Elvis Today ... And Every Day!

Today, on August 16, fans all around the globe remember Elvis Presley. It's been 34 years since he died, and if anything he's as popular now as then.

The most memorable anniversary date of Elvis' passing I've had so far was during Elvis Week 2005 when I attended the Candlelight Vigil. It was an emotional experience to participate, walking up the driveway to Elvis' gravesite together with thousands of other fans, each of us carrying a candle in remembrance.

This year I'll remember Elvis Presley while on holiday, spending the day in a Danish cottage by the sea with my wife and daughter. I've actually prepared this post in advance, as there will be no Internet available. But I'll be sure to bring along my faithful iPod and enjoy Elvis' music a little extra on August 16.

Incidentally, August 16 was also the date when I started my blog Elvis Today, four years ago. And it so happens that this is post number 400. So I'll celebrate that too, even if Elvis will be foremost on my mind.

Thank you for reading Elvis Today. And thank you Elvis, for always being there for me with your music. It means the world.
