... An Update To The Elvis Post. He even saved us from tyranny.
The Dylan quote that Bill cites is interesting. I also can still remember the first time I heard Elvis. It was a Sunday afternoon and the DJ on the radio played "Heartbreak Hotel."I guess I would have been 14 - the song came out in '56 and I didn't turn 15 until October. It had an impact on me like no pop song before or since. So I guess that was my transformative pop music experience.
