Did you know that there are several exceptional books about Elvis, onstage and off, authored by Alanna Nash – Sandie Stevens – Members of Elvis’ infamous Memphis Mafia (i.e. Marty Lacker, Billy Smith, Red West, Sonny West, Joe Esposito, Jerry Schilling, Charlie Hodge, Lamar Fike, etc.) & Sandi Pichon among others?
Did you know that Elvis wore lifts in his shoes so that he would be six foot or slightly over?
Did you know that Elvis was self taught to play the guitar and piano?
Did you know that Elvis had a dental cap on his front teeth?
Did you know that Elvis swallowed his tooth cap during filming of Jailhouse Rock and had to have a medical procedure to retrieve it?
Did you know that there were, excluding other movies which Elvis disliked due to the lack of quality of script and/or being repetitive, two movies Elvis made that he would never watch and never allowed to be played (even if it came on TV) anywhere near him? The movies were Jailhouse Rock due to the fact that his female co-star Judy Tyler died just after filming completed in an automobile accident. The other was Loving You as Elvis’ beloved mother, Gladys Love (Smith) Presley, was a part of the audience.
DId you know that Elvis was never nominated for a Grammy award other than the three he received in the Gospel category?
Did you know that the total number of records Elvis sold has never fully been audited/confirmed a fact that greatly annoys Elvis Presley fans, including this one, dating back to the 1970’s?
Did you know that, contingent on your comments and sharing on social media sites, that there will be more “Did you know Elvis Presley” posts in the future?
Take care and may God bless you.
