Elvis Presley


Recommended Posts

"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 Aron Presley


(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:


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:




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..."

The New Scientist; December 2003

There is a world out there, a world populated by Elvii...

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:
