Re: “Elvis Will Never Amount to Much

Elvis never did amount to much, he made money from second rate films and second rate songs but he never amounted to much. If dying bloated and alone all that talent wasted was amounting to something then I'm a Dutchman called Andreas Van Kuijk.

Re: “Elvis Will Never Amount to Much

Time got it wrong big Time about the King of Rock 'n' Roll but I agree that he was not consistant and threw everything he had away on crummy films and second rate songs. He was great in the 1950s and made a great name for himself but it's sad that all that talent went to complete waste and now in 2007 it's all fat Elvis's and jumpsuits that have taken over from the cutting edge music he made in the 1950s. There once was a King, but the crown turned into a mug.

Re: “Elvis Will Never Amount to Much

The Memphis Flash In The Pan had a career built not by his talent but by a crafty con man manager who ripped him off for every penny. Time was wrong at the time, but that's one six foot sausage who made it on hype, and offered mediocrity when more talented, more consistant and better singers endured long after a bloated has-been croaked on the toilet. Elvis fans have had the wool pulled over their eyes for years and that's quite sad, but it is sad being an Elvis fan.

Re: “Elvis Will Never Amount to Much

The Memphis Flash In The Pan made it purely on hype and at the hands of a con man manager who ripped him off for everything he earned. Elvis fanatics will forever be besotted with an image that endures but with a career that was build on the mediocre and marketing of such, and it's amazing the the wool has been pulled over the eyes of so many -- and we always here cries of FIX when those in the know don't rank or rate a six foot sausage. There were bigger, better and more talented singers in the 20th century, Time may have been wrong, but Elvis ushered in a new low for commercialism vs artistry.
