Eileen Battersby, literary correspondent of, "The Irish Times", discovered Elvis Presley by accident on her car radio, her two thousand word piece on how she discovered his voice concluded with this paragraph:
" The Gospel sound, all the catchy rock and roll numbers, the ballads, the love songs, Elvis was, and is a great singer for many reasons; he had a musical, textured rhythmic voice, that emotional intelligence. Concentrate on his voice; sweet, remorseful, defiant suggestive. Unlike so many of the superstars of modern popular music, he could sing - that's why he is the King."
The sophisticated relatively young journalist is probably unaware of Elvis' dislike of "the King", title. Her article appeared last year just after the 25TH Anniversary, she had inadvertently heard Elvis on her car radio and actually LISTENED.
Any other notable converts to Elvis besides the millions of young unsung fans of recent years?
