I was at work , I was the manager of a bakery store and was ringing out a customer when I thought I heard over the store radio, "ing of Rock in Roll dead at 42"... I hoped I had heard wrong, or maybe it was anyother rock pioneer(as many claim to be the King) I finished with the customer and told my clerk I was going to the desk, the phone was ringing before I entered the office. It was a former employee asking if I had heard. I said Yes and knew then he was gone. I got a total of 4 calls in an hour all asking if I knew. I went home and watched all the news you could back then. (No CNN nor cable all news networks) It was a horrible time.
