here's an uncanny coincidence... my Nan was a bit too overweight and passed away sat on the toilet...????
.. but she was 80...

..which is as good a place as any if the first thing your body does when you die is evacuate the bowels..


hence the phrase.. "I'm dieing for a good shit.."



Apart from that..

Elvis was and is one of the greatest ever singers and the Sun to early RCA records are still fantastic...!!! 😎

Bill Haley indeed was a couple or three years ahead of Elvis. His sole genre (at least hitwise) was Rock-a-Billy cross-over from R&B. And he twice hit with the teen anthem of the 1950s, Rock Around The Clock (also used for awhile as the theme to Happy Days tv show.) Elvis, on the other hand was the was a complete package...rock, ballads, gospel with hits in each of those musics.

I hope people buy music, by our absent idols, not just to topple the X Factor cheese factory.I seem to remember there has always been a place for these undertakings though.Remember "Opportunity Knocks" and "New Faces?".Didn't they give us Lena Zaveroni and Dana and, the never to be forgotten; "Gherkin Song".I would buy Elvis all year round.I do believe he needs the money.

Not unless unrecorded material miraculously appears as has done with other artists after their demise. His music had an impact on popular music but I can't imagine today's young people or people who were in their teens from the 70's onwards buying it. It would probably sell well around Christmas time in the UK though. On second thoughts it might prevent an X-Factor star from taking the Christmas number 1 spot! Please buy Elvis this Christmas!

When Elvis Presley died his colon was so inflammed and impacted that he truly could not shit. The coroner's report said his colon weighed close to fourty pounds. That is what killed him. He died on the toilet straining to void his backed up bowels.

Elvis died. His music and legacy lives on, but he biologically died. Don't you "Elvis-gurus" or "Hard-core-devoted-fans" watch those documentaries? They placed his dead body in a coffin and buried it. His music and legacy lives on. I don't know why people say he's still walking the Earth. Not a bad performer. Actually, experts have said that if it hadn't been for thr racism in the 1950's, Chuck Berry may have been named the King of Rock 'n' Roll. Also, Jerry Lee Lewis was surpassing Elvis when Jerry was in his prime, but that scandal killed his career, and Elvis was back on top again. Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash toured with him in the early days and outstaged him. Elvis wouldn't play another show with Carl, because they drove him off the stage screaming for Carl once. Elvis is cool, but he wasn't really the top performer, as everyone claims. He did a lot, there's no question to that, but he can be over-rated quite easily.

Elvis is no longer interested in performing. He lives, very quietly, on a tree lined street in Oxford. These days he prefers to be known as Roger.

Roy Orbison was a better singer than Elvis. Elvis said so.

Unfortunately, Roy died too soon too.

But Elvis lives on in songs like this one.

I think having Peter Kay on board makes the difference to be honest as the song is one of the "cheesiest" cabaret songs of all time and in the repertoire of every 3rd rate compere in the land.If they made a video of the Elvis single with Ricky Gervais doing his David Brent dance that would top the charts for a year.But would it make the song any better?

Just read an interview with Dylan in which he states "Elvis recorded one of my songs and that's the one I treasure most".After doing a bit of research I found that Elvis actually recorded a few Dylan songs but the one he is referring to, I believe, is "Tomorrow is a Long Time" which Elvis recorded in 1966. After listening to the song I was very impressed with the way Elvis sang the track and I can see why Dylan likes it so much but I think Hendrixs' "All Along The Watchtower" takes some beating.

I love about 4 or 5 of his albums -The Sun Sessions is a classic and the best debut of all time.Elvis is Back has the smouldering "Fever" and some of the best white blues singing and playing of all time.From Elvis In Memphis is the birth of "blue eyed soul" and the best album of its time.Elvis Country paved the way for Gram Parsons etc. and is one of the best country rock albums of all time.Elvis Presley Boulevard is an outpouring of angst on a par with John Lennons Plastic Ono Band album and Jeff Buckleys best work.His first 2 RCA albums are pretty good period pieces and very influential and his gospel albums are highly polished labours of love.I also can be persuaded that GI Blues and the latin tinged Fun In Acapulco are worthwhile efforts. But cannot find a good word for Girl Happy and Easy Come Easy Go soundtracks.
