Elvis 68Special1 1000d

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!!!
