Elvis in Your Stocking
And then it was Richard Pryor. In a final, perhaps unintentional joke, they haven't yet updated the website linked above. Top of the page shows a picture of Pryor, and a word balloon reading "I aint dead yet, motherfucker." Perfect. Pryor, Bruce, Hicks. In that order. See ya, funny man.
Never loved Elvis (guess the reference, 80's/90's college rock kids). It's true. Never did. Never got his shtick. Well, I got it, but it didn't do anything for me. Not like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Esquerita do it for me. But I do understand that a whole heck of a lot of other folks think he was (and is, depending on one's view of his supposed death. On a toilet.) the cat's meow. Deified, no less.
Eddie Cochran and the Holly Twins love Elvis. They'd like to have a little of that action this holiday season.
