Of course, not all celebrities are created equal. A home that was once owned by Cary Grant or Elizabeth Taylor, for instance, would probably hold broader appeal than one formerly inhabited by, say, Zsa Zsa Gabor. On that score, David Alhadef definitely struck gold when he discovered the new location for Casa Perfect, the L. For six years, it belonged to Elvis Presley. Mayer Rus, for Architectural Digest in an article entitled "Elvis Presley's Once-Home roars back to life as a dazzling showplace for contemporary furnishings, as published in AD's February 18, edition.
Bush was equally at ease in all settings, something that seemed so characteristic of the man I revered.Guitar: When Princes Meet (Including lyrics and chords)
While working in government relations for Shell, I sometimes hosted foreign Ambassadors visiting Houston. On the last morning the Ambassador, who was a fan of Elvis Presley, did a live television interview on what by sheer coincidence happened to be Elvis' birthday, and the station had an Elvis impersonator on the set, to do a routine.
He politely talked about the various events, then with a twinkle in his eye said: Bush and, since Professor at the Jesse H. Of course, it washe had a beautiful blonde on the back of his motorcycle.
Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaiorecalling his most memorable traffic stop, which involved a speeding motorcycle driven by a young Elvis, as published in an interview with CBS's channel 5 on August 8, He was stationed in Germany doing his service so on the occasion he would go visit Paris coinciding with my time there.
On his first visit, he took 40 dancing girls from the Lido to the Prince des Galles Hotel. On his next, he suddenly took a great shine to me but when someone told him I was trans-sexual, he stayed away.
But, if by chance we would be in the same club, he would sent me a bottle of champagne every time. He was a divine human being. April Ashleya MBE, born George Jamieson and the first male Briton to have full sex reassignment surgeryrecalling the time she met Elvis inas published in the Mirror on November 4, I found him to be an interesting person, had an entourage of good old boys, was busy with karate, breaking his hand while doing it, but he was nice and cooperative and friendly.
I really liked him. Ed Asneron the first time he met and worked with Elvis, namely during the shoot of "Kid Gallahad", inin an article published on July 16, on the Houston Chronicle. He was a hard worker, and although he lived the high life, he never forgot that he had been born into poverty.
And he was a self-made talent, perhaps the greatest entertainer of all time, born in a two-room shack in Tupelo, Miss. Greatness can be born anywhere. His father Vernon was a laborer who was often out of work, and the Presleys relied on the kindness of family and neighbors to get them through the hard times.
When Elvis was young, the Presleys lost it, and they ended up shuttling around Tupelo, often living in black neighborhoods, where Elvis famously developed an ear for black gospel and blues to supplement his love of the old-time gospel he knew from his own church. I still believe in my heart that most Southerners are still more like Elvis than President Trump.
We are most likely to pull over and help someone stranded on the roadside. Most of the people I know in my Mississippi town would give you the shirt off their backs. Most people agree that racism and white supremacy are evil.
And yet here we are. We know right from wrong, but most of us down here voted for wrong. Elvis changed the country music scene quite a bit; he almost put country music out of business. He was white, but he sang black. It wasn't socially acceptable for white kids to buy black records at the time. Did I have any sense of how big he was going to be when he first came to RCA? Oh yeah, we knew. Back in those days, if a guy got hot in one area you could spread it around the country, maybe the world.
Lots of people have asked me if Elvis could play guitar. Well, he played pretty good. And he played piano and drums. But he loved gospel music. Of course that was what made him what he was.
He was so damn versatile he could sing anything. Enter Elvis and the rock-a-billies. Part 2, interview recorded January Beyond the staggering realization of what we had found, there was a musical element that also knocked our socks off: On these tapes Glen is singing pure rock and roll and with a sense of joy, passion and wild abandon that can only have come from knowing that his idol, the avatar Elvis Presley, would be an audience of one for these recordings.
When Elvis came back from the service and he was greeted by all the publicity, the press, the photographers, reporters, and so forth, someone said to him "Well, what do you think now that you're not number one but Avalon is? Frankie Avalonas noted in whenstarsmeetstars. That was extremely immodest and foolish of me, my apologies.
