What a great singer he was, no auto-tune crap, as was evident in the 'That's Alright' song. Cool, cool man!

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Sorry for the late finish, got delayed by a movie.

The winner, Heartbreak Hotel, Val's nom. Sharing second place, Mystery Train and Suspicious Minds, nominated by Derek and Spacepig.

I never really was a fan of Elvis, and I didn't hear anything to change my mind here, but no doubt, the dude was a legend.

Funny! Personally, I think his addiction to prescription drugs was his undoing..not unlike Wacko Jacko...


message 25: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6660 comments ye think!!! elvis was a god fearing, law abiding citizen, and was appalled by the thought of illegal drug taking. that he had the memphis mafia lean on and threaten doctors (anywhere) to write scripts for any amount or anytime of day, satisfied his role as a good american! his morals were a little skewed!

don't get me started on the pervert jackson!

Wow, I came second and I didn't even nominate anything:-)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Ooops, that movie must have been more disturbing than I thought. Mystery Train was nommed by Johnny, not Derek. I see that Derek had teased us about his youthfullness just before Johnny nommed :-)

Yep, 68 in February. I understand that 70 is the new 50 nowadays:-)

I think the deep-fried peanut butter & banana sandwiches might have had something to do with it.

"not unlike Wacko Jacko..."

I admit I don't know how prescriptions work in the USA, but I don't think there could be such a thing as a legal prescription for a general anaesthetic to be administered in the patient's home. Referring to Michel Jackson's propofol (aka milk of amnesia) as a "prescription drug" is stretching definitions a bit. After all, diacetylmorphine (heroin) is available on prescription but I don't think anyone would refer to the average smackhead as being addicted to prescription drugs.

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2940 comments Working at home today. I just had to run after the postman to hand him back a water bill for a non-existent address, having previously tried repeatedly and unsuccessfully to convince the water company that the address doesn't exist and register my annoyance that the bills keep being put in my letter box.

Anyway, I shall obviously spend the rest of the day singing to myself...

Return to sender: address unknown.
No such number; no such zone.

Ach-Yi-Vie! Yuech! He was rather fond of his fried foods..especially ye olde burgers too!

"Referring to Michel Jackson's propofol (aka milk of 'amnesia')"

Interesting! I wonder if took that, just to forget about the hideous mess he made of his face! :)
