  1. I was two then. I was five when i fell in love with him. The first time i went to the movies Debbie. Have a big collection of Elvis things. Loved going to Memphis, to Graceland, Heartbteak Hotel. Sun studios.

  2. Sorry it is only as I gotten older that I have appreciated how good looking and talented Elvis was, when I was younger I was more interested the Beatles and The Beach Boys and the many other good groups that were around at that time
