One of Elvis' best (and that's saying something)... -- Jimi's guitar is worth...? -- Blues legend b'day...

4/25/1960 (57 years ago today) - After his two-year stint in the Army, Elvis was back in lean, mean top form with one of his best singles ever, "Stuck On You", which hits No. 1 on this date and stays there for the next four weeks -- Before it was even released, orders for the single had already reached the one million mark!  -- It was Elvis' first No. 1 of the Sixties and thirteenth overall -- Until the Mop Tops arrive, this will do just fine, thank you very much...

4/25/1990 (27 years ago today) - His two-hour set at the 1969 festival became the longest of his career: The Fender Stratocaster that Jimi Hendrix played at Woodstock was auctioned off for a record $295,000!!! I'd be afraid to be in the same room with it, frankly...

4/25/1923 - Born on this date, the truly legendary blues guitarist-singer-songwriter Albert King, one of the "Three Kings Of Blues Guitar" (along with B.B. King and Freddie King, gettit?), best known for his 1967 classic "Born Under A Bad Sign" (which Eric Clapton and Cream destroyed the world with on their epic double set "Wheels Of Fire"), as well as being a heavy-duty major influence on other guitar greats like Mick Taylor, Mike Bloomfield, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes and Joe Walsh (The James Gang guitarist spoke at King's funeral) -- Albert died of a heart attack at his Memphis home on December 21, 1992,  just two days after playing a show in L.A.; he was 69.
