Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 22nd September!
On the 22nd September 1958, Elvis Presley gave a press conference at the Military Ocean Terminal in Brooklyn, before joining the 3rd Armored Division on the USS Genereal Randall in Bremerhaven, Germany. The „King of Rock’n’Roll“ answered questions about his army duty, music and family. After the press conference Elvis boarded the U.S.S. Randall.
Listen to this historic press conference:
A few months before that press conference, Elvis Presley was inducted into the U.S. Army on 24th March 1958. During his stay in Germany (Friedberg), Elvis met the 14 years old teenager Priscilla Beaulieu during a party at Elvis‘ home in Bad Neuheim. On the 1st May 1967 the couple get married. Only five years later Elvis and Priscilla seperated on 23rd February 1973. Their only child, Lisa Marie, was born exactly nine months after their wedding, on 1st February 1968.
