Elvis Presley is a star who continues to mesmerize his fans even years after his demise. He would turn 75 on January 8th 2010 had he been alive. However, a lot of plans have been made for celebrating the Rock n Roll Icon’s 75th Birthday. There will be museum exhibits, CD releases, radio tributes and movie shows across USA to commemorate the occasion. At his Graceland residence his former spouse, Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley, his daughter will come for a cake cutting ceremony to remember the legendary singer. They will kick off a series of events and tours that will continue for 4 days.

Since Elvis Presley was the first singer to be inducted in the famous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame its museum will celebrate his birthday too. The museum spokespersons said that they have updated the memorabilia and artifacts of the singer. Every year the museum exhibits the items used by the star when he was alive. His acoustic guitar and personal jukebox continue to be favorites with the viewers. They have the guitars which the star used in his spectacular comeback in 1968. The star used a lot of jumpsuits and a lot of these are on display at the museum.

The fans of Elvis Presley flock to his home in Memphis, Tennessee to pay homage every year during his birthday. The star bought Graceland in 1957 and he lived their till his demise in 1977. The influence he exerted on American youth and pop culture is still remembered with fondness by thousands of fans. They will be delighted to know that RCA Records has brought out a collection of 10 of his tracks, all digitally re mastered.
