Elvis: "A Day in the Life"                                                                                                                                   April 1, 1963, (Monday)

Graceland, 3764 Highway 51 South, Memphis, Tennessee?

 

 

Shortly after his return to Memphis, Elvis bought Priscilla a red Corvair so that she could drive herself to school

instead of being chauffeured every day by Vernon.

Chenault’s Restaurant, 1400 South Bellevue, Memphis, Tennessee.

 

Elvis was spotted with Priscilla in the Chenault's parking lot by a Memphis Press-Scimitar reporter. He told the reporter

that Priscilla was the daughter of an army officer who "sent her ahead because she wanted to graduate on time." Her

family, he suggested, was not far behind and was, as had already been reported in the Commercial Appeal, friendly with

his family in Germany. On the subject of movies he told the reporter that he had seen both "Lawrence of Arabia" and "To

Kill a Mockingbird" since he returned home and expected the former would win an Oscar "because more money was spent on it, but I think Mockingbird was really better-that's a wonderful movie."

"One Broken Heart for Sale" was still number one in Hong Kong.

 

The charts still had a strong R&B and C&W presence, but the pop chart now reflected how popular folk and surf music had become. All female groups were starting to emerge by creating the "Wall of Sound" inspired through it's producer Phil Spector. There was still a place for the teen idol, but "Rock n' Roll" as a whole, had become more "sanitised" over the last three years.
