Elvis ha avuto tutto quello che una r'n'r star potesse desiderare:look simpatia,grandi musicisti ,e la sua voce e il suo strumming sulla chitarra naturalmente senza dimenticare gli altri grandi artisti del periodo che,come giustamente hai detto sono stati meno fortunati di lui mancando precocemente.Thank you Elvis!

Corporal Presley to a certain Miss Pris: "Hey, little sister, are you lonesome tonight? I'm just a soldier boy, but I'm coming home with something for everybody, and I want you with me. I'm stuck on you. Please reconsider, baby, and make me know it. The thrill of your love on such a night... in your arms, anything that's part of you, it feels so right. Darlin', it's now or never. Surrender..."

Hmmm, do I detect a pattern here?
