    If you could have been part of Elvis's life

    In what area would it have been. I would have loved to been a sound engineer. First off I love the creativity of doing that. And I would have loved to been at a rehersal when things were fun and casual. And I would have loved seeing him lay down the first tracks and more and seeing a song come togeather.

    I think that either Steve Binder or Chips Moman would have been interesting because we now know what a creatively satisfying time this was for Elvis, not to mention incredibly successful. Watching Elvis come alive during that FIRST sit-down performance was just unbelieveble. He has never sung with such passion and vulnerability. That performance is no less than amazing. Also, the Memphis Sessions at Chips Moman's studio was also a professional milestone for Elvis and I think that Chips was spot on when he produced the music made during these sessions. Just listening to the outtakes during the American sessions is phenomenal!!!!!!! Elvis sings with such passion and enthusiasm that he's like a man who is dying of thirst and is finally given that long-awaited drink.

    I would've liked to been Elvis's valet or Driver. I could listen in on all their naughty jokes.

    It must take the most extraordinary mental discipline to make love to a man with that haircut and keep a straight face.

    This was my first choice, but seeing that he had so many, it just seemed like a very crowded catagory. (and I don't like to share!!).

    you know what

    Could somebody please explain to me what Priscilla and Stone had in common
    I know he was really into Karate and Priscilla studied Karate for a little bit but I think that's it.

    Hmm....VERY interesting question!!!

    I guess I'd have to say a member of the Memphis Mafia just because of the unlimited access those guys had to Elvis, Graceland, etc.

    I would just like to be his friend who got to hang around with him sometimes(just like patty parry) but can't say l would want to be his lover cause i'am not the kinda girl who could handle my man out flirting with others, so being a friend would do me just fine.
