With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

Did you ever wonder why Elvis‘ home was called Graceland? Well it was named after the original owner SE Toof’s daughter who was called Grace. It also has the honour of being the second most visited private residence in the United States outside the White House. Really? Come on, surely the White House is only technically a private residence, right?

This is my first post of 2015 and it will be quite a short one. I would like to celebrate the birthdays of two music icons who were born twelve years apart and who both had many hits on the RCA label. So happy birthday to David Bowie who is 68 today and Elvis Presley would have been 80 years old today. Feel free to enjoy a few tunes from these amazingly talented people.
