Yep Getlo, I agree it's all in the perception of Elvis. Some people always see "the glass half empty (sorry). Elvis was always nervous in interviews etc. He wasn't any good at speech making, he slurred and he stammered but that was just him so I guess if anyone wanted to think that, he was never without being under the influence of something his whole life....even as a little kid, but then I guess he could have gotten into his mother's medications .
It's is stupid to go overboard about him being a "saint" but then again some go overboard about him being just the opposite.
