Elvis Presley's 75th birthday
Elvis Presley would turn 75 today, and a record number of fans are heading to Memphis for the big birthday bash.
Ex-wife Priscilla and daughter Lisa Marie will be on the Graceland lawn to cut an enormous cake. It's been a long time since the marriage ended (Elvis died 32 years ago), but let these remind you of their young love.
