really interesting topic .
in a previous topic , i've told about all those bands who just sell their new album by their name . they might be reach the billboard top 5 and go down at the same speed . i don't talk about the "new" singers or bands who can stay much much longer at the top of the billboard , i'm talking about the "legends" of Rock .
they sell records but not millions and millions and millions but you can bet their so usual world tour will be sold out from the first date to the last ! AC/DC, Motorhead, KISS, iron maiden, deep purple, rolling stones etc.....
RCA and the colonel have acted the same way ...they did not try to change the menu ! they did not understand when and how push to reach the top . The concerts tours were sold out , so what's the matter !!
The matter is in the fact than an artist need to play on stage AND be creative ; i really think Elvis was fed up with this same and same and same routine and he lost any interest for recordings sessions . Elvis was in really bad compagny , they use their toys to gain their money forgotting their puppet was a man
