Elvis Presley's beloved grand piano up for auction

Like 2016, Another Demonstration Planned On Night Of Annual Elvis Presley Candlelight Vigil

Wednesday saw the 40th anniversary of the death of the King of Rock n' Roll.

Last year, African-American demonstrators claimed Memphis Police and Graceland security discriminated by blocking entry to the vigil area on Elvis Presley Blvd., leading to a federal lawsuit.

He spent many weekends in Waco in the home of former Dallas disk jockey Eddie Fadal, who met Presley in February 1956 and remained a lifelong friend.

Elvis was 42 when he died on in 1977.

He left active duty on March 5, 1960 at Fort Dix, N.J., but remained in the Army Reserve until March 23, 1964.

This image released by the United States Postal Service shows the new Elvis Presley forever stamp available August 12. And, as recently as 2016, a video emerged of a bearded man wearing a baseball cap at Graceland which many fans believed was the elderly singer.




John Layfield is one of brooks dedicated fans and has said to attend every concert in the past three years.

The display features an Elvis Presley-themed coffin - and Elvis enthusiast Tracey Challenor-Howard has marked the 40th anniversary of his death by buying one for her own send off.

"You grow up listening to all his albums as a teenager", said one fan. "If you try to make a second destination for Elvis, it doesn't really work because it's not authentic to who Elvis was".

But I've been to a couple of those Candlelight Vigils, where fans walk up the driveway and around past the graves of Elvis, Jesse Garon, Gladys and Vernon. "Obviously I went to so numerous shows".

"We're going to be calling Memphis live from the bar, we've got a bit of Elvis music and it'll be a great atmosphere". And the actress said the music star was in the midst of a particularly "vulnerable" moment in his life.

A 10-minute drive from Graceland, the guide at Sun Studio tells fans they are on "sacred and hallowed" ground in the basement studio where Presley recorded his first song, "That's All Right", in 1954.
