Arkansas King Of Clubs Where Elvis Played Destroyed!

Bob  King’s renowned watering hole was completely destroyed by fire at approximately 1 a.m. Monday.The legendary local landmark contained countless memorabilia from the various artists who performed there during the years.  Elvis Presley, Conway Twitty and Johnny Cash are some of the more notable acts to have passed through the doors at the nightclub, located just north of Swifton on the stretch of blacktop now known as Rock ‘n’ Roll Highway 67.  It was the last original landmark along the ceremonial highway. The blaze is currently under investigation by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department, but authorities are uncertain exactly what triggered the flames.
