Subject: Will Elvis be making a comeback?

Date: 09 Jan 05 - 09:37 PM

Because of the new sales promotion in the UK and the resulting number 1 hit Jailhouse Rock does anyone think it likely that The King will be cloned and put to the task of the long awaited world tour he failed in his lifetime to achieve? Please give your views on how likely this event is and be as creative or lateral as you like.

Whadya mean, comback? Come back? I don't think so. Elvis lives. He has his morning coffee regularly in Charlie's Cafe here in Woolloomooloo, Sydney, Australia, every morning after his walk around the Gardens. If he is in a good mood and the coffee is the right temperature he does a damn fine rendition of "Love Me Tender" (although I do like Jimmy Little's version a lot more). I thought he did it for me because he liked me but I am beginning to think he does it because he wants me to pay for his coffee. So come back music wise? I hope so. He needs the money.

Some quirky and very nice postings but does nobody have any recollections of seeing the great man in the flesh in any of his heydays (50s/60s70s). I have seen the videos and to see him playing Hound Dog on the Milton Berle Show is amazing, to see his 68 Comeback is electrifying (the greatest TV performance of all time?) and "That's The Way It Is" was there ever a better concert film about a single performer? The Voice, The Charisma, The Entertainer of the Century surely! Will he be back? I think it is a matter of time, just a matter of time.

Thank You All.

If Elvis does come back from Mars, or wherever he is, do you think he could cheer his daughter up a bit? Considering she is worth squillions of dollars she never seems particularly happy and her music is woeful. What she needs is that slip of the hip, and the leer, and twinkle in the eye.But she should avoid the Rhinestone Combat Suits and guns and hamburgers.

God Love Ya!

Elvis's comeback is based on a seeking of redemption. "In the Ghetto" is an ongoing curse which I'm not sure can be redeemed and the greater problem of an American voting public that continually gets it wrong is the bigger problem in terms of redemption thus ensuring that Elvis's continuing comebacks may well be a form of living purgatory? Lordy Lordy, Elvis and his ma would be proud of me for this one.

Elvis was a rather naive fellow, I think, basically a nice guy...and he did what his handlers advised him to do. This led to some pretty dreadful movies and some pretty dreadful songs along the way. Nonetheless, he was a truly great singer and performer. Footage of him performing in the early days is still riveting, in my opinion.

I found a book some time ago at my local library that was written by a woman who was supposed to have given birth to Elvis' lurve child, a daughter, when they were both about 21 (Elvis and this woman, not the daughter). In the photos the daughter did look like him, but the book wasn't well written so I didn't bother finishing it.

Elvis has left the room......

One Night is Number 1 on the UK Chart and listed as the 1000th number 1 in history for all time.

I cannot believe that intelligent people cannot appreciate a beautiful song of social awareness like In The Ghetto (The Vicious Circle). Please do yourself a favour and listen to it again without prejudice.

Elvis is the American Dream personified to many people around the world. However, the tragedy of the end of his life still inspires debate and conjecture to this day and will forever be played out in Theatres and on TV as a warning to anyone who dreams of superstardom. "Be careful what you wish for, it just might come true".

As for his movies he made a fortune for doing them and fans loved to see him and were happy to pay the admission. Isn't that a fair trade off? "Silly movies" most may have been but good old fashioned down home entertainment without smut, graphic sex and violence was what was required from him and Elvis gave his audience something the whole family could enjoy without trying to be pretentious and self indulgent in vying for critical acclaim above pleasing an audience as most so called actors of the day did.Some still knock him for a bad film, a poor album or for getting older and fatter but the fact remains he is still The King - who the f**k are you?

If you need more convincing simply watch The 68 COMEBACK SPECIAL there has never been a better performance by anyone and probably never will.

Here, here! I thought Jailhouse Rock was a terrific film and must admit I quite like "In The Ghetto" but do prefer his Sun Recordings and pre Army period to the rest of his output. The Special he did gives a real insight into his talent as a performer and even today stands up as top drawer entertainment especially when he sits and plays guitar with his buddies.

Best Wishes.
