Like I said, a few years after his passing I eventually realized what Elvis *had* been. I started really hearing his older songs and appreciating them. I realized just how sad a life he must have had.
Rock and Roll slash Celebrity is full of people who were used and spit out. There will never be another Elvis, and partly that is a good thing. Elvis couldn't even handle being Elvis.
Elvis Aaron Presley
In memoriam, here is the first Elvis Presley song I ever knew....his last big hit, "Burning Love" from 1972. Written by Dennis Linde. Clip is from the concert movie "Aloha Hawaii" in 1973.
