Halloween is one week away! In spirit of All Hallow’s Eve, we’ll be posting about a reported rock ‘n’ roll ghost story every day until the holiday. Today’s tale involves The King.
Elvis Presley died in 1977 at the age of 42, a great tragedy for all rock ‘n’ roll fans. Some conspiracy theorists believe Presley is still alive, and some believe only his spirit is alive. There have been many claims that suggest Elvis’s ghost roams the hallways of his Graceland Mansion. Multiple sightings of The King have been reported in the mansion and some have said they’ve experienced eerie things in the old RCA Records Studio were Presley recorded Heartbreak Hotel.
Crew members at the RCA studio (which has now been converted into a TV production facility) say that whenever Elvis’s name was mentioned during a show in the studio, strange noises would come out of the speakers, lights would turn off, and other unexplainable phenomena would occur. At least we still get to have a bit of The King around with us if these reports are true!
To celebrate the life (before and after) of Elvis Presley, here’s a clip of his performance of Suspicious Minds live in Las Vegas here:
