"My music appeals to teenagers because it's strongly emotional. When rock-n-roll dies out another type of emotional music is going to take its place. Then I can sit on my back porch at Graceland and remember the good ol' days."
Little Known Facts
As if millions of Elvis' fans did not already know it! Elvis Presley is officially The King! Recently BMG audited worldwide sales of all Elvis song titles, dating back to 1956.

By comparison The King's nearest contenders are the Beatles with 41 titles, The Rolling Stones with 39 then Barbra Streisand and Elton John with 37 a piece.
The Weird And Wonderful
Just months after the Elvis Stamp was released on January 8, 1993, Graceland was sued by a crazed fan who claimed he contracted throat cancer after licking hundreds of Elvis Stamps.
