    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“[The song, based on an old gospel song, was] the fusion of all the elements that till then had simply failed to coalesce, ... It was the uninhibited, altogether abandoned sound of the church; it was the keening, ecstatic voicings by which the world has come to know Ray Charles best.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I was trying to tell as honest and true a story as I could, ... Really, the challenge is to portray the world the person lives in, and in the first volume it was an expanding world. You can see in 'Careless Love' how constricted Elvis' world becomes.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I thought a lot of people would dismiss the subject as trivial, ... and ... that regardless of what I achieved, the subject would be dismissed.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The real story is that the fans are tied to Elvis by the same loyalty that he showed to them, ... He did show an extraordinary sense of identification with the fans. He had an almost mystical belief that all of his strength -- and his very legitimacy -- came from his fans.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I didn't know Gate well, but I always appreciated him, most of all, his feisty, independent spirit and warm heart, ... Gate was the original contrarian, but there was always a well thought-out argument behind it. It wasn't just that Gate was unwilling to play the fool. He simply refused to live up to anyone else's definition or expectations of him. But I think this was part of his genius. From the start, Gate defined himself, both as a musician and as a man.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Everyone looked at him like he was their ... savior, ... everywhere he went he was an object of admiration and adoration -- and yet he couldn't muffle the growing discontent, the helplessness he felt at his inability to control not so much the world around him as his private world, the inner world that was revealed to no one but him.”
