Daily Dose of Music History (August 13, 2015). On this day in 1958, Elvis Presley’s mother, Gladys, died. At her funeral two days later, Presley was so overcome with grief he was unable to stand and had to be supported. Over 500 police were at the service to keep the gigantic crowd at bay.
Happy Birthday: David Crosby, Larry Graham (bass guitar, Sly and The Family Stone), Sharon Bryant (Atlantic Starr), and Kevin Cadogan (Third Eye Blind).
