Elvis Presley, forever "The King"

On August 16, 1977, Elvis Presley, "The King of Rock and Roll" passed away at the age of 42, news that devastated his fans worldwide.  I had tickets to a concert that was never to happen.
Elvis was not only talented, but beautiful on the inside and outside, a family man dedicated to his parents and child. 
Fame is sometimes the sad end of such incredible talent with the inability of those close to say "no".  Sadly, Elvis's story has been repeated so many times since, hopefully one day the early deaths of amazingly talented people will stop, sometimes it seems all it will take is for someone to say a simple "no" and take the consequences for saying that tiny word.
Rest in peace Elvis, your music will live on forever.
