Pathetic!!! To post the F**K Berry logo on the end is not clever. It brings the STAR compilers down to the same level they are being angry about. There are still many young Elvis fans who watch these nice alternatives,so having a swearing logo at the start is childish. Elvis would not have approved of this, disrespect to Chuck Berry included. Bad move STAR. :cry:

I thought the phrase was very appropriate. How often did Elvis use the word in the recording studios? No matter what, you just can't please everyone all the time. I'm sure the folks behind STAR will continue expressing themselves however they want. It sure isn't going to effect many customers lol

I don't think it is disrespecting Chuck Berry. It actually means that Elvis' version is as good or better than Chuck Berry's version. Which I don't agree with because this is one of Elvis's worst performance of Johnny B Goode. If it was the 1969 version then I would agree!

Really? A nice classy touch? No. It actually reveals them to be misinformed morons. If they really wanted to "stick it to Warner" they'd have put "F*** Warner !!" on it. Better yet, they might realise the bootleg itself is "sticking it to Warner" and not put childish statements across Elvis Presley footage.

Chuck Berry is a living musical legend so "F*** STAR !!" for their dishonourable conduct.

Look, we don't know any details around negotiations that took place so either F berry or F warner is justified.

If you think Chuck Berry is sitting around, personally handling approvals for each and every use of one of his songs that's rather naive. Warner was responsible for the fail with On Tour.

Again, nobody knows anything around this. At least not on this forum.

The new Star Elvis On Tour DVD is very disappointing, It was supposed to be an alternate version? Its got a tonne of audience footage in it!! How is this alternate to the real On Tour?? Great audience footage it is but its not apprpriate to mix it with proper professional footage.

Also why do they play around with the footage like adding in bits of slow motion?? Example: In Never Been To Spain when Elvis sings ".... you cant refuse it" Just after this Elvis makes a hand/arm movement to coincide with the song but Star take away from this by putting in slow motion!!

Burning Love and other songs are just slotted in and the whole thing doesnt flow at all. Its a rush job or else Star has lost it.

Don't worry about it. Berry has disrespected Elvis before.

In reality they aren't doing anything constructive by adding the message. The whole concept was to present it as a new vision of the film. It was totally not needed and adds nothing to the experience. What it did was create marketing for the item.

Truth be told this is a low run bootleg of material (sound & video) owned by someone else. All the images and audio actually belong as property to many different individuals who will receive no compensation for this item. It is stealing in the same aspect as if you worked at your own job all day and someone else reaped the paycheck.

maybe they should have waited ti the end of the credits, then edited the message to say "F everyone involved with this film" In the end they are stealing from all entities involved with the film.

They may even hear from the same people who control the Berry song with a legal note about the use of the song...much like Warner did -if enough attention comes to this product.

Just my opinion though.

Totally agree with this post. It's only about 1hour 10 mins long, so how can it be an 'alternate' movie?! They've completely removed the dialogue aspect of the film also and included poor quality audio and home movie footage from 1971!! Elvis did not sing "That's alright" during the "On tour" period. That's the last "Star" thing I get free copies of! :smt006

Did anyone really expect anything else from Star? It's always a lot of hype and never deliver.
And where's the 45 seconds of It's Over? What I can't believe is that there are actually people who spend real money on any of their products. If you really Have to have something from Star turn on Grabit.
