Today, August 16 1977, Elvis died. Yep "The King" passed on. His influence on Rock 'n Roll since his appearance during the 1950s can't be denied!

There's a documentary film just out about him called "The King" which starts soon... Watch for it on a big screen near you!

I'll add both Shuttle losses, Kennedy assassination, MLK, RFK, I can probably think of others that I knew where I was.

Easy Cy, easy... Ya might wanna limit yourself ta one at a time, since there is NO prize for reporting multiple deaths as coming in threes. Nope! Ya might consult with the Splooge Brothers about BJPC rules. Which reminds me, haven't you already won twice before?

"Bye Bye Miss American Pie",

Drove my Chevy to the Levy,

But, the Levy was dry.

Them good ol boys were drinkin Wiskey and Rye,

Singin "This will be the day that I die".

Well too bad about Peter Fonda. I always liked his "Ulee's Gold" role. Opposite his dad in that one. One of his best. Almost got him an Oscar. Jack Nicholson in "Easy Rider" was his best ever. Hopper just played himself. Stoned the whole way...

Just one year ago they took one of our sweetest, finest voices who'll never be forgotten... Aretha. The "Queen" of soul!

Helluva loss around the world. That song "Respect" was written especially for Aretha by Otis Redding, another great voice!

Otis wrote that song about being on tour and coming home and wanting a little respect from his wife. Didn't have anything to do with Aretha but when Otis heard her version, he said she'd made it her own.
