Elvis was one of a kind. There never has been and never will be anyone quite like him no matter what anyone might say. He was something special. The loss we feel, still to this day, is unexplainable. This post is dedicated to his life, the wonderful music he made, quotes from those who knew him well, from those who admired him and those he inspired to become great musicians. If you love Elvis, you will certainly love this!

The King 
"Tonight, I would like to pay tribute to the greatest entertainer of all time, Mr. Elvis Presley. Elvis was Las Vegas. And if it wasn’t for him, so many performers like myself would not have the chance to do what we do in this town. He really was the king."

"He had total love in his eyes when he performed. He was the total androgenous beauty. I would practice Elvis in front of the mirror when I was twelve or thirteen years old."

"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."

"That’s my idol, Elvis Presley. If you went to my house, you’d see pictures all over of Elvis. He’s just the greatest entertainer that ever lived. And I think it’s because he had such presence. When Elvis walked into a room, Elvis Presley was in the f***ing room. I don’t give a f*** who was in the room with him, Bogart, Marilyn Monroe."

"He was the firstest with the mostest."

"You have no idea how great he is, really you don’t. You have no comprehension - it’s absolutely impossible. I can’t tell you why he’s so great, but he is. He’s sensational."

"A Presley picture is the only sure thing in Hollywood."

"This boy had everything. He had the looks, the moves, the manager, and the talent. And he didn't look like Mr. Ed like a lot of the rest of us did. In the way he looked, way he talked, way he acted… he really was different."

"If life was fair, Elvis would be alive and all the impersonators would be dead."

"Before Elvis, there was nothing."

"There have been a lot of tough guys. There have been pretenders. And there have been contenders. But there is only one king."

"Elvis was the king. No doubt about it. People like myself, Mick Jagger and all the others only followed in his footsteps."

...Share your thoughts and feelings about our lost but never forgotten, Elvis Aaron Presley...
