... and time that will live on forever. I felt like I did not want the tour to end. I wanted to stay in this time warp forever! Had there been a time machine I would have gone in.
To know that the recording room we stood in, Roy Orbison, Elvis, B.B. King, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis, to name a few, were in that exact room. To see the acoustics, equipment ...

Upstairs was Elvis' private living area, and wasn't available to the pubic. He died up there in the bathroom. Outside, Elvis is buried near the pool alongside his father, mother and grandmother, along with a small plaque for his twin brother Jessie who died at birth. ...
