Speaking of Elvis, i saw the 1970 special called "Elvis, that's the way it is" - i think he was probably around 35 at the time and man he just killed. This is before the drugs and the other stuff was completely taken over. But, man, that 1970 Elvis was a bad a-s-s - he did this version of "You've lost that lovin' feeling" and then a version of "Get Back" - it was amazing.
GH died last year and it's hard to believe only two Beatles left
I actually agree with you on this one, Speers. "That's the Way it Is" is a great documentary/film. That early 70's Elvis was just RIGHT ON. Actually, I think it started with the '68 Comeback Special. Between about 68 and 72, Elvis was the best performer on earth. Hands down. It was about 73 and the Hawaii Special when he started to go down.
