Some things Elvis disliked

There was, and never will be, no one like Elvis.

In today’s technological world we read about cloning, robots, artificial intelligence, downloading memories, holograms, etc. but Elvis (as we all are) was “Elvis” because how he grew up. Who he was exposed to. How much he loved his mother. The pains of being shy. The agony that comes from lack of monetary means as a child. His love of music. Of God.

But, this post is about some of the things that Elvis disliked so here goes.

Elvis disliked:

Steve Allen for putting him in a tuxedo and having him sing to a hound dog on national tv.

People watching him eat other than his friends, family, loved ones, etc.

Drug dealers.

Any “man” who would strike a woman.

Alcohol (but he did on occasion partake of peach brandy or a screwdriver). Alcoholism as he had seen, and heard, of how devastating it was and the violence that arose from it.


Being contractually bound, during the 1960’s, to make movies whereby he had no say over the scripts – storylines – etc. He complained, and this manifested itself in Elvis becoming “ill”, that he was singing to a chicken coop and that the songs (with exceptions of course) were ridiculous.

People who were not loyal.

Hollywood (in general and with exceptions of course).

Elvis thoughts March 2016

Elvis’ 80th birthday was about 2 months ago and Elvis week, during August, is a summer away. is always updating and should be a “go to” for Elvis fans.

I am getting (shocker) older and I feel it more and more each day. So much of the world I grew up with is…gone. We are the last generation that had a foothold in Elvis’ life onstage and off. And (sadly) each passing year those who knew Elvis the best have passed away. Alot to swallow in this one sentence.

Elvis was a pioneer.

Elvis was a son.

Elvis was a singer.

Elvis liked to play the piano.

Elvis did not read music.

Elvis went through the majority of his career recording without headphones which is commonplace today. Interesting on the rock documentary “Elvis on Tour” there is a scene when Elvis comments, in the recording session with JD Sumner and the stamps quartet, and he is wearing headphones and says “boy it’s hard to get used to this headphones” (note: I am going by memory so please excuse me if it is not verbatim).

Elvis was…Elvis.

‘Nuff said.
