Re: Most Overrated
I just watched a special called "Elvis '56" about the year that he really took off.
It showed quite a few performances from that year, and I have to agree... I'm not sure how much of it was really about the music.
It went pretty much like:
1. 1st verse and refrain: sing with the whole "sneer" thing.
2. Solo: run around and convulse randomly while lead guitar guy plays a few licks
3. 2nd verse and refrain: back to the sneer
Seriously...I actually found it a bit odd. And I found myself drawing more similarities and comparisons of Elvis to Justin Bieber than Elvis to the Beatles.
Phillips declined to speak for reporters, but Cueto minced no words.
“I see that I have great numbers,” he said. “I thought the way I pitched this year, I’d have a chance to go to the All-Star Game. I don’t know what happened. I don’t if know the manager of All-Star Game is pissed at me because I went out with one of his girlfriends.”
