"He is rockabilly. Mean, surly, nasty... In that movie, he couldn't give a fuck about nothin'... except rockin' and rollin', livin' fast, dyin' young, and leavin' a good lookin' corpse. I watch that hillbilly and I want to be him SO bad...

Elvis looked good. I ain't no fag, but Elvis was prettier than most women. Most women. You know, I always said... If I had to fuck a guy... I mean had to... If my life depended on it...

...I'd fuck Elvis."


Clarence Worley - True Romance






ELVIS!







elvking.jpg

Elvis Aron Presley
"THE KING"
(Jan 8th 1935 - Aug 16th 1977)





Forget what you know about Elvis... And FORSHAME there isn't already a thread here on The King. Elvis Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, into a family living just above the poverty line; and became (arguably) the greatest entertainer of all time. He is iconic. His face, his music, recognizable across the world. His legacy lives on - indeed popular music as we now know it can be traced entirely back to him. He broke boundaries: He helped create the concept of the "teenager". And, of course, he was responsible for "Rock And Roll". There have been many pretenders to his throne - but Elvis IS THE KING.




"Before Elvis, there was nothing."
John Lennon





Yes, forget what you know. Forget that later Elvis. Forget the Las Vegas, Cheeseburger, Fat, Drug-Addled man that he became. Bad management and sheer ignorance of 'Celebrity' and 'Stardom' (which hadn't existed to this degree before) led to that. When he died, alone, and ignominously, in his Graceland bathroom - Elvis was the most famous man in the Western World...

This is not a comedy thread - dealing with that bloated, sweaty, shadow of a man going through the motions on stage - this is a thread for seeing the REAL Elvis...


That man was BEAUTIFUL:




elvprof.jpg elvsmile.jpg
elvkiss.jpg




Elvis SHOOK the world. He shook it all up. And all these preening plastic pop-stars OWE him. Don't dismiss the King. If it wasn't for him, chances are your own favourite :heart: heart-throb :heart: wouldn't exist...

He had it all. Sure, he wasted it, and his end was a sad indictment of that 'Superstar' lifestyle: One that so many other stars would follow in his untimely wake.


But up there, on that stage in the 50's and 60's, he ROCKED:




elv68.jpg elvcroon.jpg
elvstage.jpg elvsing68.jpg
elvsweat.gif elvback68.jpg




So, give the man another chance. And see him in his glorious prime: THIS IS ELVIS!

Thank you for correcting this long-standing oversight on this site. He was more than just a man he was a time. I am proud to have been of that last generation to have any knowledge or understanding first hand of the impact of his work. Now the Presley family IS complete here. Thank you.

"There are at least 85,000 Elvis's around the world, compared to only 170 in 1977 when Elvis died. At this rate of growth, experts predict that by 2019 Elvis impersonators will make up a third of the world's population..."

Then, when all else is exhausted, they even draft Elvii in - involuntarily:

Put a chain around my neck

Your Teddy Bear

I don't wanna be a tiger
'Cause tigers play too rough
I don't wanna be a lion
'Cause lions ain't the kind you love enough
Just wanna be, your Teddy Bear
Put a chain around my neck
and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be (oh let him be)
Your Teddy Bear

Baby let me be, around you every night
Run your fingers through my hair
And cuddle me real tight
Oh let me be (oh let him be)
Your Teddy Bear

I don't wanna be a tiger
'Cause tigers play too rough
I don't wanna be a lion
'Cause lions ain't the kind you love enough
Just wanna be, your teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck
and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be (oh let him be)
Your teddy bear
Oh let me be (oh let him be)
Your teddy bear

I just wanna be your teddy bear

A terrible sadness. I'd like to think it was because he was 'The First', you know? But then you look at the stars of today - and the paparazzi etc... And you think, no, probably not. :/

I like these lyrics by Gillian Welch/David Rawlings - the words capture his humble beginning, brilliance, and his sad decline. It's a great song:


Elvis Presley Blues


I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
Just a country boy that combed his hair
And put on a shirt his mother made and went on the air
And he shook it like a chorus girl
And he shook it like a Harlem queen
He shook it like a midnight rambler,
baby,
Like you never seen

I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
How he took it all out of black and white
Grabbed his wand in the other hand and he held on tight
And he shook it like a hurricane
He shook it like to make it break
And he shook it like a holy roller, baby
With his soul at stake

I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
He was all alone in a long decline
Thinking how happy John Henry was that he fell down and died
When he shook it and he rang like silver
He shook it and he shine like gold
He shook it and he beat that steam drill, baby
Well bless my soul

He shook it and he beat that steam drill, baby
Well bless my soul, what's wrong with me?

I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
Just a country boy that combed his hair
Put on a shirt his mother made and he went on the air
And he shook it like a chorus girl
He shook it like a Harlem queen
He shook it like a midnight rambler, baby
Like he never seen...

CHARRO!



Elvis filmed Charro! in 1968, just after his triumphant Comeback Special. He was truly at the height of his powers, but chose to do a film - the first one since his debut Love Me Tender - that didn't contain any songs sung by him. It was a bit of a flop, a stark departure from the knockabout, sing-a-long fare his fans were used to. Plus, HE HAD A BEARD :shock: , and some people could NOT handle that..!

I don't know... I kind of like it. It's interesting to see him looking slightly different for a change. And, every man should grow a beard at least once in his life. Don't you think? Just to see, if nothing else...



Anyway - here's THE KING, con barbe:
