(Aug. 16) – Elvis may be the undisputed King of rock 'n' roll, but did you know he was also supposedly the King of UFO sightings?


Did you ATS'rs know this factoid? hmm i wonder..

Turns out, the hip-swiveling pioneer of rock may have been the first official rock star to truly embrace UFOs due to his reportedly deep-rooted, lifelong connection to flying saucers.

The author claimed that it all began the night the King was born -- Jan. 8, 1935 -- when a strange, unidentified blue light reportedly hovered in the night skies above Elvis' childhood home in Tupelo, Miss.

"The light was seen by the doctor who delivered him and by Elvis' father, who later told Elvis all about it," alleged Luckman


Now, there's no need to get "All Shook Up."

Stop, look and listen, baby! Elvis Presley was open to the idea that UFOs were space aliens visiting earth, according to author Michael Luckman.
Elvis' so-called "alien connection" is all solely the notion of Michael C. Luckman, a New York-based UFO researcher and author of "Alien Rock: The Rock 'N' Roll Extraterrestrial Connection" (Simon & Schuster), a book about famous musicians who claim they've had alien encounters.

Luckman told AOL News that out of all pop culture rock icons, Elvis Presley, by far, had the strongest tie to UFOs, experiencing several documented sightings throughout his life.

Now this is way cool..

who knew the King was a big fan of UFO's? I sure didn't..

elvis loves ufos

I did read in a few books about his fascination with U.F.O's.
It often made me smile to think that at least I'm not the only
one to believe in this.

Then came the internet and everyone on here claims to be an E.T.

Amazing how we have come along.

p.s.
Please no more corny Elvis lines.

No worries. You have to expect it I guess.

I'm curious to go through some books and re-read some stuff,
maybe I can find some more quotes or anything else to add.
We shall see.

I didn't know that but thanks for sharing. Reminds me of the line from the movie MIB: 'Elvis didn't die. He just went home.'



Cool stuff, though. I also had no idea there was a sighting when he was born.

That's a fun fact post baddmove. Thank you for this thread.
I was trying to find an angle to get Elvis into a thread on the 33rd anniversary of his death. I'm sure I speak for UFO and Elvis fans alike when I say...

"Thank you. Thank you very much!"




The 'King' lives on in the hearts and minds of many. Not much conspiracy there, just a "A Big Hunk o' Love"....... and fun.

Ladies and gentlemen........Hemi has left the building!

Yeah, But it's actually true. lol


"Supposedly the king of UFOS"
does not mean
"elvis supposedly was obsessed with ufos"..
No,
He really was "obsessed" with them.

Do some reading,
Some of his very closest people have talked and written about it,
not to mention elvis himself. lol

michael jackson was also pretty "into" "UFOS".

This came to me a little later baddmove. It hit me that this was the 33rd anniversary of Elvis' death and that 33rd is significant in freemasonry. It got me to wondering if Elvis was a Mason. In Googling that, I found the following:


Franklin D. Roosevelt (1889-1945) 32nd President of America and 33rd degree Mason who stayed in office for 3 terms/12 years. In 1933 FDR added the Masonic Great Seal (Eagle/Pyramid) to the back of the dollar bill. The translation from the bill reads “Novus Ordo Seclorum” or New World Order. This is the same New World Order Hitler spoke of in 1933 when he said, ““National Socialism (Nazism) will use its own revolution for the establishing of a New World Order.”


This is from a "picture book" carried on scribd.com titled - Famous Freemasons Exposed: Masonry From the Vatican to Hollywood by Eric & Intukan Dubay. They apparently are conspiracy theorists themselves. (Ya think?) And so the 33's are apparently running wild. Just coincidental I'm sure.

Here is an excerpt from Famous Freemasons Exposed regarding Elvis:


Even though Elvis was a fellow Mason, Sinatra publicly said of Elvis’ music, “His kind of music is deplorable, a rancid smelling aphrodisiac. It fosters almost totally negative and destructive reactions in young people.” Sinatra’s statements created quite the controversy, polarized and divided their respective young/old audiences, and garnered plenty of attention for the both of them – all publicity is good publicity. Elvis responded to Sinatra’s comments saying, “I admire the man. He has a right to say what he wants to say. He is a great success and a fine actor, but I think he shouldn't have said it... This [rock and roll] is a trend, just the same as he faced when he started years ago.”


Ouch Frank! I'm just sayin'.

Here we see The King, Elvis, granting an audience to the late President of The United States, Richard Nixon.




The King was connected - as are, no doubt, many of today's top movers and shakers in Show Biz.

While we scratch around the Internet in the hopes of finding one true scrap of UFO information, Lucas and Spielberg are, tonight at Skywalker Ranch, entertaining the old scientist who actually reverse-engineered the saucer at Roswell.

Lucas: "Another hot dog, Mr. X?"

Mr. X: "Sure, and later, let's screen Close Encounters Of The Third Kind. It's been a while...

Spielberg: "Oh, that reminds me, Mr. X, it's almost time for me to cut you another check."

Mr. X: "Yesss, it is."

Anyway...I've always wondered if the elite of Show Biz are privy to a whole different level of information?

It sounds like Elvis may have been. Could the man get any cooler?

Edit: Reverse-engineered spelling.

Thank God you had the caption above that. For a second I thought it was Elvis reuniting with his dead twin.
Whew!!! You see some pretty scary crap here on ATS.


A little more on that photo with a slightly more serious tone. And I mean slightly. The following from www.gwu.edu on "The Nixon-Presley Meeting":


On December 21, 1970, Elvis Presley paid a visit to President Richard M. Nixon at the White House in Washington, D.C. The meeting was initiated by Presley, who wrote Nixon a six-page letter requesting a visit with the President and suggesting that he be made a "Federal Agent-at-Large" in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.


Nothing quite hilarious there. Strange request but not yet hilarious. The funny part is that Elvis was rumored to have already been popping pills like M&Ms and was lit up like a Christmas tree during the meeting with Nixon. This while requesting an honorary narc badge. If anyone knew who was peddling dope in Memphis in 1970 it was likely Elvis. In my opinion "E" does not look good in this photo at all and so I think the rumors were likely true. Nixon however appears nearly life-like. Go Dick!


Here's the link to that site if you're interested:

Just a mention that on that site a number of the other White House photos of those two looked much more appealing. They choose poorly in my opinion.




I thought this shot was much better than the one we've seen forever.

I wonder if The Big E was inspired to pursue his fictitious 'Federal Agent at Large' status after watching the super-cool moves of another fictitious Agent at Large...who just happened to look like...???

September 20th, 1968...Hawaii 5-0 hits the American airwaves.

December 21, 1970...Elvis commands meeting with President.

Book 'em, E!
