At the end, Elvis was certainly "out to lunch". I mean he was found dead on the toilet while eating! Not exactly hygienic. But when it comes to
Elvis' influence in music, he was, indeed, the King.
Elvis had a wonderful voice and an unforgettably original singing style. His influence on Rock and Roll is indelible. He bridged the gap between
"black music" and "white music" and, thereby, made real "rock and roll" accessible to everyone.
One of my "secret desires" is to, one day, visit Graceland while totally immersed in the Elvis subculture. You know, I'd wear the big belt buckle,
comb back and grease my hair while spending the time trying to talk like Elvis....."thank you.....thankyouverymuch"
the benevolent tyrant has left the building.
