    I HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOU ON ALL POINTS MY GRANDMOTHER PRETTY MUCH RAISED ME WHEN I WASN'T IN BOARDING SCHOOL. AND YES YOU NEVER FORGET I LOVE ELVIS VERY MUCH AND HIS FANS KEPT HIM FROM BEING ABLE TO DO THINGS THAT NORMAL PEOPLE . I THINK HE WAS JUST A GOOD OLD COUNTRY BOY WITH A LOT OF MONEY

    I remember hearing Elvis for the first time when I was in high school. The song was "Don't be cruel" and I was mesmerized by this voice coming over the radio. I looked at my mom who was as awestruck as I. We lived in the Louisiana Bayous and we really couldn't determine if Elvis was white or black. It did not matter. Oh, he had a "one in a million" voice that all the vocal training in the world does not give one. I skipped school the day Elvis was filming "King Creole" in the French Quarter in New Orleans, hoping to catch a glimpse. I also attended several of his concerts. My mother continued as his life-long fan. When she died, my sister and I placed the Elvis postal stamps in her coffin. I, too, believe he would have evolved in his music much as an earlier poster wrote. Yesterday, I played his music and watched some of those god-awful movies of his and prayed that his soul is at peace. Thanks for allowing me a trip down memory lane.

    I don't really know how he would do today. I can tell you that (having lived in and around Memphis for the last 30+yrs.) that on his birthday and his death anniversary...it is just crazy crowded around his estate!

    Yesterday there was a huge crowd from all over the world standing outside for hours in 18-19 degree weather to see and hear Priscilla, Lisa Marie and her 2 kids (teenage grandkids of Elvis's). I personally think they are nuts, but to each his own.

    Elvis had done more for the city of Memphis in his death than he ever would have if he were still alive today. But...who's to say what would have happened? You can't rewrite history and you can't predict the future....so...its just an interesting premise. :lol:

    I went to two of his concerts -one of which I sat on the front row. I have a scarf from that concert. When he handed it to me, we were the only two people in the building (or so it seemed). I believe that he would still be holding his own.

    I'm with Madquilter on this. He would still be a challenge to anyone.
