Elvis has left the building

Elvis Presley died on this day in 1977. He was 42. Had he lived, he'd be 73 now.

But he left early. His way.

Looking at some of the aging rock stars of today, I sometimes have to wonder if checking out early might have been the best thing for Elvis. Somehow I just couldn't see him being 73 at all.

Yeah, a 73 year old Elvis probably would weight about 400 pounds.

I was surprised to learn that Babe Ruth died on the same date, though in 1948, when he was 53. If he were still alive, he'd be 113!

I remember! I was on an exchange trip in Germany, he was always popular there. The father of the family said 'Elvis ist tot'.
