For many people, it’s hard to believe that the star has been dead for so many years and it’s amazing to see that there are still a lot of his fans out there.

After Elvis died on Aug. 16, 1977 at 42 from heart disease, his ex-wife Priscilla Presley, formed Elvis Presley Enterprises, opened Graceland to the public and solidified the legal rights to make money on Elvis’ name and image.

Thousands of his fans, many carrying pictures of him were at his’s Memphis home on Thursday to mark the 30th anniversary of his death. His fans began lining up on Wednesday evening, to file up the driveway of his’s Graceland estate and past his grave in a candlelight vigil that continued into Thursday.
