Johnny Cash remembers Elvis:

Elvis and I talked about music, but I never spoke to him about Sun Records or any other connection into the music business. I wanted to make it on my own devices, and that's how I set about doing it.

Elvis certainly took a lot of abuse from that crowd. He had his problems with gossip, too, and rumor and lies. He was very sensitive, easily hurt by the stories people told about him being on dope and so on. I myself couldn't understand why people wanted to say that back in the '50s, because in those days he was the last person on earth who needed dope. He had such a high energy level that it seemed he never stopped - though maybe that's why they said he was on dope.

Either way, he wasn't, or at least I never saw any evidence of it. I never saw him use any kind of drug, or even alcohol; he was always clear-headed around me, and very pleasant. Elvis was such a nice guy, and so talented and charismatic - he had it all - that some people just couldn't handle it and reacted with jealousy. It's only human, I suppose, but it's sad.

Great tribute from Johnny!!!! I like especially this sentence:

That is sad. :( It actually reminds me of a line that was in his movie "Easy Come Easy Go" where the character whose name was Jo said "people always make of things that they don't understand". Sadly, I think that's what happened to Elvis. Some people didn't understand him, or what he or his music were all about so they just chose to make fun of him or belittle him. Then once he became successful doing what they didn't understand the jealousy kicked in. :( Yet, in spite of all of that, and being hurt over what some people said about him, he still rose above it all and continued to show love, compassion and understanding to his fellow man. :D "Never ceases to amaze me" as he said. :wink: :D
