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.

Anyway.

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.

Check out your local businesses this season.

Come on, The King's 'Santa Claus Is Back In Town' is a hunka hunka burnin' seasonal blues! Credit where credit's due, eh?

Actually, I believe the PE line is "Elvis was a hero to some but he never meant s**t to me, straight up racist..." That's from the decidedly sketchy memory of VERY white 40-year old guy.

The Big Rock (if I can call him that) and I were referring to the album by the great power pop band The Wonderstuff, titled "Never Loved Elvis".
