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.

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'!
A few days before Christmas one year, Elvis was in the store buying guns for some of his friends as gifts. There was a customer off to the side looking at a display case that held nothing but expensive Browning over-under shotguns. Presley went up to the gentleman and commented on how nice the guns were.
The man agreed, but said they were way out of his price range, since they were all probably in the thousand dollar plus area. Elvis asked the guy which one he would buy if he was purchasing, and the fellow said probably the Diana grade with the gold inlay.
Elvis then went back to the counter where Jerry Knight was, and as he left said to Jerry, "When that guy gets ready to leave, take that Diana grade shotgun out and put it on the counter and give it to him.
Tell him Elvis said Merry Christmas. Not only did Elvis give teens their own music with which to identify, he proved that much of the disposable income of this generation would be spent on music, fashion, and media of its own choosing and thus turning that generation into a high-pro! He started drawing on my front all the way down to my navel, doodling as I spoke to him, in front of hundreds at his dressing room after his August opening show at the International Hotel in Las Vegas.
Incredible sensation, he used a biro!!! That night back at my hotel, alone, I undressed and there they were, the doodlings. I did not wash until they wore off Shirley Basseyas told to talk host Graham Norton.
As Jack Wilshere completed his first 90 minutes in the Premier League for Arsenal in over three years, and was arguably their best player in the draw at West Ham's London Arena on Wednesday evening, "A Little Less Conversation", the song by Elvis Presley, was the tune that played the players off the pitch, the lyric urging for "a little more spark" a fair assessment of the game. But it is the line about the need for "a little less conversation, a little more action" that best sums up his situation at Arsenal He had a musically textured rhythmic voice that had emotional intelligence; concentrate on his voice: Eileen Battersbyliterary correspondent, citing the reasons for her being hooked on Elvis after "discovering" him inadvertently as she changed the dial looking for her favorite classical music radio station, as published in the "Irish Times" in August of He embodies the deity, the absolute power, the sunset, the snowy peaks and the abyss.
To ask one of them to have what the other has doesn't look to be a proof of social intelligence but one of galloping dissatisfaction of a country that doesn't conform with having two of the three best footballers in history in less than 40 years.

The then sitting Pope's interest, expressed some 30 years after Presley's death, may lie in the fact that he was stationed, as a young professor within the German priesthood at a town not too far from Presley's barracks during his 18 month stay in Germany with the US Army.

Tony Bennettreferring to singer, songwriter, and actress Lady Gaga in an article on Billboard published on August 17, and during an interview with the Guardian, on 17 October, I remember the first time in '56, I saw Elvis.

He was the first rock 'n roll artist I loved. In my life, I started with him, but as I got into music, Elvis and the Rolling Stones led me to blues. Bill Bentley ,American music industry executive in an interview with Salon, published on May 25, The reason I chose Elvis Presley' songs as the teaser for this article is to trigger some autobiographical memories for adults who were adolescents when his music topped the charts, which he dominated throughout the s. Hopefully, these songs will inspire older adults, baby boomers, and people of all ages to get up from your chair and dance Appropriation, then, has something to do with intent.
Elvis was just being Elvis. It makes clear that he was, first, and foremost, a committed artist, utterly dedicated to music and its ability to move people. Robby Berman, as published on the Big Think 's April 19, edition, in an article entitled "Was Elvis Presley a cultural appropiator of black music? Fernest Acernaux was not playing zydeco on that accordion, it was rhythm and blues. Elvis is the greatest cultural force in the twentieth century.

We did not have the airwaves he had, but he delivered what he obtained brilliantly. Let me conclude by saying that I realized during those early years that Elvis and I were creating a new sound. Chuck Berry as published in http: Eventually, everybody has to die, except Elvis.

