Elvis Presley's beloved grand piano up for auction

You are keeping Elvis Presley alive.

Wednesday will mark the 40th anniversary of Elvis' death, and thousands of devoted fans have been paying their respects to the king of Rock n Roll all week long. Elvis died suddenly at age 42 on August 16, 1977 from heart failure after battling health problems including weight gain and a dependency on prescription drugs.

The auction has been organised for charity which enables sellers to list items to benefit non-profit organisations.

Graceland officials tell me they expect about 100,000 people here for Elvis week this year, the largest one ever.

The piano will be on sale for 10 days, ending on August 20.

Shake your head at the unashamed commercialism Elvis has spawned in the 40 years since his death.

Pedowitz said there's a chance that The CW could develop a show pegged to the character of Hope Mikaelson from "The Originals". Deadline reports that at today's TCA , The CW announced a SUPERGIRL/ARROW crossover which will air on Monday, November 27th.

According to Spotify, Elvis fans have streamed his music over one billion times. Marking the anniversary of his death by bringing a symbol of life to his final resting place very likely feels like the closest they will come to a personal hail, farewell and thank you. "Elvis's napkin. The napkin he ate with", said Sprung.

The suit contends during the 2016 candlelight vigil, MPD and Graceland allowed white people to pass through barricades into the public vigil area but blocked African-Americans in the same line to enter. "I think we celebrate our love for him a lot - especially at Christmas, mum and dad always have an Elvis stocking up".

Sprung has been an Elvis collector for 60 years.

One set of outfits particularly stood out - the ones Elvis wore for his iconic 1968 Christmas Special on NBC.

This is great news for Presley fans, who over the past have expressed their great concerns for Lisa's well being fearing she would sadly end up facing the same tragic fate as her father. For his 11th birthday, he had asked his mother for a rifle but she instead gave him a guitar.

An average pupil at school, who once got a C grade in music, Elvis went on to win a singing talent contest and got his first guitar as an 11th birthday present, learning to play by ear.
