Elvis Presley--"Heartbreak Hotel": Huge hit in 1956. This Presley fellow never had another hit and, as I understand it, spent the rest of his life shooting televisions.
very droll W-C.You could have added Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" a one hit wonder by a
breakaway group from Bob Dylan's The Band calling themselves The Rolling Stones, I wonder what they look like as they come up for UK bus passes. I bet that Keith Richards fellow still looks like a teenager and his side kick, the Irishman Mick, is still swaggering around!!
