The amount of drugs in their hotel rooms must have been staggering.

That was a net story. BTW, if it shows "Video Unavailable" (anywhere in DR) click "Share" and then the youtube link that pops on the screen.

Old joke: Elvis: "Red, there may be a problem. Got my pills an' my change mixed up. I think I just swallowed seventy-five cents."

I was never really a fan of Elvis.... ok, at 5 I did like Hound Dog, and he had some cool early rock 'n roll hits and some hot 60's movie starlets in his films, but like Plant said, by the 70's he knew he was doing a parody of himself. I just never knew LZ admired him so much.

Never liked Sinatra as a teen, either, mostly because his politics. These days I can appreciate his vocal song styling a lot more, and band music in general... so maybe one day I'll like Elvis, too.

Led Zeppelin was the greatest.

Period.

No contest.

Anyone disagreeing is as wrong as a 3 dollar bill.

... which is pretty cool because the music that he liked most in the 60's is the segment that is most often not associated with those years by a lot of people.

I always liked the 50's , pre-Army Elvis. Those were his most dynamic years, I think. This is his performance on the Milton Berle Show on June 5th 1956 that got him in all the trouble and subsequently launched his great career.

He was having way too much fun for some people.

Everyone should see at least the last comment on the video by the redneck cafe owner.

Maybe the anti-social justice trolls will see themselves.
