Long live the King.
P.S. I laugh at the fools who "care" for a man they never knew. I believe in empathy..but even that can only go so far.
Elvis never "fell", because he was a human being with faults like all of us. Some of the know it alls on this board would have probably croaked years earlier under the same circumstances.

Did I say "ram it down people's throats"? There is a difference between simply making the stuff available....and going around taking in costumes, only showing "good" pictures...etc.
Hell if they don't want to "ram it down..." just do as they have done. Release the product, with no promotion. Or hell promote it anyway. The damage is a thing of the past. The jokes have already been told. I expect they will be told again. Who cares???
I have made a comparison with Elvis and Godzilla before, and it still stands. Elvis was never "hurt" because he is a dead guy. May he R.I.P. but the truth still stands. His records will continue to sell and the non-believers will likely stay that way. All couple thousand of them.
The resurrection had very little to do with EPE and more to do with Ernst and co. For bad or for good, the 50's box set was the beginning, and the COMPLETE representation of E's material in a intelligent package, helped garner the sales and present to the world the Elvis that people missed. The music did the talking. Not the niptuck that EPE or Ernst doing later with the 70's box did???!!!
When a movie or the final material exists in complete form, only then will the big picture be complete. Rest assured the fat jokes will comeback...then leave...then comeback. But the problem is that the hardcore fans that went out and bought the material will be getting on without the final piece.
This is sad. Elvis fans like that deserve better.
You see there are people that only enjoy greatest hits and will hunt and peck over only the "critical" successes, and there are others that understand the artist on a much deeper basis. I consider myself the latter. The only thing that stops me from more. TIME.
