1) Elvis Presley Quotes:


"Be at war with your vices; at peace with your neighbors, and let every NEW YEAR find you a better man." -- Benjamin Franklin

"It was Elvis that got me interested in music. I've been an Elvis fan since I was a kid."

Elton John

"The first concert I attended was an Elvis concert when I was eleven. Even at that age he made me realize the tremendous effect a performer could have on an audience."


"Elvis was a giant and influenced everyone in the business."

Isaac Hayes

"I learned music listening to Elvis' records. His measurable effect on culture and music was even greater in England than in the States."

Mick Fleetwood

"I remember Elvis as a young man hanging around the Sun studios. Even then, I knew this kid had a tremendous talent. He was a dynamic young boy. His phraseology, his way of looking at a song, was as unique as Sinatra's. I was a tremendous fan, and had Elvis lived, there would have been no end to his inventiveness."

B.B. King

"I don't think there is a musician today that hasn't been affected by Elvis' music. His definitive years — 1954-57 — can only be described as rock's cornerstone. He was the original cool."

Brian Setzer

2) Music Legends Biography Article:


On July 26, Presley began a month long appearance at the International Hotel. This set the course for all of his future performances.

His fee for four months was over a $1 million. Riding the crest of the comeback Presley released a series of top singles, including "In the Ghetto," "Suspicious Minds," "Don't Cry Daddy," and The Wonder of You".

Presley began touring again, his shows selling out and frequently breaking box office records.

Two on tour documentaries were released Elvis: That's the Way It Is (1970) and Elvis On Tour (1972), the latter which won the Golden Globe Award for Best Documentary.

Outwardly, Presley was more popular than ever and one of the biggest personality cults in modern history was taking hold.

Off stage Presley was plagued with self doubt, poor management, and a basic dissatisfaction with his life.

He repeatedly threatened to quit show business, but debts and financial obligations to his large extended family, employees, and assorted hangers on made that impossible. Presley turned to drugs.

After leaving the army he became wary of the public and would often rent whole movie theatres and amusement parks that he would visit at night.

By the late Sixties he was an almost total recluse.

Although evidence that Presley began taking drugs shortly after began performing or while in the army, his abuse of prescription drugs increased during the last years of his life.

Through all this he remained highly spiritual and publicly denounced the use of recreational drugs.

Interview with RED:

TS: Did you and Elvis sneak into many shows in Vegas?

We sneaked into a lot of them, yeah. That’s what he did before, see we were there a week early to rehearse then we’d go through the 4 weeks of hell, then we’d stay for the week after to unwind, and he went to (shows), especially Tom Jones, he would go to as many shows as he could, Andy Williams.

We were talking earlier about him socialising with people. He did. He would always invite Tom Jones over and the quartet was always up there, and after doing a show for an hour and a half or whatever he would go upstairs and Tom Jones would come over and Elvis and the group would sing.

Tom Jones maybe joined in a couple of times but Andy Williams, people like that, he liked to invite them over and stay up, so that’s what we did after the show.

Elvis was always singing, he loved to have the gospel quartet up there and the Sweet Inspirations and they would sing gospel songs, whatever, and just have a good time.

Were there lots of girls?

There was hundreds of girls, in fact my wife one time was there and I took her up to see him. I mean, that’s what he wanted. He wanted an audience of just people to talk, he had his religious quotes and he liked to talk to all these people.

Of course he would be looking through the crowd and seeing how they look, but that was the norm after the show to unwind, he wanted a lot of people up in the suite and there always were a lot of people up there.

Would you say, and I know some of the women would want to know this, but would you say that Elvis Presley was a predatory male?

OK. There’s a before and after. When he first went to Vegas, and I guess the first movies, no female was safe, but in the later years Linda was there or Priscilla was there. In the last couple of years I can’t think of anybody but just whoever he was going with at the time, Linda, the other girl (can’t think of her name), and the rest of them were just somebody to talk to.

That’s the truth. I guess he was getting old! He had these books that people would bring him, some of them a little strange, but he was into that more than anything else. He was beginning to see things in the sky and things like that.

5) Editor’s Notes & Humor:

Editor’s Note: .


Living on Earth may be expensive, but it does include a free trip around the sun every year.

How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on.

Birthdays are good for you; the more you have, the longer you live.

Happiness comes through doors you didn't even know you left open.

Ever notice that the people who are late are often much jollier than the people who have to wait for them?

Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us.

If Super Markets are lowering prices every day, how come nothing is free yet?

You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened.

We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors... but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

Have an awesome day, and know that someone who thinks you're great has thought about you today!
