    I grew up with Elvis, Buddy Holly and the likes, i loved all there music, still get to hear it so I dont miss the music but as for the stars such as Elvis, on a personal note I dont think you can miss someone that is not involved directly in your life......I do miss my Mum though xxx

    I miss all great artists that have since moved on...Elvis, John Wayne, Sinatra. However, I do accept they are gone.

    Never was a big fan. I mostly remember all the histeria after he died - very similar to the Michael Jackson craziness.

    While I'm sorry that he passed away, I never was a big fan to begin with. I like some of his songs, but I'm in no way a 'fan'. Still, God rest his soul.

    I remember the day he died. I was driving a Big Rig Truck to Cali and were I was at I could only pick up AM on the radio, it was a station in Chicago when the anouncment came across the air waves that he died I was quite sad. I grew up with with Elvis's music and movies.

    Although I am foremost a fan of Frank Sinatra, he was ofa different music genre. Elvis was/is peerless as a rock and roll icon. He was/is indeed the King and, he was a better singer than his critics would admit to.

    Don't know him like that. His family should miss him.

    I still enjoy his music - and guess you could say I miss him. He was just another of many who had an addiction that led to an early death. I can see where that is so easy to happen in a profession like his. The long hours - take something to help you sleep, then take something to help you wake up - it becomes a vicious cycle - and then it doesn't help matters that the managers just do whatever it takes to keep them going -- not really concerned about their health. His passing away, at what to me was a very young age, was sad.

    there was plenty more that he had left in the tank and I believe if he would have lived he would have been better handled in the coming years....especially the 80's

    Elvis never hurt anybody, he made some horrible movies, but, so what? When he was drafted he went. One of the funniest stories I ever heard was that the Army tried to prove he was a homosexual. They quit early on that one. He never made a song I didn't like though Blue Christmas was close.

    I miss that era when he was doing movies and his live concerts even if I was not able to see him live in concert.

    Do I like his music?? YES. Do I like the man?? No. Why?? He was nothing more than a dope fiend that died due to it.

    God, no. I think women like Elvis more or less because he's a sex symbol. I don't see the talent that justifies the hype.

    Unsure. Elvis is probably my favourite singer, but looking at the way he was going, he might have ended up as a complete joke. At least he departed with some dignity left.

    Big time. I'm a big Elvis fan. Yesterday, for the 35th anniversary of his death, Turner Classic Movies aired 24 hours of his movies on their TV channel. Unfortunately, I didn't catch any of them. I really wish I had, though. If I had remembered that it was August 16th, I would have. I wish I could have seen him in concert at least once. elvis

    True. If it weren't true, I'd have no idea who we was. But I just wish I could have seen him in concert just once. But I was born 18 years too late for that.

    My grandmother had Elvis' autograph once upon a time. But she threw it away after she became a Christian.
  • capoeir... Jen 2012/08/22 17:54:40

    I don't understand. Did she feel he was a false idol? I don't get it because I'm a Christian and I love Elvis. And I could see why she wouldn't want to sell it, but she could have even given it away to an Elvis collector who would really appreciate it.

    Agreed. He always had the same kind soul. The one thing I didn't like about him when he was older was that he was not living a healthy lifestyle. He might have lived longer to put more beautiful music into this world.
