    Happy Birthday Elvis! January 8, 1935.

    Did you know Elvis began dying his hair, eyebrows, and yes...eyelashes when he was only 20! He used Clairol Black Velvet #51 :heheh: Dying his eyelashes gave him some eye problems before his death, though.

    I don't care what anyone says, Elvis was the shit. Hell of an entertainer, great charisma, supposedly one of the nicest and most generous people you'd ever want to meet (so the rumors go anyway).

    And Suspicious Minds will always be one of my faves.

    I actually heard rumors at one point that he even used black shoe polish before some performances because the dye job had faded or grown out a bit. There are / were pictures of him sweating with black lines running down the sides of his face. Heh.

    Not a huge Elvis fan but I do like some of his stuff. Love his movies though...good escapism.

    My favourite Elvis tune...
