:: LONG LIVE ROCK ‘n’ ROLL ::
one of the things i’ve learned about the entertainment industry is > that money can NOT buy you everything.
being rich isn’t enough to get u into a certain Oscar party or hangin’ w/ a living legend. access is everything. sometimes i can’t quite wrap my head around the unique situations i get myself into.
recently the team from Elvis Presley’s Graceland came to L.A. + showed me some of the key pieces that are going on display this year. these items are in fact priceless. regardless of the astronomical amount of money ELVIS collectors offer > the cape + guitar you see me holding above are not for sale.
Graceland opened to the public nearly 30 years ago, 20 million visitors later > it is still a phenomenon. people flock from all over to stand in front of glass encased artifacts at Elvis’ home.
i want to thank the peeps at Graceland for a priceless (literally) opportunity > i got to hold Elvis’ Gretsch Country Gentleman Guitar (seen above) !!!
even living legends bow down. check Paul McCartney (above) who visited Graceland this week > and (snap!) also asked to hold one of the kings guitars.
artifacts from the king of rock and roll are now on display at two new exhibits in Memphis. including an AMAZZZZING studded cape (seen above) worn by Presley during the singer’s Aloha from Hawaii Concert in 1973.
up next for ELVIS? the 60th anniversary of rock and roll in 2014. LONG LIVE ROCk ‘n’ ROLL.
