That's a hard one to answer KPM. I sometimes feel in these threads that some would rather dwell on Elvis' problems and downfall and try to shove it down our throats rather than talk about what he accomplished musically for the world in his short lifetime, not to mention the humor, generosity, affection and being generally a very enjoyable person.
I hope the majority in the world is thinking more on his positive side than on the negative. So he made some wrong choices that some people feel they could have done so much better had it been them..........live with it and give the rest of us the right to lay it aside where trash belongs!
Yup, wearing my rose coloured glasses again.
