Happy Birthday to The King! Elvis would have been 81 today and in honor of his birthday I say we delve deep into his psyche! Whatya say?
As most Elvis fans know, he was born a twin. Sadly, his brother Jesse was stillborn. As the surviving twin, this is something that haunted Elvis his entire life. One day, in 1977 – shortly before his own death – he opened up to his good friend and hairstylist Larry Geller:
“Larry, listen, I’m going to tell you something, and it might even sound strange, but it’s something I’ve secretly thought about before. Maybe, maybe it was me. Maybe it was something I did, ya know? Who knows, maybe when we were in the womb together we were fighting like Jacob and his twin like it says in the Bible. Man that story always stuck with me. Maybe I was like Jacob who tried to stop his brother from being born first. Hey, I’m just saying…anything’s possible.
Elvis declared excitedly, “You won’t believe the dream I just had. Man, it was so real. An’ I can’t remember dreaming about my brother Jesse Garon since I was a little kid. But there we were together – on stage. Seemed like thousands of people in the audience, and they were screaming at us. It was wild! We were dressed alike, wearing identical white jumpsuits, and we were both playing matching guitars slung around our shoulders. . There were two blue spotlights, one shining on him, one on me. An’ I kept looking at him, and man, he was the spitting image of me. I’ll tell you something else Lawrence…” Elvis grinned. “Jesse had a way better voice than me.”
Wow… no interpretation needed.
