PIECES OF THE CROSS 

PIECES OF THE CROSS

Once upon a time there was only Graceland. Nowadays rock-and-roll pilgrims may choose to visit any number of Elvis-related shrines throughout the Mid-South, each with its own assortment of increasingly bizarre relics. If you thought that Elvis' Dilaudid bottles, part of Dr. Nick's "Memories of Elvis" exhibit at Hollywood Casino, was the creme de la tacky, think again. The Rockabilly Hall of Fame of Jackson, Tennessee, which recently announced that its annual rockabilly festival will henceforth be held in August to coincide with the influx of Presley-related tourists, boasts the weirdest bit of memorabilia to surface to date: The Hall of Fame is displaying the accursed defibrillator and paddles that failed to revive our King all those years ago.
