Quit derailing topics with your nonsense. I've no doubt the Pickett anecdote is true, but it is a second-hand, anonymous source, and cannot be considered as coming from Elvis Presley. You must be very slow, as I've detailed this at least three times to date.

Move on, and thanks for popping in.

This debut by the Beach Boys was taped on Thursday, December 17, 1964, and aired on Wednesday, December 23, 1964, as part of the "Shindig!" Christmas Special. It must have been Mike Love's idea to cover the tune. What a genius.

They did better that night, opening with their amazing current single, "Dance, Dance, Dance":

I have no idea whether brother Bobby said it or not, or whether the story is true or not, but I'll say that one cannot prove someone didn't say something. It can only be proven that they did.

Isn't that what they say is proving a negative?

For the last time, the point, which for some of our more opaque thinkers is impossible to grasp, is not that Pickett's anecdote is being doubted, but that the so-called criticism of his #1 hit derives from an anonymous girl who claims to have heard Elvis giving his assessment.

So, to ascribe this critique as a direct quote from Elvis Presley is wrong, period.

It's actually not that complicated. ;-)

Thank you.

Not nearly as much as you love this topic, with 54 visits, you more than double the number visits by the guy who created it:

Kinda pathetic, but there it is. ;-)

Lordy. I knew I should've simply sat back and watched the silly bickering. This "issue" is not complicated for me a-tall. There has yet to be an issue on this board which was above me. :D

You were asked to prove Elvis did not say something. My main point was that one cannot prove someone did not say something. You can only prove that someone did. That was the point of my post, and I was in your camp by saying it.

Ah, well...........

Carry on, folks. I'll spectate the rest of it. Or not.
