I’m a guest blogger on the official Graceland website!

WELL LAWDY MISS CLAWDY, I’m a guest blogger for Elvis! On Friday, the official website for Graceland picked up my article on the 1968 NBC-TV Special as part of their annual celebration of the original December 3, 1968, broadcast date.

Graceland ran a condensed version of my article under the original title, “Elvis Presley’s ’68 Comeback – Burbank to Graceland.“And it’s pushed interest in my piece across the board: response has been phenomenal!

Guest blogger: photo of Elvis in NBC's studio on June 27, 1968, for the sit-down sessions for the television special.

The editors dropped my reference to Elvis’s home Graceland having become both a social and personal metaphor. I used Paul Simon’s song Graceland and the movie Finding Graceland as examples.

So, if you want to read my piece in its entirety, click on over to the Best Classic Bands site and read it there.

POSTSCRIPTUALLY, the response to my BCB article—especially on Facebook—has been phenomenal. In the past few days, more people have read this one article than have read all the articles on my Elvis site in three years!!!


Something to say? Go on and say it ...
