Music, once performed for audiences is now packaged and marketed to niche here and a niche there and every where there’s a new niche. Chasing markets like chasing a high.

‘Elvis Films FAQ’ Book Review: Elvis’ Hollywood years are full of mystery, and supposedly ‘Elvis Films FAQ’ covers them all! Elvis Films FAQ by author Paul Simpson explores his best and worst moments as an actor, analyses the bizarre autobiographical detail that runs through so many of his films, and reflects on what it must be like to be idolized by millions around the world yet have to make a living singing about dogs, chambers of commerce, and fatally naive shrimps.
After all if Elvis Presley had not wanted to be a movie star, he would never have single-handedly revolutionized popular culture.
Yet this aspect of his phenomenal career has been much maligned and misunderstood – partly because the King himself once referred to his 33 movies as a rut he had got stuck in just off Hollywood Boulevard. full review: http://www.elvisinfonet.com/book_review_elvis_films_FAQ.html

there’s a photo of him holding the yearbook
When I was in Memphis in 1987, I bought a copy of this photo in a gift store. I had never seen it before and the homoerotic factor hit home a while later in a Georgia Straight newspaper interview, Jerry lee Lewis – at the time of the Dennis Quaid bio-flick, talked about him and Elvis riding bikes nude and that if anyone knew then what they had gotten up to – both of their careers would have been over.
Nick had a small part in Rebel and this is Elvis impersonating Brando.
I don’t know if it’s the combination of the corporate suits and the half naked pretty boy that makes this homoerotic or just the juxtapostions of the energies

I’ve never gotten over what they call stage–fright. I go through it every show. I’m pretty concerned, I’m pretty much thinking about the show. I never get completely comfortable with it, and I don’t let the people around me get comfortable with it, in that I remind them that it’s a new crowd out there, it’s a new audience, and they haven’t seen us before. So it’s got to be like the first time we go on.
