Elvis was All Shook Up for the Last Time in Indianapolis

The King of Rock and Roll’s last concert was in Indianapolis 43 years ago today.  He might have traveled home to Memphis through some Kentucky Rain, only to die seven weeks later. 

While a singer like Elvis Presley comes along only once in a Blue Moon, some did not see him as rock’s Little Darlin’. He got a C in 8th grade music and he was pelted with eggs by Villanova students in 1957.  But, most had Burning Love for him and saw him as an Earth Angel even when wearing Blue Suede Shoes.  The puns could go on . . .  there are 703 more Elvis song titles!  How many can you name?

Here is a map of Indianapolis from 1911 by Rand, McNally & Co.
