August 2, 2012 | Canteen Crew

Posted on 08/02/2012 6:02:49 PM PDT by beachn4fun

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale
of our military and our allied military
and the family members of the above.
Honoring those who have served before.

MUSIC NIGHT
To get you all in the mood
for the Saturday music thread
Fabulous FRiday presents

Elvia Aaron Presley
Born January 8, 1935
In Tupelo, Mississippi,

Father ~ 18-year-old Vernon Elvis and
Mother ~ 22-year-old Gladys Love Presley.

He is the surviving identical twin to Jesse Garon Presley (stillborn).

A cultural icon, he is commonly known by the single name Elvis.
He is often referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll"
or simply "the King".

Can't Help Falling in Love

Success

Starting in 1953, after being told for years
that he couldn't sing, Elvis got his start ~
"The session, held the evening of July 5,
proved entirely unfruitful until late in the night.
As they were about to give up and go home,
Presley took his guitar and launched into a 1946 blues number,
Arthur Crudup's "That's All Right".
Moore recalled, "All of a sudden,
Elvis just started singing this song,
jumping around and acting the fool,
and then Bill picked up his bass,
and he started acting the fool, too,
and I started playing with them.
Sam, I think, had the door to the control booth open ...
he stuck his head out and said, 'What are you doing?'
And we said, 'We don't know.'
'Well, back up,' he said, 'try to find a place to start, and do it again.'"
Phillips quickly began taping; this was the sound he had been looking for.

On January 10, 1956,
Presley made his first recordings
for RCA in Nashville.

On March 24,1958 Presley was inducted
into the U.S. Army as a private
at Fort Chaffee, near Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Presley joined the 3rd Armored Division
in Friedberg, Germany, on October 1.
Introduced to amphetamines by a sergeant
while on maneuvers, he became "practically evangelical
about their benefits"
While in Friedberg, Presley met
14-year-old Priscilla Beaulieu.
They would eventually marry after a seven-and-a-half-year courtship.

His Death

August 16, 1977

Since 1977

Presley has been inducted into four music halls of fame:
the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1986),
the Country Music Hall of Fame (1998),
the Gospel Music Hall of Fame (2001),
and the Rockabilly Hall of Fame (2007).
In 1984, he received the W. C. Handy Award
from the Blues Foundation
and the Academy of Country Music's first Golden Hat Award.
In 1987, he received the American Music Awards' Award of Merit.

Come on in and chill with the King.

My work computer has been reluctant for a couple weeks to post the Ping....I hit the post button, but it times out. Sometimes it takes 3 tries for it to post. No clue...but I won’t say anything because so many things are blocked now, but IT has let me have FR and my own sites for graphics. No fotki either, so while I’m still at work I can’t see most of the threads except for the words. (I bring my iPad to see your backgrounds and graphics.)

Tonight only took 2 tries. LOL!

Good night and sleep tight...((HUGS))

Originally they blocked everything. Since I don't go out to lunch, I asked if I could have a couple sites...nothing risque or bad. IT said OK...I told him FR was political and I spent my online time here. He said, "I know". They know where we are and where we have been. I'm a good citizen. LOL! I was gonna have to drag my laptop to work every day if need be.
