“But, mama, the saucer people always bring me back.”

Yesterday we had Elvis singing the word “motherfucker.” Today we have tales of Vernon Presley seeing UFOs attending Elvis’ birth. Oh man. Where do we go from here?

“Elvis Presley reportedly had a lifelong belief in extraterrestrials and witnessed a number of UFOs during his life. The 'King of Rock and Roll' is said to have had several sightings of UFOs during his life, with his interest sparked by an unusual sighting made by his father, Vernon, on the day he was born, January 8, 1935. The singer's hairstylist and friend, Larry Geller, explained: "His father told us he'd gone out to have a cigarette at 2am during the delivery and when he looked up into the skies above their little shack, he saw the strangest blue light. He knew right then and there that something special was happening." Renowned Elvis historian Cory Cooper, who's been researching the life and times of the rock 'n' roll icon for nearly 30 years, also verified the legend of the blue UFOs in Tupelo that night. He said he's personally heard that same story told multiple times by Geller and other insiders who were close to Elvis. Author Michael C. Luckman - who wrote a book, 'Alien Rock: The Rock 'N' Roll Extraterrestrial Connection', about musicians who have had contact with otherworldly beings - believes Elvis was later visited by aliens when he was a child.” (Click here for more)

And by way of a bonus our pals at Dangerous Minds have come up with a video montage to go with yesterday’s audio of “Stranger In My Own Hometown.” Click here.

God, but that IS a grand bit of video, as well as the "Stranger" tune. Elvis could let kloose when he had the feelin'. Blues imbedded deep somewhere inside. Thanx!