I would never dare to be so presumptuous. I am only interested in the legacy my father has left behind, and I would like to work towards giving it strength and respect for as long as I live.
Indian entertainer and former politician Amitabh Bachchan 's answer to a question posed by a reporter on whether he recalled his once saying that he would like to leave a lasting legacy in the world, to be a sort of Elvis Presley, as published on the "Asian Age" on May 13, In May of I was in the middle of an Elvis Presley obsession, so I went to Graceland.
But what has stuck with me the most from the visit is a particular story about Elvis. But when he started to make more money than he could ever spend, or maybe just enough money to have every material thing he wanted, it no longer held importance to him.
So, during a party at Graceland he was inside with a guest who came from a poor background, and the other partygoers were outside on the lawn. His friend commented on how sophisticated all of the partygoers seemed. Elvis walked over to his desk, pulled a stack of money from one of the drawers, opened a window, and threw the bills out the window.
The partygoers scrambled after the bills, shoving each other, trying to grab as much money as they could. Actually, that is inexact. The voice had mixed propensities, hovering between tenor and bass and everything in between. Even a convincing falsetto lay within his range. One thing he was not, ever, was "Steve-'n-Edie", the polished, professionally accomplished Vegas artistes who once pronounced on an afternoon interview show Mr. Gorme"We don't really think of Elvis as a singer.
But he was a star. A singer is someone like Steve Lawrence rolling effortlessly and meaninglessly through a shlock-standard like "What Now, My Love? More or less like doing the scales. A star is the persona in whom one invests one's vicarious longings, a being who is constantly hazarding — and intermittently succeeding at — the impossible stretches that every soul wishes to attempt but lacks the means or the will to. It's not a matter of virtuosity.
Crudup kept his blues in a bucket; Elvis put the lid on, and cooked; bar by bar, the song comes together; first comes D. Fontana's rapped-out drum riff, then a top-to-bottom run from Bill Black's stand-up bass, then the controlled gallop of Scotty Moore's lead guitar; then, last of all, Elvis singing in that imperious velvet growl of his, "Yes, my baby left me!
Never said a word"; it is the most underestimated song in the canon; there is lightning in that bucket, and it could drive a train, any train. It literally took us into a new age. Elvis was a university. Whoever those mystics are who teach that the universe began with sound could use him as their full curriculum" Jackson Baker,i in "Memphis Magazine" July ii as published in "The Memphis Flyer", Augustedition He was fantastic.
When he danced, the people danced, the girls would actually faint because of what he was doing. Lavern Bakercommenting on her covering one of Presley's best early 60's songs, with a few changes in the lyrics, which she recorded in late as a answer to Presley's "Little Sister".
Presley's voice was remarkable in the sense that, through it, he touched people in a way only great artists can do. In factthe people he touched are as diverse as humanity itself and, because of that his popularity has transcended race, class, national boundaries, and culture. There is no simple answer about why that is so, all I can say is he had that magic. When Elvis Presley was first popular, many people said that he did not have a good voice.
Almost everyone, today, knows that he did, but more people today should see him not simply as a performer, but as an artist with a great soul. The two of them remind me of each other: Hank Ballardrhythm and blues singer and songwriter, lead vocalist of the Midnighters, as noted in the book "Jackie Wilson: Lonely Teardrops" by Tony Douglas.
It tells you everything you need to know about his mood, his game, and his grim determination to outfox the elements and annihilate his opponent. Then, inElvis happened. The influence that the softly spoken Mississippi native had on popular music - and in particular rockabilly - is incalculable. First billed as 'The Hillbilly Cat' again a nod towards black and white influencesthe boy with the seemingly rubber limbs sang both blues and country songs infused with elements of this new rockabilly movement to the bemusement of a music industry not yet aware of the significance of what they were listening to.