I take my cue more and more from good pop singers. The other day I was looking at an early concert of Elvis Presley. One of his sons was a huge Elvis admirer, giving him a precious garment with golden applications, a waterpipe and a tea set with the royal crest on it, as a thank you gesture for his having left the Grunwald Hotel so that his father and his entire entourage could make total use of it.
Soon after posing with the garment for the King's son at his newly rented house on 14 Goethestrasse, his friend and fellow GI Charlie Hodge had a zany idea: This was finally done on Februaryas he took a cab to the "Mainzer Karneval", a big public party, staying there for 3 days in the nearby town of Mainz which was not far from Bad Nauheim. And nobody noticed the by then Sgt Elvis Presley, in spite of him being accompanied by Hodge, plus two bodyguards all dressed as sailors as well as by a mysterious girl from Bad Nauheim, who did the translations.
Elvis joined the whole programme, the clubs, the pubs, the bars, parades but stayed sober. The others did not, LOL. So I said "Why don't we turn out all the lights so we don't see this vast empty looking studio the size of a football field and make it as intimate as we can?
And then, Elvis started to sing. Next thing I know he's curled on the floor in almost a fetal position singing with a microphone next to his mouth. The hair on my arms were standing up.
And that's the take that we wound up using on the soundtrack album. I did not use it in the TV show because I'm a total believer that if you're doing television I don't want anyone lip-synching. I want the real thing. And to be completely honest, as great as the sit-down shows are, had I been able to get cameras and tape him there, it would have been even greater. I never put anybody I worked with on a pedestal, yet the first time I saw him, I was awed, first of all, by the way he looked.
If he was not famous, you would still stop and stare. Elvis was perfect from every angle. It was like a god walking in towards me His privileged access let him show Muhammad Ali away from the ring: But who do you think was chosen?
Einstein, whose books I saw being burned in Cilla would record and perform Beatles numbers throughout her career, but in the 60s and up to the mids, she did more than most.
Her renditions of "Yesterday","For No One""Across The Universe" and others became big favourites with radio DJs, not to mention with The Beatles, who always liked the way she interpreted their material.
Previous praise from Randy Newman, for her take on one of his songs had been sweet music to her ears. She had, however and this to her dying day, something to be immensely proud of — Elvis Presley had her "You're my world" on his famous jukebox at Graceland. I was in a friend's studio when a buddy of his called and told him.
Do you want me to tell you now or later? When the session was over he told me and I thought he was joking and it didn't hit me until I lay down to sleep. The one other time that I experienced that was when my mother and my son died. It wasn't because he wouldn't he doing any more of my songs. It was like a piece of the whole business. I mean some people you just figure are never going to die. Inside, they'll always live. When they're gone, a certain piece goes and you just can't believe it.
Reaction of Otis Blackwellthe African-American songwriter, singer, and pianist, whose work significantly influenced rock and roll, to the death of Elvis Presley He would probably be considered a baritone, but he could reach notes that most baritone singers could not.
Much of his abilities emanated from a very intense desire to execute a song as he wanted to do it, which meant that he really sang higher than he would normally be able to.

Well, I ask you. But I think we can be grateful to Elvis for his grin, his pelvis, his leap, and for the punky, biracial, engaging, ineluctably erotic and still mysterious tenor of his voice.

