Elvis Presley – Ramblings of a Lifelong Fan – Part XV – Elvis’ Twin

I have always been fascinated by the fact that Elvis was born a twin. The other baby, Jesse Garon, was stillborn. Can you imagine, what if Jesse had been born? Would they have looked alike? Would Jesse have been able to sing like Elvis? Would he have been an entertainer as well, or would it have changed Elvis’ course in life, and maybe he wouldn’t have become an entertainer at all? Throughout his life, Elvis was also fascinated about his twin. Those close to him knew just how much losing Jesse Garon affected him.

Here is a great article by Elvis’ hairdresser and friend, Larry Geller. He talks about how intrigued Elvis was about the fact that he had a twin brother.

A couple of additional things to share…

I love it when other celebrities talk about Elvis, and this definitely caught my attention. I saw Robert Plant, lead singer of Led Zepplin on Jimmy Fallon recently. Plant is a huge Elvis fan. He speaks with Jimmy about meeting Elvis in 1974. Elvis said he’d heard that Robert sound checked to one of his songs and asked him which one. Robert said “Love Me.” They were leaving and headed down the hallway. Elvis turned around and started singing “Love Me” and Robert Plant sang with him. Plant said, “I could have packed up, quit and gone home right then.” (I paraphrased). Even though I’ve basically quoted the entire interview, here it is if you want to check it out:

 

Lastly, I have a new release out, and as I’ve stated before, I try to mention Elvis in all my published works. Here is a little snippet from Without Mercy:

China’s house was too quiet. She put on an Elvis Presley CD—finding comfort in the music she and her aunt had listened to when she was growing up—and turned the volume up as loud as it would go. She was heading up the stairs when it occurred to her that the music would mask the noise of an intruder.

Debating for just a moment, she decided the silence was worse, and left the music on. “Danny Boy” blasted around her as she reached the top of the stairs.

Her house was a multi-level, thirty four hundred square-foot Tudor with five bedrooms, a pool, sauna and hot tub. The front was secluded by an overhang of trees, and the back yard opened up into a wooded area. The home was much more elaborate than she could possibly afford on her salary. There were months she could barely make the utilities, and last summer she hadn’t opened the pool because she couldn’t afford the upkeep. But at least she didn’t have to pay a mortgage.

She’d always counted herself lucky that Gary had left her the house as compensation for his abandonment. But now it felt like enemy territory, and the spacious rooms seemed to be nothing more than good hiding places for intruders.

In the bathroom, she turned the shower on as hot as it would go and stripped, stepping quickly inside. Steam surrounded her, the spray so strong, it stung her skin. But that was okay. It meant she was alive.

She wasn’t sure how long she’d been standing under the water. It had turned cold, yet she remained. The strains of “Love Comin’ Down” penetrated through the closed door. She considered getting out, but the cold water was starting to numb her, and that was what she needed. To forget, not to feel for a while.

“China?” A man’s voice bellowed her name at the same time the bathroom door flung open, slamming against the wall. She screamed as the shower curtain was yanked back.

Jimmy Kimmell, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Myers

Click on book titles below to learn more and to be taken to a buy link

******************************

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of DEATH NOTICE – A killer is using her obituary column to forecast his kills.  – LAST DAY of 99¢ SALE!

Want: Seth Myers. He is adorable!!! I haven’t watched him do late night talk show hosting, but I adored him on Weekend Update on SNL.

Wed: Jimmy Fallon. Also adorable, and I ‘want’ him too, but if I ‘wed’ him then I could hang out with him a lot, and his BFF is Justin Timberlake. Talk about a WIN-WIN!

Waste: Jimmy Kimmell. Don’t watch him, don’t have a reason NOT to waste him.  

******************************

 

Sexy, French corporate raider meets idealistic philanthropist–true love or lust in passing? The French Resolution is now available at amazon  Nora Snowdon  is the Writer of Elegant Smut. Read more about her at www.norasnowdon.com  

Want  seth myers – he seems young and energetic, just what the doctor ordered

Wed  jimmy fallon – he knocks my socks off (and could remove other articles of clothing any time he wants) with his humour and musical ability.

Waste  jimmy kimmell – I still can’t forget his horrendously misogynistic “man show.”   although if he asked me on his current show, I promise I won’t really waste him. I need the bucks.  😉

 

******************************

Linda McLaughin, w/a Lyn O’Farrell, author of Worth The Risk, contemporary romance.  Website: http://www.lindamclaughlin.com

Want: This was tough because I like both Jimmy’s, but I want Jimmy Fallon. He’s cute, with a great sense of humor, and I think he’d be a lot of fun to hang out with. And he even has his own Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream flavor. I loved the feud he had going with Stephen Colbert and the competition of who had the best ice cream flavor.

Wed: Seth Myers, because he’s really smart and funny and has the most adorable, shy (or is that sly) smile. I could wake up to that smile every day, no problem.

Waste: I hate to do this, because I have no reason not to like Jimmy Kimmel, but someone has to be wasted. 😦

 

******************************

 

Juli D. Revezzo, author of Passion’s Sacred Dance  He may be her savior in disguise, but can she trust him? ON SALE until May 9th at Amazon, The Wild Rose Press, and All-Romance Ebooks – Website: http://julidrevezzo.com/

Wed: JK at least is a Stevie Nicks fan like me, so definitely a keeper. 🙂

Waste:  Seth Myers, because somehow, I found him annoying.

Can I say Semi-want: Jimmy Fallon? He seems like a nice guy.
