1st post and a few grumbles.
1st post and hope to be of many more to come as I learn more about the man himself and his music. I don't know too much really compared to many on here but always learning as I read these posts.
I really like his music (more tracks I've not heard too). Yet what I hate is the "jokes" and criticism EP seems to take just because he was at the top of his game. Similar to Michael Jackson where people will make fun of him because of his appearence (as people did about EP's weight and medication habits). These guys will have there faults there not angels there just regular guys with extra ordinary talents in my view.
With the election just gone in the UK I was looking at the results of my local election and came across this "political party"
I know its a monster raving loony party style organisation but this is just making fun of Elvis to carry a joke message across. Its just things like that, that irritate me when people make fun of him. The record sales etc speak for itself he was great at what he did. Yet because he was top of his game people feel the need to knock him down which isn't right and wouldn't be accepted if he wasn't famous and had put on the weight etc People would of said they were cruel calling someone because of health problems yet cos he was a global superstar it was seemed funny or acceptable.
I don't want to dwell on the negatives as I love his music and I like his films :D
(sorry to rant on)
