I hate reading stuff like that it gets me so p'ed-off. I can't stand all of this stuff he "stole" music, GIVE ME A BREAK!!!! Yeah so this no talent guy was going to record Teddy Bear, All Shook Up...ect. This guy is just a no-talent, mad at the world, never made it anywhere kind of guy. People get jealous of success. They see someone who has it all and they wish they had a tenth of the talent, looks and charisma.
This guy and anybody else that is jealous of Elvis needs to read The Penalty of Leadership that sounds like it was written about Elvis.
Whatsoever you write, or paint, or play, or sing, or build, no one will strive to surpass or to slander you, unless your work be stamped with the seal of genius.
Long, long after a great work or a good work has been done, those who are disappointed or envious continue to cry out that it cannot be done.
When a man’s work becomes a standard for the whole world, it also becomes a target for the shafts of the envious few.
Multitudes flocked to worship at the shrine of Wagner, while the little group of those whom he had dethroned and displaced argued angrily that he was no musician at all. Maybe the best line for this article because it is so true.
The Man Who Counts This is a nice speech that Elvis loved too. It says a lot to the critics.
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man tumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust, sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
- Theodore Roosevelt
Sorry for the rant but this stuff really makes me mad.
