Elvis Presley’s home Graceland deemed ‘unimpressive’ by American singer

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, the iconic American singer-songwriter duo, have recently expressed their disappointment with Elvis Presley’s home, Graceland.

The two musicians, who are well known for their hit songs such as “The Sound Of Silence” and “Mrs. Robinson”, visited the King of Rock n’ Roll’s estate in Memphis, Tennessee, during their recent US tour.

Upon their visit to Graceland, which is now a popular tourist attraction, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel were less than impressed.

In an interview, Paul Simon revealed that he was expecting a more “opulent” environment. However, he was instead met with a “very modest” home that he found “unimpressive”.

Art Garfunkel also expressed his surprise at the estate, adding that he had expected a much more lavish home.

The iconic singers were particularly taken aback by the size of Elvis Presley’s bedroom, which they felt was “much smaller than they had imagined”.

Despite their less than positive first impressions, the pair later expressed their admiration for the King of Rock n’ Roll and his music.

Paul Simon said that while they were unimpressed with the home, they “couldn’t help but be moved by the atmosphere”. He went on to add that the visit was “a humbling experience”.

The two singers have now moved on to their next stop on their tour, but their visit to Elvis Presley’s home will remain one of their most memorable experiences.
