    A fire broke out Saturday morning at the former home of Elvis Presley on Audubon Drive. Memphis Fire Lt. Wayne Cooke said the department responded to the home just after 7:30 a.m. The fire was under control by 7:52, he said. Fire personnel were still on the scene at 11 a.m. Cooke said he did not have an estimate on how much damage the house sustained. The cause was electrical, he said, and started in the wall between the living room and dining room. The home was unoccupied and undergoing renovations.

    Like Elvis, Donald Trump brings his own style to the stage, an energetic, in-your-face, New York style that drowns out the classic pop tunes of the day Rock & roll (R&R) exploded onto the music scene in the 50s and ignited a cultural revolution. New sounds with irresistible rhythms swept teenagers up in a whirlwind of passion. But parents of those excited teens weren’t so enamored with the new hip. In fact, they went from parental coaxing, to stern warnings, to banning the music altogether. But Rock & Roll was here to stay. Prior to Elvis, kids sorta, kinda listened...

    Ron Tutt (born March 12, 1938, Dallas, Texas) is a drummer who played concerts and recording sessions for a variety of rock artists from Elvis Presley to the Carpenters. Tutt auditioned for the TCB Band ("Taking Care of Business"), the Elvis Presley touring and recording band, upon the recommendation of TCB keyboardist Larry Muhoberac. Tutt's drumming incorporated cues from Presley's stage moves during the audition. Presley liked what he heard, and Tutt was thereafter a permanent member of the TCB Band. Tutt participated in Presley concerts and recording sessions until the death of Presley in 1977. The example of Ron Tutt's best drum work may be the studio recording on...

    Three-time NASCAR championship winning crew chief Ray Evernham recently visited Graceland to shoot a segment for hisVelocity show AmeriCarna about the last car Elvis drove before he died, a  1973 Stutz Blackhawk III. While he was there, the Graceland folks told him the vehicle he really wanted to see was tucked away in a warehouse out back.

    All of Hollywood’s jaws dropped when Actress Dolores Hart announced that she would be leaving Beverly Hills behind to enter the convent as a novice. To be fair, who could blame them? Her colleagues couldn’t believe this young actress – at the peak of her career with several box office hits under her belt – was going to “throw it all away!” Of course, we know that Dolores hart certainly wasn’t “throwing her life away!” Nevertheless, many of us secretly want to know what led her to make such a dramatic decision! That’s why Doug Keck is hosting a...
