[quote=john carpenter;231360]The only "habit" i know of is overindulgence in everything he did. I'm not knocking Elvis. At least he didn't scratch his butt in public.(a man thing)[/quote
You may not be knocking Elvis, but you're knockin' the rest of us guys. Most of us know how to behave in public. To what do you base the comment
'a man thing' on? Have you done a survey?
well we just assume most rude things like scratching your butt in public come from men as we think us as ladies are perfect lol
Never really paid much attention to it until you pointed it out. People do things for comfort or just habit.
I think that's we old people called fidegty! It's rather a cute habit, and I've always
wondered if he wasn't ADHD. My youngest is and has much of the same habits and
definitely that childish energy [shooting off fireworks,etc]!
Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go
I think its just a nervous habit-we all have them. I bite my lip at times and rub my wrists, first the right then the left. Its a defense mechanism to make me feel comfortable in uncomfortable situations I guess.
With all due respect we're not discussing Elvis with food, drugs, sex, women. I find your post disrespectful to him. I think a lot of the time people get confused with Elvis the image and Elvis the man. Elvis knows what went on behind closed doors and I don't think anyone should comment on it, its private.
So let's please stick with the habit that this topic was intended for, IMO he did it cos he was nervous or he was distracting his mind away from something
You ask how long I love you, I'll tell you true,
until the Twelfth of Never, I'll still be loving you
i've also noticed he scratches his head quite a lot in concerts, particularly later on
well if he was scratching his head then either he had head lice or it was just a habbit we all have them i'm sure
Elvis used his hands while talking and i notice that Lisa Marie does the same thing when doing interviews ect.
Another habit Elvis had in that whever eating a sandwich,he always held it with BOTH hands!
You can spot him doing just that in many pics and in the early part of King Creole,before leaving for school.

You Remember That Donach Ya?

I think he did that when he was nervous. I play with my hands and fingers, too when I'm tense about something. I've never seen Vernon do it though.
