Elvis Presley Endures as a Pop Culture Legend

Bruce Gingrich, the CEO of Lifechek Drug, the largest independently owned drugstore chain in the United States, is a successful entrepreneur in Texas. A fan of classic rock and roll, Bruce Gingrich enjoys the music of Elvis Presley and other iconic performers.

Born in a two-room house in Mississippi, Elvis Aaron Presley combined the popular music of his day with gospel and rhythm and blues to create a novel music sound that influenced American popular culture.

Throughout his illustrious career, Elvis recorded many hit records and starred in 33 successful movies. In addition, Elvis headlined record-breaking tours and became a premier performer in Las Vegas. He earned three Grammy Awards, along with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Every year, fans gather at Elvis’ Graceland home in Memphis, Tennessee, to pay tribute to the entertainment legend who passed away in 1977. Although his career peaked in the 1950s and 1960s, Elvis draws attention from younger fans, with the bulk of the fans on the Elvis Presley Facebook page being under the age of 35. Elvis also attracts American pop culture fans who may not appreciate his music but do appreciate his enduring legacy.

A Distinctive Museum for Visitors to Glasgow

The CEO of Lifechek Drug, Bruce Gingrich now oversees more than 30 pharmacies across the country. He also has involved himself in the service industry, founding several pubs in Texas. Outside of his dedication to entrepreneurship, Bruce Gingrich has traveled across the world, recently visiting the city of Glasgow in Scotland.

The Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel in Glasgow holds an impressive array of bicycles, trains, cars, and ship models. The museum even hosts historic interactive displays, including three streets with model shops from 1895 to the 1980s. Replicas include an Italian cafe from the 1930s and an Edwardian photography studio. Right outside the museum rests the Tall Ship at Riverside, the only Clyde-built sailing ship in the United Kingdom.

Outfitted with metal curving walls, the Riverside Museum hearkens back to the shipyards on the Clyde where ships were built under shipwright’s capable guidance. Open at 10 a.m. every day (except Friday and Sunday when it opens at 11 a.m.), the museum accepts visitors until 5 p.m. If desired, visitors may participate in the regular guided tours.
