To Rick: I could not have stated it better. I happened to agree with everything you just finished stating. But keep in mind Rick, that Elvis predates everything. The RIAA and the Grammys came years after Elvis single handedly revolutionized the world of music. And yet, in all fairness, all the reliable and respected musical pundits and historians such as Joel Whitburn rank Elvis as the greatest recording artist of all time. This is essential food for thought: Peace out my good buddy.

And I think it's really great that Princes William and Harry of England are in Memphis and toured Graceland while in town for a friend's wedding.Elvis continues to be quite popular in England and rest of the U.K,as well as the rest of the world also,quite an accomplishment for a former Crown Electric Co. truck driver from Tupelo,Missisipi,peace out

Oh well found out I was wrong! It was orginal photo! Seen the proof myself ! It was a rare photo I'd never seen . Elvis is a more detail gathering hobby where as fans like me have been seeing hearing learning more about him as time goes by. Listeng watching learning since I was very young maybe 4 years old -1965.I liked Rock and roll ,top 40,blues,country,motown,hard rock* great time growing up in the 60's and 70's. There are suppose to be a few different movies about Elvis coming out sometime.

All I've tried to do with my comments is to try to debunk the false myths about Elvis perpetuated by the Liberal media hacks.NO.1,that the other so called 50's rock legends were EQUALLY popular and important as Elvis,NOT TRUE.Rock and Roll was a fad that was beginning to fade in late 1955,Elvis and Elvis ALONE catapulted Rock to great success and prominence,the Buddy Hollys,the Eddie Cochrans,the Everly Brothers,the Gene Vincents,the Roy Orbisons and many others emerged in Elvis's wake.NO.2.That the soundtrack period was a great failure,NOT TRUE.with 9 long playing soundtrack albums set to be certified gold this year,almost ALL of the soundtracks will have gold or platinum certification,a very successful period from a commercial standpoint,which also underscores the great loyalty of his fans as well.NO.3.that Elvis was nothing more than a lazy artist in the `70's,NOT TRUE.Elvis recorded many terrific songs in the `70's,from `Promised Land' to `Burning Love ' to `T-R-O-U-B-L-E' to great live performances of `Polk Salad Annie' and `Unchained Melody' and many others,a masterful period,in my opinion.and NO.4.that The Beatles were bigger than Elvis,NOT TRUE.Elvis enjoyed more OVERALL success on the charts than they did,Elvis had the most hit singles and albums,and Elvis's success was not only on the pop charts,but on other charts as well[Country,Rn'B,Soul,and others],and in record sales and certified discs,it's not even a contest,Elvis is the winner,hands down,the media in this country is full of you know what,peace out.

why would he go to prison you idiots. When he was innocent
Nothing ever happened its all been invented.its a big fat lie.to get a piece of Michael's fortune.

Michael had a beautiful heart. And no matter
What he went through he always loved everyone
And saw the good in people.and he was beautiful
Charming gentle and loving and a very sweet person. Many people who dont know Michael
Jackson as well as his fans do they dont give him
The credit he deserves.MJ was the best .I will support him and be there for him always.the person I trust is Michael.get back to the topix about the music give him a break.its not my fault
Because elvis sucks.Elvis was so overrated.he mimes and sings other peoples songs except
The fact Michael was the greatest man that ever lived he was the best.and the greatest entertainer of all time.and so hot and sexy all the way through

Michael Jackson he is the ultimate artist no Elvis
Or any other artist could come near him.he offered the world so much that no one can beat.Michael
Was once in a lifetime and was blessed.if any other
Artist ever imagine to be compared with Michael
Jackson he is the biggest fool Michael's the real
And only king.hes prince king and Icon who changed the world of music (all by himself)
He also changed the world of dance forever
(All by himself) and when he is on stage not even
All the artists on the planet could compete with
Him,his vocal range and strengh have never been
Matched and they never will he was so humble and down to earth with a wonderful sense of humor
He is the biggest superstar on the planet.he helped
Create the moves and voice that Inspired a new
Generation of artist his voice was incredibly powerful and was always filled with true emotion
The world followed him.and people still copy him
To this day.he was just too perfect.Michael Jackson the true king of pop rock soul hip hop
And the only one that will ever rule the music world

Michael Jackson was the King of Floons. He was full of shuck and jive. He lusted after pre-teen boys and was a freak. Far from perfect and the only ones that followed him were floons and geeks

All of you know of my great respect for The Recording Industry Association of America[yeah,right],or the R.I.A.A,here's some examples of what I think the R.I.A.A should REALLY stand for.Ridiculously Inaccurate Accounting Always,Retarded Imbeciles And Assholes,Revellers In Anal Antics and my personal favorite,Registrants In Alcoholics Anonymous,because with the absurdly inaccurate sales figures for Elvis they've been touting for decades,these bozos have to be juiced to the gills while doing their `accounting',and in this case I use the word `accounting' VERY loosely,peace out.
