Jacko is, well jacko---a compltete nut case. Nick cage is so obsessed with Elvis, I'm not surprised that they apparently didn't make it. That's too bad. I love him as an actor, but....

It depends on what you mean by the "later years." Some of his 70s tours were the best shows of his life. And his voice was at the most powerful of his career. Especially Early 70s.


I was pretty specific when I said, "the late '70s burned out Elvis."


I know, I wasn't talking about you. I was responding to Aujouret.

I have some of the later years videos of Elvis, but as it gets towards the very last years, I don't like to see them as they are too sad. I am a big fan of the early years. I get sad seeing the movies as I feel he was too talented for lots of them. Some are good, like King Creole. As George said, I felt sorry for him as he didn't have company like the other Beatles did and that's why he got lost. He was very sexy in that 1968 appearence he did. Whaoa- that black leather suit. Yummy.

He wasn't only sexy in the '68 Special, Auj, he actually gave a phenomenal and classic PERFORMANCE too! LOL. Anyway, I agree with you about the films. It has been said many times that E took acting VERY seriously. And he really was a good actor. It shows in certain scenes. But the majority of the time, the studio kept giving him these crap roles that didn't challenge him. But you know, back during that time, E didn't really have much of a choice. He was under contract, etc. etc. George may have said something, but I think it was actually Ringo on Anthology who said The Beatles always felt sorry for Elvis. Because at least THEY had each other to experience the ups and downs of stardom with. All Elvis had was his "entourage" (The Memphis Mafia), but only HE really understood what it felt like. He had to go through it alone his entire career. Pretty sad.

Well, it's exactly a year ago today . . . and I'm going to have a listen to Brainwashed when I get back home in a little while . . . and probably have a good cry with it.

I think I'm going to look over my copy of Time magazine with George on the cover holding a sunflower. I think that picture captured the essence of George more than any other. It is a sad day, but I'll try to remember the positive things George left us with.

Ram, I agree. I think his performance was great. In the Anthology, George said he "always felt sorry for Elvis because he went through it alone. He may have had his guys with him, but there was only one Elvis."
Do you have the Anthology on VHS? I love it. I hear it's supposed to come out next year on DVD.[8D]

Sorry, got way off topic on this thread.

God bless George.
Thinking of dear George and all his great music.
God bless Olivia, Dhani and all those wonderful friends who will be playing a concert for him tonight at Albert Hall.

I can imagine that he would feel shy about all the fuss on his behalf.

Well, I had a listen to Brainwashed yesterday afternoon, and this time round, the emotion did not get to me, and I did form a definite opinion - this album is brilliant! Up there with ATMP, I reckon. [8D]

I did what I thought George would have wanted me to do....I went out and did EVERYTHING...had a nice full day, and then at about midnight, I lit a bunch of candles and listened to
While my Guitar gently weeps, Here comes the sun, and Across the Universe
and just thought about him. [:I]

Across The Universe? Lyrically appropriate, although it's one of John's, not George's.
