Yesterday would have been Elvis Presley's 75th birthday, and while Elvis, has indeed left the building, his spirit--and likeness--remains. For example, the GRAMMY museum honored the King by opening a new exhibit of rare photos yesterday, and folks with teeth as sweet as Presley's can taste the cupcake named for him at Crumbs Bakeshop. Celebrations continue through the weekend for Presley, and so we dove into our LAist's Featured Photos pool to find Elvis is all over Los Angeles, all the time. Happy 75th!
