we've probably all heard by now today is Elvis's birthday.
An interesting question I heard on the radio: How do you think Elvis would fare musically today. My feelings are music sure has changed alot since then but he did cross many fields like country, ballad, religious, rock. I just don't think the younger set, the "buyers" would gravitate to him as much as others.
Anxious to hear other opinions!
I never did think that Elvis' voice was all that hot, but he had charisma to no end.
Charisma is usually what makes or breaks a singer... I think Elvis would have done just fine in this day and age...
I think that he would have elvolved with the music trends...:wink:
I think he'd still have the same following he did in the day along with a few younguns. He would still be oozing velvety sensuality.
I think he knew how to play to the press and the public so I think he would still be great.
I believe Elvis would still be king, if he had gotten his weight issues resolved. He still played to the audience.
There are so many singers now who have the "Elvis sound" and are bringing in the crowds.
Tony Bennett has. Why not?
Elvis was and will always be the king! And if he was here with us still, we would be going Micheal who?
I don't know about today but I love Elvis' music and movies!!!
I'm listening to Elvis right now. Just sitting here all by myself listening and I have cold chills!!!!!
His voice is soooooo s-e-x-y.
But, what I'm really thinking about as I listen, is Lisa Marie. She didn't even get to know him. That hurts my heart.
Growing up, my father was an acoholic. As he grew older, he stopped drinking. I didn't like him when I was young. But, I had a father.
She didn't get to know the "King".
To end on a happy note... My father will be 95 years young on Feb. 4th and I might add he is very healthy. Starting to get a little dementia. Doing very good.
I love him dearly and could not imagine not ever knowing him.
Sorry...I had a moment there for a minute.
Happy Birthday Elvis
