Longer doesn't always equal better! Elvis always left the crowd wanting more, more more!!!!! Something about what I just said, reminds me of a Billy Idol song? :smt017 :smt020 8)

Elvis didn't move on August 17th and it was impossible to hear him sing. The show was just dead... :mrgreen:

Another very disrespectful comment in this "wonderful" forum.

I know Elvis was a star we all see different sides to, and he's probably so far detached from anyone of us, there's no real 'connection'. However, having seen Elvis in person so many times, watching his films, and listening constantly to his music, I felt closer to him than many friends I have had over the years. I got to see him up close, shake his hand, and marvel at his musical gifts. He was someone I was always happy to see (even though he didn't look as good as he could -- or did), however, the same comment can be said of a number of my extended family as the years go by, too.

To remark on the passing of anyone in the above matter is disgraceful. I am still saddened to think about all the concerts and music I could have witnessed and heard since that terrible news broke. What would Lisa think?

I think a more appropriate thread is what concert had the most JD divebombs?

Check out the release, "'Having fun with J.D. on Stage", he does no less than 52 dive bombs.

You will love it.
