Happy Birthday - Elvis and David
« on: Jan 08, 2020, 07:25:10 AM »
Today is the birthday of both Elvis Presley and David Bowie. Two great talents sadly missed!


So many great songs I cannot name a favourite for either!

I wasn't a fan of either so no loss to me.

Some fairly negative comments so here is an example of each one's work:

I've always been an Elvis fan.

  Stephen..I'm familiar with their work and their popularity and have no quarrel with your admiration for 'em but I'll give the downloads a pass. As I said, I'm not/never was a fan. :)

Exactly my sentiments too.

As a youngster I grew up on Elvis.. He had a most distinctive sound and his voice is recognised the world over.. and he was well good looking.
 I don't know much about David Bowie.. However I always enjoy his Christmas song with Bing Crosby.. I think it is called Little Drummer Boy..
