My grandmother loved Elvis and through her I got to know The King’s music. Back in the 1950’s Rock and Roll was considered by many as ‘immoral’ works of the devil, especially Elvis, with his ‘swivel hips’ A very radical method of dancing at the time… tame compared to todays dancing, where.. lets not go there. I don’t know what brand the aviators were, but I do know the Nautic by Neostyle. Elvis was known for his bold and gold sunglasses.
