Thanks Sue. It was interesting to read. Re that last bit, about when "Elvis has left the building" got started, I was sure that this had gotten started in the 1950's, not 1969.

In 1956, as he tried to quiet a frenzied Hayride audience after another Presley performance, Logan announced, "Elvis has left the building."

I've read this article before and always loved this quote. Something very poignant about it to me.

"It was like he came along and whispered some dream in everybody's ear, " Bruce Springsteen said, "and somehow we all dreamed it."

I've heard that Bruce actually scaled the wall at Graceland around 1976 or so, looking for Elvis, but he wasn't home. He supposedly knoocked on the door, told whoever answered that he was a singer, too, (just starting out) but I guess they told him Elvis wasn't home and asked him to leave. :(
