Elvis Mention in New Albom Novel     
Elvis gets a shout-out in the new Mitch Albom novel, "The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto." In the book, it's mentioned that Frankie played with Elvis at some Louisiana Hayride gigs. It's a work of fiction so the facts aren't spot on, but it's still a very fun mention.

Coolest Gig     
In the April 4-17 TV Guide there is an article titled "All Shook Up" about actress Jane Eliot's 51 year career in the 'suds' that began in 1965.

David Bowie / Blackstar      
David Bowie's new album, Black Star, could have been influenced by Elvis. Here's and excerpt from the Guardian, UK:

Black Star is the name of a little-known Elvis song that has being doing the rounds. It’s about death. “When a man sees his black star,” Presley sings, “he knows his time … has come.” Bowie was a known Presley nut, telling Q in 1997 that “he was a major hero of mine. And I was probably stupid enough to believe that having the same birthday as him actually meant something.”
Ruth G, Washington, D.C., US
