10 Odd Things Left At Elvis Presley's Grave

As close as Rocks Off has ever come personally to Elvis' grave. Graceland was already closing for the day by the time we got there in April.
Today is the 34th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death, which means that even as you read this, Graceland workers are hard at work sorting, cataloging and otherwise disposing of the thousands of flowers, cards, framed pictures, candles, and Christ and angel figurines left over from Monday's overnight candlelight vigil. The Memphis Commercial Appeal estimated the crowd at around 20,000 this year.

This morning, as a report on the vigil scrolled across the ABC News crawl on Good Morning America, Rocks Off thought, "I wonder what else people have left at Elvis' grave?" A few short hours later, here you go.

LARRY MULLEN JR'S TEARS

The U2 drummer and Harley-riding man among men gets visibly choked up while talking about visiting Graceland in the 1988 film Rattle & Hum. "I really wish he hadn't been buried in the backyard," he says. "I wish he would have been buried somewhere I couldn't have gone."

Half ton air conditioners only weight about 100lbs, the half ton is not the weight, but the cooling capacity.

Thanks. Still, only Elvis would have an air-conditioned coffin, whether or not he's actually in it.

It's true that he faked his death.  He is alive and well and living as Jesse.  Check out all the evidence, but only if you're a true Elvis fan....http://lindahoodsigmontruth.com/
