I do, SO MANY TIMES FRED!! just, very down hearted this go around. Our best buddy died back in January. And to say it took a toll on me and us all is an understatement. Sorry for the melancholia.

BA - there are obviously a lot of factors here but keeping focussed on the Elvis bit, the forum has provided many new Elvis friends. I travel solo to gigs up up to 200 miles away and back sometimes but meet up with fans here.

Even when that may not happen, sharing the joy of a great gig (with a rarity/one off thrown in) with the forum and other friends is great.

I think you enjoy seeing the man, recording the shows and sharing your experiences so much that maybe the combination of bad things this year has hit you harder than you think.

But even if this decision sticks, I’ll still look out for stray ticket stubs!

My prediction is that you’ll see a couple or few songs on Tuesday that even you have not seen before which will force you to update your list and reconsider!
It’s such a shame you had to break the heart you could have counted on

Sadness is a cruel beast.
