Elvis links

Elvis is one of the most widely, if not THE most widely, discussed entertainer on the Internet -- a mirror of his tremendous, pervasive, and global influence that extends far beyond the boundaries of any musical form. The following are but a mere sampling of some of the Elvis sites that capture part of the continuing magic that is the legacy of Elvis Presley's life...

Elvis Presley's Graceland
...the "official" Web presence, via Elvis' burgeoning Estate (not that Elvis would necessarily approve of some of the Estate's profit-driven actions and philosophies, perhaps exemplified by an ex-wife who runs the show but who cultivates the appearance of one who couldn't care less about the man who was at its center...you might want to read her telling of her life with Elvis and a book called "Child Bride" for more on that and judge for yourself where the truth lies)
