I couldn't wait for the CD. I downloaded "For your Entertainment" as soon as it came on ITunes. Great exercise song. LOL

I'm trying to see what attracts you all to him, I really am........I'll just keep trying......


Yeah.......I'll stick with Elvis the Pelvis.
Flamboyant is subjective.

Elvis was considered flamboyant in his times. The pelvis ??!! The legs jerking ??!! The sexy undertones of both his body language and singing??!!

Good example of a singer not understood at first.

nuala - I agree, Elvis was thought to be pg rated back then. Adam just isn't understood yet.............but he will be.

There were tv shows where Elvis wasn't even filmed from the waist down.
His music was banned on some radio stations.
His concerts were picketed by self-righteous religious fanatics.

Corrupt youth, vulgar, indecent, outrageous, animalistic vibrations - all descriptors of Elvis' performances.

I like how this article puts it. Elvis was the first American Idol.

An Elvis Breakthrough - August 15, 2007 - The New York Sun

It was very interesting rereading how important Elvis was in breaking down barriers between blacks and whites. Elvis changed the face of music worldwide.

Elvis was just too important a figure in our culture and music to use as a comparison to anybody, imo. As John Lennon said, if there wasn't an Elvis, there wouldn't be the Beatles.

mi-mi, the same complaints you have about Adam were the same complaints leveled at Elvis, excluding the racial ones. You may not like his music, but I doubt anyone can deny Adam's talent.

We would love you to come over to "our side" and meet up when we go to his concert. Well Elvis isn't around, so might as well be with the living.
There are more of us! I have proof ~ Some glambertians choose not to post in this thread. LOL, on your last sentence.
