Looking back as I re-tell the same, tired old stories about the time that I was able to spend with Elvis, I realize now that he was aware of his real job in this world. He had already rocked and rolled. He was box office gold at the movies. He had been a soldier, marching and strutting around Texas and Germany, keeping the free world free. He was the most famous person on the planet.
There was so much more to Elvis Aaron Presley. The burden of really knowing was obviously hard on this person we had come to recognize as the King.
