul McCartney in the 80s for Pauls own works when they came up for bid.
    But McCartney learned his lesson and became quite a savvy businessman.

    I've never been a Beetles fan but I can't see that Paul did any harm to Elvis' guitar nor the grave. No doubt his status allowed him to do this and I'm sure he respected Elvis enough to be careful handling the guitar and stepping by the grave.

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Paul McCartney made his first visit to the one-time home of the King of Rock `N' Roll and left a gift behind.

    According to the official Twitter account of the former Beatle, McCartney dropped a personal guitar pick on Elvis Presley's grave and said it was "so Elvis can play in heaven."

    The lifelong Elvis fan toured Graceland, the Memphis mansion, on Sunday.

    He was in Memphis to play a show on the North American leg of his "Out There" tour.

    The show at FedExForum marked McCartney's first visit to the Bluff City in two decades.

    That's a classic duck face pose.

    Paul left a personalized pick on Elvis' grave which is why he was stepping over the railing-he said he wants to make sure Elvis can play guitar in heaven.

    I think that was a beautiful gesture by Paul, but it's duck season.

    I have heard on his twitter page, that he said he did not say that. He just placed the pick on the grave as a symbolic gesture. So I don't know if the media made that up or someone at EPE said that.

    It is like all else in life-the truth is usually somewhere in the middle, but it would not surprise me that a reporter is the one who came up with the quote.

    It's too bad that meeting between Elvis and the Beatles wasn't filmed, back then. I'm sure they had some interesting conversations that day.

    Cool Re: Paul McCartney was in Graceland Today!

    I saw him for the very first time this past November in Vancouver, and he mentioned having relatives here and it was like you were spending time with a really good friend!!!! This is in response to kpm.