They didn't know it at the time, but the music establishment had just changed forever. Two years later he signed with RCA and the ensuing exposure he received on national television introduced rockabilly to its widest audience yet and, like fire to kindling, there was no stopping its spread. Other labels swooped to sign up any artists who sang even vaguely similar to Elvis and there was a bona fide musical gold rush underway and record executives and studio bigwigs fell over themselves to capitalise on this musical trend which was now sweeping the nation - ultimately playing a big part in rockabilly's eventual downfall, as more and more people tried to make money from it, thus watering down its raunchiness as they tried to make it appear to as large a market as possible, and finally taming its sound beyond recognition.
Excerpted from an article entitled "The Roots of Rockabilly: Examining the origins of a rock n' roll movement", by John Balfe, and as published in www. And I just loved him. I mean, probably the same reason everybody loved Elvis.
Cause he was electric. Genuinely did what he felt. It was coming up from inside of him, and it was coming out. Cause it was the real deal. It was the autumn ofand two tickets to an Elvis show turned up at the offices of Creem magazine, where I was then employed. It was decided that those staff members who had never had the privilege of witnessing Elvis should get the tickets, which was how me and art director Charlie Auringer ended up in nearly the front row of the biggest arena in Detroit.
Rock critic Lester Bangs ' opening sentence in Elvis' obituary, by special request from and published by the Village Voice on 20 August I mean, don't tell me about Lenny Bruce, man - Lenny Bruce said dirty words in public and obtained a kind of consensual martyrdom.
Plus which Lenny Bruce was hip, too goddam hip if you ask me, which was his undoing, whereas Elvis was not hip at all. Elvis was a goddam truck driver who worshipped his mother and would never say "shit" or "fuck" around her, and Elvis alerted America to the fact that it had a groin with imperatives that had been stifled.
Lenny Bruce demonstrated how far you could push a society as repressed as ours and how much you could get away with, but Elvis kicked "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window" out the window and replaced it with "Let's fuck. Sexual chaos reigns currently, but out of chaos may flow true understanding and harmony, and either way Elvis almost single handedly opened the floodgates. Republished in Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung pg.
George Barbel, as a follow up to a question on what was Elvis' range, as published in All Experts. Another time we played with Herman's Hermits who were very popular.
Frankly, we didn't rate them musically, but we were impressed when they told us about they having met with Elvis Presley, "Elvo" to us. And when they told Ian Anderson he sang like 'Elvo' he was very flattered and to this day the rest of the band and I always call Ian 'Elvo'!
When Princes Meet by Tom Paxton - lyrics
Jess charmed us with her beautiful voice and classy songs. Definitely a rising star. Our MC Andy also introduced a few of the regulars for floor spots, including Tony who responded to Jess telling the 'how many folk singers does it take to change a light bulb?
Nice to see Kev again with some banjo tunes and Lovely to hear Sheila sing some unaccompanied Irish traditional songs. Tony sang a version of The 'Welsh' Rover, with some Welsh words in the chorus - the gist of the song being attempting to do some sheep shearing, but being sent away castrated by the farmer who thought his intentions towards the sheep were dodgy!

Thanks to the floor singers and Andy for MC-ing. Thanks also to Dave Williams for the loan of chairs, much needed on a sell out evening.
Songs to mark Remembrance Day were in evidence in a varied evening. Richard gave us a medley of music hall songs dressed in a bowler hat and waistcoat, Kevin brought his newly acquired banjo and we were delighted to see Keith and Colin.

Amid some interesting tuning issues, Grace got her washboard out! Tickets for Jez Lowe were selling well and there are now only a few left. Good luck to Jez on 22nd April. MC was Andy who did a splendid job.
Nice to see Joss again, who made his first appearance last time and lowered the average age! The diverse "Baroque Folk" experimentation on Paxton's recordings was basically short-lived though, and he tended to think that the music was becoming too overproduced and away from the more natural acoustic roots that he loved best.
Regarding this time, he said, "the acoustic guitar has always been what I loved the most I know I didn't have that rock mentality or anything. I was still a kid from a small town in Oklahoma. And I just wanted to hear folk songs. Middle career Paxton, his wife and their two daughters lived in Holland Park, London for about four years in the early s.
