The folliculitis according to the "novel" (which i used the word novel in a sarcastic tone, as I did the word journalism)..was not on as you said "Little Elvis"...you did not read the book closely?
No, the ..err...what am I supposed to call this piece of.."history"..a book, a novel a ragnovello?? Whatever it is deemed or not..was not a difficult/bothersome type of emotional evoking type of anything to me at all. It was garbage. I said before I had heard/read the negatives before listening to the music of Elvis, nothing was surprising in the supposed "facts" to me, what was surprising and I will say it again and again...was the "fact" his "buds" (sarcasm on..in case you don't catch that one) contributed to it. "Friends/Companions" whatever.
"Some fans can't take the truth"...again..I've said before I feel like a third party looking in. I am not of the blind faith type of "fan" of any artist (and it's ok for those who are, sarcasm is turned off..) If, whomever chooses to believe the stories in that historical whatever it's called, fine by me. Do not demand all to do so.
