Disc jockeys at St. Louis radio station KWK gave every rock ‘n’ roll record in the station library a “farewell spin” before smashing them all to pieces. Station manager Robert T.

Elvis Presley was originally scheduled to report for duty from the U.S. Army on this day. He was allowed a 60-day deferment so he could finish the film “King Creole.” He reported for his induction on March 24, 1958.

American disc-jockey Alan Freed died from uraemia at the age of 42. Freed called himself the “father of rock and roll”, appeared in the movies such as ‘Rock Around the Clock’ and Don’t Knock the Rock. His career was destroyed by the payola scandal that hit the broadcasting industry in the early 1960s. Initially interred at the Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York, his ashes were moved in 2002 to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, and were later returned to Freed’s family in 2015.
ABC-TV’s “Shindig!” welcomed the Rolling Stones, Kinks, Dave Clark Five, Petula Clark, Bobby Vee, Bobby Sherman, and Gerry and the Pacemakers.

One Hit Wonders John Fred and the Playboy Band started a two week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Judy In Disguise, (With Glasses)’, it made No.3 in the UK. The song was inspired by The Beatles ‘Lucy In The Sky’.
Elvis returned to American at 9.00 p.m. with the firm determination to record In The Ghetto about which he had doubts at first, but eventually was convinced the song could become a hit. He did 23 takes, which occupied most of the evening and he left at 4.00 a.m.

Following his newfound success as a country music artist Jerry Lee Lewis made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry.  Although Opry officials had directed him to play only country music songs and to keep his comments clean, Lewis eventually defied instructions by playing his classic rock ‘n’ roll hits and declaring himself “the rock & rollin’, country & western, rhythm & blues singin’ motherf—–.”
January 20, 1974

Elvis put down a deposit of $75,000 on an impounded Boeing 707 but the deal fallsl through. The previous owner had been Robert Vesco, the fugitive financier who had fled to South America after allegedly embezzling hundreds of millions of dollars from international investment firms. Buying his plane would involve some complicated wrangling with the IRS. And Elvis was warned about another complication: If the plane ever landed in any of the countries Vesco was establishing a base in, there was every reason to believe that he might try to seize it.

In April Elvis buys a Convair 880 Jet recently taken out of service by Delta Airlines for the then-substantial sum of $250,000. With complete refurbishing the total exceeded $600,000. He immediately rechristened it the Lisa Marie.

After hearing Don Kinney, a Denver television newsman, joking on the air about Elvis’ generosity and telling he wanted a car too, Elvis bought him a Seville. Don Kinney contradicts this and tells his story.
Meanwhile the vacation in Denver wasn’t a great success and Jerry Schilling quit for good, telling Elvis that “friendship is more important than the job”.
Felton Jarvis had arranged for Elvis to record at Buss Cason’s new up-to-date Nashville studio, Creative Workshop. Felton was confident that Elvis would feel at home there. The band was Elvis’ own, plus Chip Young on guitar and Randy Cullers on percussion. But just hours before the scheduled start, Joe Esposito called to say Elvis had not yet left Memphis.
Elvis didn’t attend because he could not get Ginger Alden to accompany him according to Memphis Mafia Members while in Ginger Alden’s book, she puts it down to Elvis having a cold (but, given that that really helped during the American Sound Sessions in 1969…) the Jungle Room sessions would be Elvis last recording session.
RCA would have to record concerts in hopes of new songs.

The Wake and Aftermath

1982 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism

1982
During an Ozzy Osbourne concert in Des Moines, Iowa, a member of the audience threw a bat onto the stage. Stunned by the light, the bat lay motionless, and thinking it was a rubber fake, the singer picked it up and attempted to bite its head off. As he did this, the bat started to flap its wings and Ozzy soon realized it wasn’t fake but in fact a living thing. After the show Ozzy was immediately rushed to the nearest hospital for rabies shots.

The Lisa Marie, the newest craft in Elvis Presley's small air fleet, is at Memphis International Airport on November 12, 1975, getting final touches before being put to use for touring. The converted Convair 880, formerly used by Delta Air Lines, is named for the entertainer's daughter. It was bought for $1 million and it took another $750,000 to fix it to his taste in Forth Worth, Texas. While not as elaborate as some reports have had it, the plane should be quite comfortable for the Memphian and his personal crew.

It has a galley with stove, refrigerator and coffee maker, a private bedroom with queen-size bed, a dining room with eight chairs, two sitting rooms, two bathrooms with gold-plated fixtures and a shower in one, plus 29 seats for passengers. It requires a pilot, copilot, flight engineer and stewardess. Elvis also will keep the Lockheed Jetstar (smaller plane at left), a 9-seater, for touring purposes. On tours, he will need to lease a third plane for back-up groups, equipment and wardrobes. The small propeller plane is not part of his ‘air force.’

Andrew Jackson Hotel, Nashville, TN, Thursday, November 10, 1955 – In his Nashville hotel room during the Country Music Disc Jockey Convention, Elvis Presley listened to a demo recording brought to him by songwriter Mae Axton. It was a song she’d co-written with Tommy Durden called “Heartbreak Hotel.”

Image result for Elvis Presley, November 10, 1957Image result for Elvis Presley, November 10, 1957
The shows were attended by more then 14,000 fans. one of the fans filmed parts of the concert in colour.
During the day, Elvis met with Press:
Speaking with a Southern slur and often punctuating his answers with ‘Sir’, Elvis freely admitted’, I’m pretty green when it comes to clothes. I don’t pay over $7 for a shirt and $10 for a pair of shoes… but I do plan to stock up on a Hawaiian outfit while I’m here’. Elvis wore a white knit sweater with a large rolled collar, a wine-colored sports coat and black slacks.
As for his traveling companions, mostly high school friends and disc jockeys, Elvis said, ‘I like to have my friends along… it gives me a little touch of home. Anyway, it’s more fun to see things together. I’ve got a waiting list… pretty long one… of friends who want to make trips with me. In fact I’ve heard from lots of so-called old friends from years ago who always say, ‘You remember me, don’t you?’ As for such nicknames as ‘Elvis the Pelvis’, Elvis said ‘There’s nothing I can do about it, but it sounds like little kids trying to find something to rhyme with Elvis’. He said, ‘I would eventually like to be a good actor. I haven’t had time up to now, but I would like to study for it’. Asked why he didn’t use the plane, he said, ‘I don’t like airplanes. I’m scared stiff of them. In fact, we could’ve been on the one missing now’. The Jordanaires and his band arrived by plane later the same day.
The other acts were: Ray Tankaka, Howard Hardin, Sterling Mossman, Kuai Barrett, Phyllis Brooks, Queens Men and The Jordanaires
 Image result for elvis november 10, 1957Image result for elvis november 10, 1957
Elvis sang, ‘Don’t Be Cruel’, ‘That’s When Your Heartaches Begin’, and many more, but the screams drowned out his voice a great portion of the time. Elvis had only to say, ‘Thank you very much’, and the audience would come apart. He’d scratch his nose… another scream. He’d laugh… another scream. At times, Elvis seemed to deliberately drop his arm or wiggle his shoulder just to hear his fans react. He performed for about forty minutes. Surprisingly, he spent more time at the piano than he did with his guitar. As he sang the closing number, ‘Hound Dog’, he sat down on the edge of the stage. .. and then jumped down, off the stage, onto the grass section in front of the stage. He rolled on the grass and moaned out the words to, ‘Hound Dog’. He kissed a girl across the barricade set up to keep his audience away from the stage, grabbed a coconut hat and paraded with it on his head. After he finished the song, he stepped into a waiting car and sped out of sight.
