Elvis the King?

On this day (1/8) in 1935, Elvis Presley is born in Tupelo Mississippi. Elivis, of course, would go on to be the King of rock 'n' roll. Elvis would be 71 if he hadn't died in 1977... Also on this day (1/8) in 1973, Elvis sues wife Pricella for divorce. Some birthday present, huh?? They were maried in 1967. And yet another: on this date in 1993, the US Post Office issued the Elvis commemorative stamp. At the then normal rate of $0.29, the stamp featured the "young", 50's era Elvis, rather than the later "jumpsuit" version...
