"Elvis was the only man from Northeast Mississippi who could shake his hips and still be loved by rednecks, cops, and hippies" — Jimmy Buffett.

it bothers me more than it should whenever people say “elvis presley had such a sad life” or “elvis presley was such a sad man”

Some people tap their feet. Some people snap their fingers. And some people just sway back and forth. I just sort of do ‘em all together I guess — Elvis Presley, August 29, 1956.


A lot of people change but actually I haven’t. I’ve never even felt a change. The only thing I’ve felt is happiness, that things have gotten better for me. That God has blessed me. — Elvis Presley, 1956.

RIP Elvis Presley, (Jan. 8, 1935 - Aug. 16, 1977)

It’s rare when an artist’s talent can touch an entire generation of people. It’s even rarer when that same influence affects several generations. Elvis made an imprint on the world of pop music unequaled by any other single performer. -Dick Clark

When I first heard Elvis’ voice, I just knew that I wasn’t going to work for anybody, and nobody was going to be my boss. He is the deity supreme of rock and roll religion as it exists in today’s form. Hearing him for the first time was like busting out of jail. I thank God for Elvis Presley. -Bob Dylan

Without Elvis, none of us could have made it. -Buddy Holly

That Elvis, man, he is all there is. There ain’t no more. Everything starts and ends with him. He wrote the book." -Bruce Springsteen

It was Elvis who really got me hooked on beat music. When I heard "Heartbreak Hotel" I thought, this is it.-Paul McCartney

Ask anyone. If it hadn’t been for Elvis, I don’t know where popular music would be. He was the one that started it all off, and he was definitely the start of it for me. -Elton John

We’ve lost the most popular man that ever walked on this planet since Christ himself was here. -Carl Perkins

If life was fair, Elvis would be alive and all the impersonators would be dead.- Johnny Carson

Rest In Peace, Elvis Presley (Jan. 8, 1935 - Aug. 16, 1977)

When I was a child, I was a dreamer. I read comic books and I was the hero of the comic book. I saw movies and I was the hero in the movie. So every dream I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times and these gentlemen over here [referring to the other Jaycees], these are the type of people who care, they’re dedicated, and they realize that it is possible that they might be building the kingdom of heaven, it’s not just too far fetched from reality. I’d like to say that I learned very early in life that ‘Without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain’t got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend - without a song.’ So I keep singing a song.

Rest In Peace, Elvis Presley (Jan. 8, 1935 - Aug. 16, 1977)

Until we meet again, may God bless you as he has blessed me.
