lose your dreams and you will lose your mind, ain't life unkind?


History In Pictures

Here I am standing at the microphone that Elvis and Johnny Cash and many others have used.

And then here I am KISSING the floor that Bob Dylan kissed which is the floor that Elvis' shoes were on. Oh, two in one! Pretty nice, eh?

This is the desk that Marion Keisker sat at. It's the front room of the studio. In 1953 this is where Elvis walked in and asked if he could record a song for three dollars for his mother's birthday. Marion is the one who recorded this one because Sam Phillips was out of town and she controlled all the recording equipment when he was out.

This is me at Jerry Lee Lewis' piano!

And this is in Graceland in Elvis' yard where his pool was. We saw footage of Priscilla and him swimming in this pool.

These are great! I'm impressed, those Sun Studio photos in particular, wow!
Heh, in the picture of you at the piano, it almost, almost looks like you could be wearing blue suede shoes! :)Look at how the camera picked up your shoes, Claire, it's kinda weird.
Elvis put blue suede shoes on you in that moment! :)
Thanks for the positive supoosrt at my blog, it means a lot!

Isn't it almost overwhelming to be places with a history that is so rich and important to you personally? One day a little girl will be saying, "This is where Claire-Eliza stood, at the piano of...and the microphone where...etc."
Make it happen.

First of all, thanks for dropping by and commenting. My dad went to Memphis for business and got me a shirt from graceland. Someday I would like to go there, so I am jelous. Nice, got two birds with one stone on the kissin' the ground thing. I almost saw Bobby at the pantages theatre here in LA, but it was sold out. I posted another review, so you might want to check it out. Keep on Keepin' on!

I was blown away by how small Graceland was.

Great pictures, specially the ones in the studio where Elvis recorded.

I think it's totally cool that younger people appreciate the "old" guys .... Zeppelin, Beatles, Cash, Elvis, etc.
