"More people today should see him not simply as a performer, but as an artist with a great soul."

sure they try just see the elvis by the presleys or the new text of the tour dvd or the text when you take the tour :-(
If they didn't want to open themselves up to ridicule, why didn't they just stay quiet about their association with Elvis??? Ahhhh...but then again, that would not be profitable, would it?? Trust me, I wish that Pris had never opened her mouth...especially since she has proven to contradict herself so much. But since she has found it necessary to: 1) claim "widow" status, 2) write a book, 3) constantly be in the limelight where anything Elvis is concerned, (just to name a few), she must want the attention!
That said, let's just look at it this way....
Elvis didn't want all of the negative aspects of his life to be discussed and have every single and personal piece of it dragged through the mud, I'm sure. But it does happen! And it happens quite often...even on websites dedicated to him. So go figure! If it's good enough for Elvis, then it's certainly good enough for Pris, or anyone else who continues to squeeze out a profit off of a dead man's legacy!
Perhaps instead of a making a place on the forum that is dedicated to the "Pris haters", we should instead just make it fair all the way around and forbid negative posts about ANYONE...at least that way Elvis wouldn't get raked over the coals for his shortcomings! And before someone fires off and says: "But Elvis was a junkie"...let's remember that the issue here doesn't seem to be whether or not these "bashing" topics are true or false. The issue seems to be that some people are tired of hearing negative things about Pris....and some are tired of hearing negative things about Elvis too!
Same thing, just a different aspect...
Daddy, I miss you more every day. You will always be my hero..
