I was eleven years old when it was announced that elvis would be performing at the nassau coliseum here in long island. my brother said he'd let me go with him if I could find a way to pay for my ticket. to say I was excited was an understatement - all I had to do was find a way to get the ten dollars I needed for the ticket. maybe a week or so later & much to my total amazement, I found a ten dollar bill lying in the street! I can still remember my brothers look of disbelief as I burst through the door shouting to all of my family that I was going to see elvis!
it was towards the end of 'the kings' carreer when I found myself standing on my chair throughout the entire concert that fateful evening at the nassau coliseum. but let me assure you, though he was not the outer elvis we saw in the movies, elvis' inner man did not disappoint. he was amazing.
