What a great heritage we have in Elvis.
Anyone who makes fun of me for loving Elvis I stick it up em' where it hurts the most..ha..ha..(I'm kidding!)Having said that, I do get defensive and protective over my favourite idol and regardless what others think of Elvis I still keep my head held high ,because deep down I know he is still reigning as the "King of rock and roll" .30 years since his passing, Elvis is still rocking the house!
I am only 27 years old, and fortunate to have parents who adored Elvis's music.From an early age Elvis's influence was already there.
I am a self taught guitarist for over 15 years now, and Elvis, through his music was definitely my mentor (particularly the very early Elvis music).Due to the diversity of his sound (ie Rock and Roll,Blues,R&B,Country,Gospel and Ballads alike)I was able to create my own style of playing.Elvis was the fire that ignited my passion for music.
When I am in my car I have Elvis blasting out of my speakers.My favourite song to drive to is a toss between Little Sister (love the guitar riffs on that)and Lawdy Miss Clawdy.I also have a couple of bumper stickers on the back, and on a few occassions I have over heard people walk pass and call out "Thank you- Thank you very much". I realised regardless wether people are fans or not Elvis still affects them either one way or another.But we the fans have Elvis, the precious treasure to behold in hearts forever and ever.
Elvis Presley is a force to be reckoned with wether dead or alive.He's left us with such a huge legacy that, I believe, may take a life-time to explore, Which I have made the decision to take the opportunity to ride this roller coaster of wonder -The world of Elvis Presley~~~~Oh what a joy...I can't hardly wait!!
