The Wiggles

On This Day In History, August 16

On this day in history,

in 1977, Elvis Presley died at his home, Graceland. In related news from Australia, Greg Page, better known as the “Yellow Wiggle”, staged an exhibition of Elvis memorabilia including his 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II, with all proceeds going to The Salvation Army Disaster Relief appeal. Gotta love the Wiggles!
