This is from an interview with Glen Glenn, in Elvis-Australia website:

Q : What do you think it is about Elvis, a quarter of a century after his passing, that he's bigger than ever?

A : Well, my thoughts is, Elvis Presley is the most famous human being that has ever lived, other than Jesus. And, he is. Presidents, they forget about presidents after a certain length of time, or kings and stuff. Everybody knows about Elvis. And, I play all other the country, Rockabilly, I've played every country. And, every where you go, you can't get away from Elvis face. When you're in London, you're walking down the street shopping or going somewhere, you see a big picture of Elvis. You can not leave Elvis Presley, he's everywhere. You go to countries that don't even know who our president is, they don't know, but they know who Elvis Presley is. Well, and, also, you know, Graceland has been visited more than any grave there is, I think, or house other than the White House. And, I opened for Bob Dylan and Dylan even loves Elvis, you know. Everybody loves Elvis.

Yes, indeed he is everywhere! I guess he never even realy left.

Somethimes it does make me a bit sad, that the last stage of his life, or the rumors and lies seem to be more out there then what he truely was about. I guess that is why alot of younger people, when about Elvis, think of this drug abusing fat guy in a jump suit. Sorry for the choise of words...

I'm glad there is WR,E and other good sources.
When I first started reading about Elvis I got so confused. I couldn't believe some of the stories.
But it's alright, I guess people believe what they choose to believe anyway.

Love, Raina

I feel what you say as true... Must probably we would looooove to share the beauty of Life as we feel it, with so much more people, as many others are wishing too. When we meet, the communion produced is fullfilling.

Other kind of meetings, based on ugliness, must leave behind a great emptiness...

It is too bad that people first seem to remember the bad or what makes news.

Elvis was so much more than any of this but, unfortunately, not too many people seem to be aware of this.

Wish people could see him through our eyes.

Hi, there is an excerpt for Sonny West's book on the Ultimate Elvis site- if he continues to think and has told his story in the way he is speaking in this excerpt then I have hope for Sonny. And perhaps his book will be a good one this time...he regrets how the first one turned out and how little it did for the good of Elvis. He is telling how much he loved him, etc:...that he was his world...etc: and so on. However, that does remain to be seen. It is easy to do better after one has failed and learned from it. I wish him well if this is the case. wjh

Thanks for posting the interview excerpt & link, Amanda. I enjoyed reading the whole interview. Here is another excerpt which stood out in my mind:

Quote:
Elvis was such a nice guy. For me being a nobody in those days, a young little rockabilly that nobody in the world knew, Elvis treated me good. And I've had other entertainers that wasn't near like Elvis that didn't treat you, but Elvis treated you just like a normal person.
