Any Elvis fans lurking the board

  1. Just thought I'd check around to see if there were any fellow E-fans lurking.....

    if so check out this site on the web. It has an audio library and you can hear some rare tracks.

    Anyone else have a cool site you'd like to post? Please share. Elvis Presley

    Your thread looked lonely without a reply, so I thought I'd jump in. I'm not an Elvis fan, sorry...but I have a good friend who is about the biggest Elvis nut there ever could be.

    In one of Dave Barry's books, he goes on a trip to Graceland and talks to Elvis fans...it's very touching; he's usually poking fun at stuff, but he was really great with the Elvis section.

    thanks for posting...
    I just started the thread about 15 to 20 minutes ago... so hopefully some fans will come out of hiding. I know their out there.... they just have to admit it and come forward. LOL!:roll

    When I was a teenager, the Beatles were "it" and Elvis was passe...

    The Beatles are still "it" for me but I have learned to appreciate Elvis, and really enjoy his music!

    I even saw him walking across campus last year...at least it sure looked like him...and Oklahoma is not a big venue for Elvis impersonators...

    both were before my time.... but my whole family were Elvis fans so I learned to appreciate his music very young. I remember I was 4 when he died. I can still remember my mom crying. I use to listen to him on the old 45 records. I was just born in the wrong era.... I guess.

    the thing is... he is STILL attracting a fan base after ALL THESE YEARS. Not just the old but young, young people. I think that really shows what a music revolution he was! People are still into him 25 years after his death. That in itself is a phenomenon.

    I like the Beatles,too. John Lennon's "Imagine" is awesome.

    Well, I may not care for him, but I do have to give him "props" because the Beatles revered him, so anyone good enough for the Fab4 is good enough for me.

    However, country music...I would not rule out the use of tactical nuclear weapons to rid the earth of acts like Faith Hill, Dixie Chicks (how dare they caterwaul their way through "Landslide"...what was Stevie Nicks thinking?) and all of those other "country/crossover" acts.

    I love Elvis! When I was growing up, I swore I was gonna marry him! I cried when he died.... I was young......

    Anyhow.. My coworkers and I were In Memphis fro 48 hrs recruiting flight attendants back in 89! and we visited GRACELAND! It was great to actually be there and visit!

    It was totally tacky! we got to see the JUngle Room, and his airplane the Lisa Marie, and the tour bus!

    Love Elvis! grew up listening to him because my mom is an Elvis freak,lol. He was at Fort Chaffee 2 miles from where I live when he was in the army. I posted this once before, but I will post it again.....when he was stationed here he sat on the front porch of my Mom's best friend and played his guitar and sang. They have it on reel to reel packed away somewhere....I thought that was so cool......

    I too love Elvis. I grew up listening to him. I know almost all of his songs. I have seen all his movies too. But, I know he is dead now and that is it. I mean I am not one of those who believe he is still alive somewhere!

    I have always been a fan, but I think primarily because we share a bond (sort of) in that he had the audacity to die on my 8th birthday. He totally ruined my birthday party. Everyone was crying like crazy. I remember asking my stepmother why everyone was crying, I thought I had done something wrong. She then tells me that everyone is crying because Elvis died and they really loved him, to which I reply in 8 year old fashion "SO, I like him too, but you don't see me crying". I spent the rest of my party in my room. (I never did care for the stepmom all that much). I have felt a weird sort of bond ever since.
