Where Were You When You Heard The News?

40 Years

Article heading image for Where Were You When You Heard The News?

In our time we've seen a number of events that will be forever seared into memory. The death of Princess Dianna, 9/11, the America's Cup win and 40 years ago today, the death of The King.

Where did the time go?

40 years ago Elvis Presley shuffled off the mortal coil and despite a handful of people thinking he's been flipping burgers in Busso all these years, I think we can agree, he ain't coming back.

Where were you and how did you hear the news?

I can still remember exactly how it happened for me. I woke up just after 7.30 and asked brother dear what was going on and he said "Elvis died"


I said "he can't" and was assured he had, and the world was never the same again.

That is one of those moments and today I'd like to hear about yours. Stories must be told.