I think he had an amazing charisma, was so passionate about what he did, and the people could feel it. James Blunt in a filmed interview I want to do an Elvis Presley song Following the sudden disappearance of founder Julius Little, the 3rd Street Saints fell apart.
In its place, three new gangs divide up Stilwater: Johnny Gat, Julius's former chief lieutenant, is charged with counts of murder and faces the death penalty.
His girlfriend Aisha, despite having been forced to fake her death in the previous game, has become a record producer in her own right. After an earthquake leveled Stilwater, the Ultor Corporation bought up most of the land and converted it into a massive financial district run as their own personal fiefdom. The other remaining Saints have abandoned the gang; Dexter Jackson is now a security consultant for Ultor, and Troy Bradshaw, who was responsible for Julius's downfall, has been named the new Chief of Police.
Plot[ edit ] After the explosion on Alderman Richard Hughes' yacht, the player fell into a coma and was taken to Stilwater's maximum security prison to undergo extensive plastic surgery.
Five years later, Carlos Mendoza, the brother of a former Saint, infiltrates the infirmary and helps the player escape. After arriving at the city, the player is informed by Carlos about the demise of the 3rd Street Saints; Julius went missing, Troy Bradshaw became the Chief of Police, and many Saints members were either killed or jailed.
After arriving at a bar, the player discovers that Johnny Gat is on trial for murders and looks set for death row. The player breaks into the courtroom and rescues Johnny, taking him to Aisha's house, where they discuss on how to revive the Saints. After learning that the church was turned into a tourist trap, the player and Johnny take over an underground mission and establish as their new headquarters, and soon recruit high-ranking lieutenants for the Saints in Carlos, Pierce Washington and Shaundi.
The player then officially becomes the new leader of the Saints and is then referred to as "the Boss" by the rest of the gang. Maero, the leader of the Brotherhood, calls a meeting with Carlos and the Boss. The Brotherhood and The Saints's meeting is interrupted by cops. After escaping the police, they go back to The Brotherhood's headquarters. Insulted, the Saints refuse and declare war on the Brotherhood.
With the help of Donnie, a former Westside Rollerz member who now works as Maero's head mechanic, the Boss blows up several of the Brotherhood's prize trucks and laces Maero's private supply of tattoo ink with toxic waste, leaving him with severe facial burns. As revenge, the Brotherhood kidnaps Carlos and drags him through the streets tied to a moving vehicle. With his injuries too severe for medical treatment, Carlos begs for the Boss to put him out of his misery, which the Boss sadly does so by shooting Carlos in the head while holding his hand.
Furious at Maero for causing Carlos's death, the Saints abduct his girlfriend Jessica at a bank and lock her in the trunk of a car which is then destroyed by Maero during a Brotherhood-sponsored demolition derby, crushing her to death. However, The Boss blows up the prison buses and prison boats before they reach their destination.
Vogel orders his company's security forces to confiscate a Brotherhood weapons shipment as "compensation", but the Saints steal it first. Using the stolen weapons, the gang lays waste to the Brotherhood's dockside headquarters. The Boss then kills them before confronting the dying Maero. Before Maero can finish his last words, the Boss shoots him in the head, killing him and putting an end to the Brotherhood.
Working alongside Shaundi, the Boss moves to take down The Sons Of Samedi by killing their dealers and destroying their drug farms and labs. DJ Veteran Child, Shaundi's ex-boyfriend and a Sons Of Samedi lieutenant, has her kidnapped and brought to his club, where the Boss confronts and kills him. The General, the founder of The Sons of Samedi, arranges for the Boss to be drugged while his men assault the Saints at their base.
Despite being severely intoxicated, the Boss rallies the Saints to fight off the attackers. Sunshine, the creator of the gang's product, is killed by the Boss whilst attempting to defend his manufacturing plant from a Saints raid. Unable to locate the General, Shaundi and the Boss pose as repair workers and hack the police station's street surveillance cameras to find him.
Finally, the Saints organize an ambush of the General's motorcade, eventually tracking down and killing the General in the Stilwater Mall.
To get the Ronin's attention, Pierce, Gat, and the Boss rob their most profitable casino. Fearing disgrace, their leader, Shogo Akuji, orders his enforcer Jyunichi to use Aisha to lure Gat into a trap, which results in Aisha being decapitated and Gat getting severely wounded after losing a katana duel with Jyunichi.
After killing Jyunichi in a fight at a restaurant and saving Johnny from Ronin hitmen trying to kill him at the hospital, the Boss receives the location of the Ronin's headquarters from Vogel, angered by Shogo's father, Kazuo, cutting all business ties with Ultor. As a last-ditch effort, Shogo leads a group of Ronin to kill Gat at Aisha's funeral. However, Gat and the Boss kill Shogo's men and bury him alive in a coffin as revenge for Aisha's murder.
Kazuo, after surviving an attempt on his life at Wardill Airport, orders a direct attack on The Saints, but fails. Wong, an old ally of the Boss, is subjected to another attack at his heritage festival in a bid to lure The Saints out. Wong, the Boss beats Kazuo in a sword fight and leaves him to die on a burning boat. Meanwhile, an increasingly power-hungry Vogel plans to destroy the Saints so he can expand Ultor's control over all of Stilwater.
When an initial effort to kill The Saints' leadership is foiled by The Boss, the Saints respond by destroying a high-security Ultor lab. The company's board of directors try to rein in Vogel, so he sends their locations to the Boss, which he uses to kill them.
Appointing himself chairman, Vogel hosts a press conference to denounce the Saints. Gat and The Boss open fire on the conference, forcing Vogel to retreat into his office. Destroying the building's defenses, the Boss enters and confronts Vogel. Vogel attempts to fool the Boss by claiming the board of directors were behind the attacks, and tries to make a truce with the Boss by saying that they could unite their resources to control the city, but before Vogel manages to finish his sentence, the Boss shoots him in the mouth, sending Vogel flying off the window to his death in the streets below.
After conquering Stilwater, the Boss has the option of visiting Stilwater Police Headquarters and listening to 3 wiretap conversations recorded under Bradshaw's authority. According to the recordings, Julius was responsible for planting the bomb on Alderman Hughes' yacht that nearly killed the Boss, believing that doing so would allow him to disband the Saints and retire.
