Like last year, I just wanted to start a thread to remember Elvis Presley - a country singer really, who eventually became the renowned "King of Rock And Roll".
I was working at Disneyland in the Plaza Pavillion kitchen when the news broke on the radio. It was about 2:25PM on a Thursday afternoon as I recall.
All the cooks just dropped their knives or whatever they were doing. Same for the potwashers, the girls going back and forth from the front line, Tahitian Terrace crew members.
After about 30 seconds I started to put some food I'd prepped for that night in one of the walk-in refrigerators.
At which point one guy looked at me and said something like...The King just died, and all you can do is put your pork away.
Again, favorite songs and memories of Elvis are welcome.
From Early Elvis my favorite is...I Can't Help Falling In Love, With You...
Late Elvis...one of the great songs of all time...Suspicious Minds.
