The Retro Taylor Hicks

(click to enter!)

Taylor's Angels was talking about the various covers that Taylor Hicks played on his tours last year, and it occured to us that most of them were from the 70's and 80's. We thought it would be fun to go back and take a look at the original artist side by side with Taylor's version.
We got a little crazy, and before we knew it, we had gone way back into the beginning of the 70's decade. Click on the above Love poster and take a trip back in time and get a little funky with us! Enjoy!

Taylor Hicks' Fans remember the King of Rock 'n Roll

Today, August 16, 2008, marks the 31st anniversary of the death of Elvis Aaron Presley, the King of Rock 'n Roll.

Born January 8, 1935 in a small, two room shack in Tupelo, Mississippi, Elvis eventually moved to Memphis, Tennessee. There, he purchased for his home the Graceland mansion, a 13.8 acre site that is now used as Elvis' museum. Graceland has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1991 and is the second most visited private residence in the United States, second only to the Whitehouse.

Every year, thousands of fans come to Memphis, Tennessee and pay tribute to Elvis during his death week. A week long celebration culminates with a candlelight vigil, which is usually attended by tens of thousands of people. The vigil does not end until the last person passes by the Meditation Gardens on the grounds of Graceland where Elvis and his parents are buried.

Many attempts have been made in the past couple of years to compare Taylor Hicks with Elvis. Some may be a "stretch" and some border on eerie. Whether or not Taylor is or has "channeled" Elvis in any of his performances, the fact remains that Taylor did give tribute to The King in two of his performances during his American Idol competition. Taylor's Angels thought it would be fun to look at these two performances by both men as we take a moment to remember Elvis and appreciate him for the impact that he had on modern music.
