    what will Elvis's legacy be like in 10 years?

    I wonder about this? Lisa has little interest, and her children seem pretty removed from it as well.

    the fans will keep his legacy alive i guess but with generations to come it will slowly be errasen. I wonder if Priscilla will stop her appearences related to Elvis that Lisa will carry on. I doubt that very much.
    It's hard NOT to imagine Elvis as perfect; how else could someone be THAT good looking, THAT talented, THAT generous & THAT charismatic

    No worries. You can't deny the greatness in the music and his influence on all who followed.

    I don't think so.
    I think it will stay as long as there are Elvis fans in the world.

    The way i see it, is aslong as EPE keep reaching out to new fans, there will always be Elvis.

    Like myself for example, im 21 i have 60 years + of being an Elvis fan.

    the problem with the Elvis legacy is that Sony owns his recordings - at least the ones that aren't public domain

    and the estate owns his image and some works - but they don't seem to care overmuch about quality packages

    if you look at the shop on the official site - movies, music and dvds are lumped into one category - and largely lost in the listings for clothes, pictures, knickknacks and the other crap they sell


    Sony is interested in compliations and greatest hits - little thought to Elvis' vast recordings or fan interest


    so, I rely on companies like www.memphisrecordingservice.com and other bootleggers to put together quality packages

    I agree. The problem is when the generation of fans which are (about) Elvis' age die off. I don't think there are enough younger fans to replace them.......I hope I am wrong!!!!

    not sure either that Lisa will replace her mom in that fuction and certainly i see not do the grandkids that job either. They never even met him, and don't seem to be told a lot about him either.

    When the generation dies that were kids of fans , i think his name will keep lingering on ofcourse and the life (his life) they will come to know will be a partly truth partly fictive but the BIG intrest will diminish.

    Like we are not all that intrested anymore in great actors and singers who died around WWII and before

    The names still ring a bell with us but we are not really into them anymore, you know what i mean....

    IMO Lisa is a private person she'll have her own special memories of her time with her Father and I'm sure she will pass those memories onto her children. Lisa loved her Father so much that's why she respects his memory this way.

    Lisa keeps his memory alive in her songs and also her charity work and I'm sure her Dad would be very proud of her.

    I first heard his voice when I was 5 years old, I didn't see him I just heard him and that's all it took for me to want to hear more from him. So IMO as long as the record companies keep producing his music, there will be fans.
    You ask how long I love you, I'll tell you true,
    until the Twelfth of Never, I'll still be loving you

    I think a lot of Lisa Marie telling fans of special memories of her father are just her telling fans what they want to hear.

    I think it's possible Elvis might not be proud of Lisa and if he were alive they might not be close

    bruno put it best. I think those who were around for it all feel like we know him intimately. we are die hards, so to speak. I don't see Lisa as becoming a person representing him like Priscilla has, like it or not, she seems to like being visually there.

    Excellent post.
    Consider that I fell in love (really!) with Elvis when I was 8 years old!
    I had a horrible childhood and life anyhow, so when Mom didn't like it, I soon had her in love with him too! LOL
    I am going on 63 and I haven't changed my mind one bit.
    Elvis is the only man who can still make my knees weak...many a handsome movie star such as Clint Walker and all his charming 6'7 was of course noticed by me. I'm human, but there is no one on this earth like Elvis Presley.
    There will never be one who can replace him, however talented and good looking.
    Josh Groban is a darling..very talented youngman...
    I can dismiss anyone who has ever been "Good and likable" except for ELVIS!
    Sooooooooo having rambled on and on, I doubt the young fans will ever let him die. So to speak. And his young family members may take over where 'Cilla" leaves off, and/or Lisa Marie....those new twin baby girls may grow up to be in love with their Granfather more than anyone could guess!

    What has been the trend up to now? That might point to where it's going.
