Springsteen has said that he wouldn't be who he is if Elvis hadn't existed. One of the more famous stories he used to tell during concerts involved him jumping over the fence at Graceland in 1976 to try to meet his hero -- even though he himself was already a mega-star, having appeared simultaneously on the covers of Time and Newsweek.

He would tell audiences that when Elvis died, "It was so hard to understand how somebody whose music came in and took away so many people’s loneliness and gave so many people a reason and a sense of all the possibilities of living could have in the end died so tragically. And I guess when you’re alone, you ain’t nothin’ but alone."

In 1999, Springsteen released the song "Johnny Bye-Bye," his tribute to Elvis, originally recorded in 1982 (and based on the Chuck Berry song "Bye-Bye Johnny").

Here are the lyrics to the song Johnny Bye-Bye
She drew out all her money from the Southern Trust
And put her little boy on a Greyhound Bus
Leaving Memphis with a guitar in his hand
On a one-way ticket to the promised land
Hey little girl with the red dress on
There's party tonight down in Memphis down
I'll be going down there if you need a ride
The man on the radio says Elvis Presley's died

We drove down into Memphis, the sky was hard and black
Up over the ridge came a white Cadillac
They'd drawn out all his money and they laid him in the back
A woman cried from the roadside "Ah he's gone, he's gone"
They found him slumped up against the drain
With a whole lot of trouble running through his veins
Bye-bye Johnny
Johnny bye-bye
You didn't have to die
