Hey pallies, likes 40 years 'go this very day, rock and roll legend Mr. Elvis Presley unexpectedly passed from our midst. Many many times over the years we have been pleased to shared powerful posts relatin' just how much Mr. Presley was deeply deeply devoted to our Dino, includin' the most famous of famous quotation Elvis spoke sayin' to one of our Dino's youngens, "“They call me the King of Rock and Roll, but your dad is the King of Cool."
Well, likes in honor of this 40th anniversary of Mr. Presley's untimely death, we were led to a post at the blog site, "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette," where Miss Sharon Eberson scribed the post "James Snyder channels the young Elvis in 'Million Dollar Quartet'" which is now playin' through August 13 at the Pittsburgh CLO at the Benedum Center, Downtown. Likes as part of that post there is a short paragraph that includes a reference to Mr. Presley's delight in our most beloved Dino....one that we ain't ever remembered hearin' before.
Likes as you will read below, when Elvis "first came to Sun Studios, he was there to record Dean Martin songs as a gift for his mother." Likes if that don't tell us how deeply deeply devoted to our Dino we don't know what would! The King of Rock and Roll began his remarkable recordin' career by recordin' some deep Dino-croons for his mommy-o!!!!!
We thanks the pallies at the "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and in particular writer Miss Sharon Eberson for includin' this deepest of deep detail 'bout Mr. Elvis Presley's incredible idolization of our most most beloved Dino. To checks this out in it's original source and read the prose in total, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-gram.
Yours in Dino,
Dino Martin Peters
Elvis based his sound and his moves on African-American artists he admired, hit-makers such as Wynonie Harris. But when he first came to Sun Studios, Mr. Snyder notes, he was there to record Dean Martin songs as a gift for his mother. It was Mr. Phillips who recognized his talent, as he did for the others in the Million Dollar Quartet.
