No one can deny the impact Elvis had on the music world, but I have never been overly enamored with him.  I mean, I enjoy his popular stuff, its fun. But my nine year old, he LOVES ELVIS.  Like makes me listen to the Elvis station on Sirius, loved Elvis.  He spots the sign for ELVIS LIVES at the theater when we were there for the Rockettes.  Are you an Elvis fan?
