Rossi's Manager Denies Retirement Rumors

Valentino Rossi is not set to retire, the Italian's manager, Davide Brivio confirmed on Twitter on Monday morning. In the aftermath of the crash that saw Marco Simoncelli killed, struck by both Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi after being dragged across the track by his bike, rumors and speculation surged across the internet that the nine-time World Champion would hang up his helmet, upset at the death of his close friend Simoncelli.

But on Monday morning, Rossi's friend Alessio Salucci, better known as Uccio, posted on Twitter that retirement was not on Rossi's mind: "For those asking, Vale is absolutely not thinking of retiring," Uccio posted, adding "I am upset that this false news is circulating at a moment like this." Rossi's personal manager Davide Brivio added his own confirmation "Many are asking about Vale stopping races. This not absolutely true and I'm sorry even that I have to explain it…" Brivio posted.

MotoGP Star Dies in Crash Marco Simoncelli Dead

marco simoncelli
A week after Indycar racer Dan Wheldon died at the Las Vegas Indy 300, the racing world mourns the loss of another talented racer. Marco Simoncelli died today during the penultimate race of the 2011 MotoGP season in Malaysia.
Simoncelli?s fatal crash occurred just four minutes into the race. The Gresini Honda racer lost control of his motorcycle and swerved from the outside of the track to the inside, hitting the pavement in front of Valentino Rossi and Colin Edwards. The two MotoGP riders could not avoid Super Sic.
All About Bikes reports that Simoncelli lost his helmet in the crash and suffered serious injuries as Edwards and Rossi crashed into him. The race was red-flagged and subsequently cancelled as emergency workers rushed Simoncelli to the infield medical center, but first responders could not resuscitate the Honda racer.

Gladys and Elvis -- A Mothers' Day Commemorative Stamp ?

Photo of the Week: SuperSic Forever

As I gained access to the MotoGP paddock, and found opportunities to glimpse the riders' personalities, Marco Simoncelli was one of the first for whom I recognized that I could not draw such conclusions based solely on what I saw on TV. On a motorcycle, Simoncelli was ferocious, as the cat on the back of his helmet indicated. In person he was soft spoken, gentle, quick to smile and generous. Always a gracious participant with Riders for Health fundraising events, he courageously faced crowds who spoke no Italian and charmed them in his accented and limited English. He signed whatever people asked of him, and posed for photos with patience and grace.

"Elvis and Us" -- The King is now in a Beatles Museum

 

This past Wednesday, October 5, a new Elvis exhibit opened in England.  It is titled ?Elvis and Us,? and is stocked with a wonderful selection of items loaned by EPE.  Some of the rare artifacts have never even been displayed at Graceland.
 

 

The venue housing ?Elvis and Us? is ?The Beatles Story? in the Fab Four?s hometown of Liverpool.
 

 

The news report and links on Elvis.com/news do not mention what was moved out to make room for the Elvis exhibit, but it certainly covers a lot of space.
 

 

 

Of course, fans will do self guided audio tours with head phones.
 

 

And a short film featuring an interview with Priscilla seems inevitable.
 

 

What would an Elvis exhibit be without a jumpsuit or two?
 

 

Other items from Elvis? wardrobe and jewelry are a must, too.
 

 

You didn?t think Graceland would miss a good opportunity to sell Elvis merchandise, did you?
 

 

 

So far, all the pictures here have been about Elvis exclusively, but the exhibit does connect him and the Beatles wherever possible.  This wall shows the effect Elvis had on the young lads in Liverpool in the late 50s.  The striped shirt on the left was worn by Elvis in Jailhouse Rock.
 

 

The big Elvis/Beatles connection was the one time they met at his home in Bel Air, California on August 27, 1965.
 

 

This wall echoes the words Elvis spoke when the meeting got off to a stilted start.  The white bass guitar is the one Elvis strummed during the visit from the Beatles.
 

 

One of special items in the exhibit is the pool table from the home in Bel Air, which was used by Elvis? buddies and one or two of the Beatles that night.  It has never previously been offered for public display.  The Beatles? mop-top hairdos adapted better to a Q-ball design than Elvis? pompadour did.
 

 

So, if you are planning a trip to England any time in the next two years, be sure to include a day trip to Liverpool and take in ?Elvis and Us? at ?The Beatles Story? museum.

Fans Find Ways to Connect Elvis and Halloween


There are all sorts of Elvis costumes available at www.ShopElvis.com right now.  Certainly, it's fun for fans to dress themselves up as Elvis for Halloween.  However, some fans with artistic talents have created images that morph Elvis into iconic Halloween decorating and costume themes.  Here are some interesting ones.

 

Skeleton Elvis:

Neon Ghost Elvis:

 

Mummy Elvis:

 


That?s this year?s scrapbook of Elvis Halloween images.  Check out previous ones here and here.  I hope the zombie pictures weren?t to gruesome.  You should have seen some of the skeleton Elvis pictures that didn?t get used.  Nobody seems to have created images that connects Elvis to two other popular Halloween icons, bats and witches, so here is a cartoon drawing combining a bat, a sexy witch and an Elvis who looks like something out of Dr. Frankenstein?s laboratory.
