The guy that inspired John Lennon
Suspicious Minds live has a hell of a bass player.
He obviously looks awful. Drugged beyond the capacity of most normal,human beings, the performace you posted has been described as an artist literally fight for his life and revealing what was left of his soul. Like an accident, you cant turn away yet it is hard to not be moved.
Howard claims Elvis was an anti-semetic racist red neck.
Yeah but Howard's a fucking idiot. To be honest even if Elvis was racist, it was a different time.
the lost Elvis home movies
With that said, as fucked up as he was.. all he had to do was tilt his head and wink.
A lot of people have accused Elvis of stealing the black man's music, when in fact almost every black solo entertainer copied his stage mannerisms from Elvis.
There have been pretenders. And there have been contenders. But there is only one King.
When I first heard Elvis' voice I just knew that I wasn't going to work for anybody; and nobody was going to be my boss. Hearing him for the first time was like busting out of jail.
Elvis is the greatest cultural force in the twentieth century. He introduced the beat to everything, music, language, clothes, it's a whole new social revolution
the 60's comes from it.
I love that opening "We-e-e-e-e-ll..."
I was watching an Elvis movie the other night with my wife.
Sound was turned off. We were playing a R&B various artists compilation called "Savage Kicks Volume 5".
My wife commented on how much El resembled Brando or James Dean ...same kind of method actor moves and facial moves -contortions or grimaces or whatever.
I guess he imitated people who'd impressed him.
Certainly the case with his early music -Elvis was definitely copping the sounds of the Black gospel singers.
No...I can't make it smaller.
Liked Elvis as a kid but after he got out of the army his popularity dpopped and with drugs he became a caricature of his former self.
Elvis, Cash, Perkins and Jerry Lee.
