    The Passion of Elvis

    The Passion of Elvis
    Watching Presley's "'68 Comeback Special" is a total religious experience, proving once and for all that the King was no false idol.

    I read in the article this:

    "That division was between the people who were still willing to watch Elvis and get what the great critic Lester Bangs, seeing Elvis, 'an erection of the heart'".

    Can any of you xplain me this, please?
    Let the stars fade and fall, and I won't care at all, as long as I have you.
