Great news!! This means the expansion plans will soon be announced, hopefully with renderings and layouts for all of us to see and know mroe about. I can't wait to hear what he's got to say about the near future of the Graceland area!!

And all of the questions will be pre-selected by EPE of course! This happens in Aug so that should give him enough time to read up on Elvis so he knows something about him!

Ooh goody! The Messiah is coming! Or is he really the Devil? Let's face it, who has a name beginning with 'X'. And does he know the first thing about Elvis? Will he allow the sale of rubber ducks to continue? Will he commission more rubber ducks? Could he name the couplings of the first five Sun singles? I'm not holding my breath...

Robert FX Sillerman is a fan and he once saw Elvis perform live in 1971 and it made him cry according to him. He has calso alled himsefl the "biggest Elvis fan in the world"! There's an old saying "don't judge a book by it's cover". The same should be applied to Sillerman.

I suppose it is only fair that he be allowed to "prove" himself but he's had plenty of time to do that. From what we've seen so far, it is not hard to understand why Elvis fans are so skeptical. I do hope he is an Elvis fan but he's also an Ali fan & owns American Idol. What does that tell you? Money!
