Ten Elvis Facts*

    1. Elvis Presley died 35 years ago today.  He really did.
    2. His nickname for his manhood was Little Elvis.
    3.  The famous black hair was dyed — the real color was brown.
    4.  He played only five concerts outside the US, on a three-day tour to Canada in 1957.
    5. Elvis bought his mansion Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1957 with his very first $100,000.
    6.   One of his pilots had the real name Milo High.
    7.   His 1973 Aloha from Hawaii concert was the first to be broadcast live by satellite. It was seen by a billion people.
    8. He loved Fool’s Gold Loaf, a hollow loaf filled with a jar of peanut butter, a jar of grape jelly and a pound of bacon. It had 42,000 calories.
    9.  His last meal was four scoops of ice cream and six chocolate chip cookies.
    10.  In 1977 there were 170 Elvis impersonators. By 2002 there were 85,000. At that rate of growth, by 2019 a third of the world’s population will be Elvis impersonators.
