    I love Elvis. I more of a pre-military fan though. I love his stuff from 1954-1958. Great stuff. I also enjoy some of his films. Again though, mostly his pre-military films like Love Me Tender and Jailhouse Rock.

    Those movies were AMAZING!!! I loved them and Blue Hawaii and GI Blues and sooo many more. He was really a much better actor than people thought.

    it's really too bad that he didn't take better care of himself...back in the 60s, not much attn. was given to personal health, it's really a shame. if he had been like madonna, how she keeps in shape and such, i think he'd still be alive today....

    I think he was just....sad. He kinda more or less gave up towards the end. I think its too bad he didnt have anyone around him at the time that cared enough to kinda lay down the law to him.
    I mean they kept saying 'elvis wasnt the kinda person you could say go get urself help or that u could give help too...' but id have done it regardless of how he wouldve reacted.

    A treat for all the Elvis fans: http://youtube.com/watch?v=mc5sDt4ppnE&feature=related

    You could say that was the first music video ever.

    well, i know after gladys died, he was devastated, but also @ that time, physical fitness and nutrition weren't really big in hollywood like it is today...really sad...cuz i think if he had taken better care of himself or just got some professional help regarding his addictions, i think he'd still be here....
