Something appropriate for Elvis Week in Memphis ( when I lived there, the locals referred to it as “Death Week” ). Big doings no doubt on Elvis Presley Boulevard for this fortieth anniversary. Now that Randy Newman has been inducted, here’s my nomination for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the most deserving American […]
