Hey pallies, today we remember the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley on what would have been his 72nd birthday. Elvis loved Dino and wanted so much to emulate him. It was Elvis who gave Dino the cool title, King Of Cool. The story goes somethin' like this. Elvis said, "I may be the King of Rock and Roll, but Dean is the King of Cool." The little pix of Dino, Elvis, and Miss Shirley MacClaine is of a birthday celebration, but for our Dino.

I love this picture. Elvis loved and revered Dean and you can hear Dean's influence all the way through the Kings career. Long Live Both Of Our Kings.

Hey pallie Jeremy, dude like thanks for stoppin' by the Dinoblog. I totally love how the King of Rock and Roll tagged Dino the King of Cool....and as you say man Elvis loved Dino to the max....and tried to emulate his style.
