MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Managers of Elvis Presley’s Graceland are looking for people with personal stories to tell about the king of rock ‘n’ roll for an oral history enterprise called the Elvis Presley Legacy Project. The stories are being videotaped and will become part of Graceland’s archives. Examples can be found on the Graceland Web site.
“If you encountered Elvis and have a story to share with the world, we would love to include you in this project,” Graceland says on the site, which has a “submit your story” link. The project is scheduled to run through Jan. 8, 2010, which would have been Presley’s 75th birthday. He died at Graceland of heart disease and drug abuse on Aug. 16, 1977 at age 42.
