I remember ELvis movies, that was in the day when movies were fun, nice entertaining, just before they become full of blood, shootings, rape, drugs and anything else that elevates ratings. Elvis may go down in history as the King of Rock n Roll, but he also had good family values to the public. Buelah Davenport Indiana

The Hawaiian concert. Tiffany Phillips Las Vegas, NV

I'm still a young, whipper-snapper so I never really had the chance to see Elvis in person. I'm still amazed at the stage presence The King had. I hope they never stop playing his songs and videos, becuase they just don't seem to ever become what some refer to as "old-music". The only live Elvis I met in person is of Indian (India) descent! So, The King is still loved worldwide I believe. If Elvis were alive today he'd be singing about anti-drug addiction songs & Love & Rock N Roll. Larry Strehl Tampa

I remember his kindness towards people who didn't have much! In his generosity he gave a new caddilac to a person he didn't even know who needed transportation. he felt he owed his fans everything even when he wasnt feeling well. He didn't shirk his military duty like the person who called himself "The Greatest" I think Elvis was not only the king but "The Real Greatest' because he led by example. Stephen T Kurtek III Pottsville / PA

While I was fortunate enough to see Elvis many times, the first is always the best - and the only time I saw him in Vegas. It was August of 1970, on the last leg of our honeymoon. Maybe it was because we were honeymooners, we were taken to a front table and we were only a few feet away from the King. Nothing will top that experience. He was still young, wild and The King. George Volk North Brunswick, NJ

Elvis always was & still is the most phenomenal performer ever. His music & songs always touched the heart of the mood happy or sad. We never saw him in person but did see all of his movies and performances on tv shows. Thankfully we can still hear his music today thanks to all the recordings and tapes. When he died we felt like we lost a family member. He really is The King. no one can ever top him. fran moore simcoe, on, canada

I remember the first 45 I bought was Elvis's "Houndog" and "Don't be Cruel". I remember sitting in front of my black and white tv watching Elvis on "The Ed Sullivan Show" with my sisters screaming so loud I could hardly hear him sing. I remember watching some of his fun movies, with plenty of great songs, and an occasional laugh. I never saw him live on stage, but enjoyed listening to his great voice, and watching him whenever he was on TV. It was a shock when he died, Long live Elvis. Arthur T. Arsenault Sunrise, Florida

In 1966 Elvis performed at the Houston Stock Show and Rodeo. My then employer had a display booth showing some of the then "latest" technology in communications along with some proposed futuristic devices. Elvis was fascinated by technology and came by to view our exhibit. He asked many questions and was genuinely friendly to all of us. He was not at all aloof and in many ways almost shy. Basically he was a nice guy, not at all like so many of today's outrageously self-important stars. Arno Haecker San Antonio,Texas

Its funny sort of. i was born in 47, still living in New Haven and I remember across the street was a movie house. When his first movie came there everyone was excited and wanted to go. Even my parents. The funny part of it is that I remember saying aloud and to myself that whats all the excitment about. If all these old people like him hes not for me. and being honest I didn't grow up being a fan and am still as the years have gone by not a huge elvis person. Weird huh?? bet I'm alone on this. Ralph Hamden CT

Bill Randle, a Cleveland disc jockey, produced the first commercial film os Elvis performing in a concert. The filming took place on Oct.10,1955 at Brooklyn High School's auditorium. The Rock & Roll Hall of fame commemorated this by installing a plaque at Brooklyn High. Even this early in his career, Bill Randle predicted that Elvis would be the biggest star in America. The concert was a hugh hit but not many people outside of Brooklyn know what a boost this was to Elvis' career. Mary Lou Drdek Brooklyn, Ohio

Although I was too young to experience Elvis in person, I will forever remember his presense. He has won me over as being an increadable man with whom everyone could idolize. Everything preformance I have ever seen from reruns is amazing!! If I had one wish, it would be to expereince Elvis Live!! Often I think about how wonderful it was for the past generations to live through such a large memeber of pop-culture history. Eric M. Camilleri Hartland/ Michigan

Memories of Elvis for me relates to the first love of my life giving me a black and white portrait of Elvis. I remember thinking I was the only one in the world with his glossy photo. The song "Love me Tender" will always be in my heart. My first love, my love of Elvis, and my love of just being there when he was the "King". Rosalind Dyke St. John's, Newfoundland Canada
