Messages & Poems by Oriza Martins 




Elvis Presley



* At Sun Studio in Memphis Elvis Presley called to life what would soon be known as rock and roll with a voice that bore strains of the Grand Ole Opry and Beale Street, of country and the blues. At that moment, he ensured — instinctively, unknowingly — that pop music would never again be as simple as black and white.
>> David Fricke in Rolling Stone (1986)


* There is something magical about watching a man who has lost himself find his way back home... He sang with the kind of power people no longer expect from rock 'n' roll singers.
>> John Landau, review of the TV Special Elvis (1968).


* Ask anyone. If it hadn't been for Elvis, I don't know where popular music would be. He was the one that started it all off, and he was definitely the start of it for me.
>> Elton John

* He had total love in his eyes when he performed. He was the total androgynous beauty. I would practice Elvis in front of the mirror when I was twelve or thirteen years old.
>> k.d. lang

* Before Elvis, there was nothing.
>> John Lennon

* A lot has been written and said about why he was so great, but I think the best way to appreciate his greatness is just to go back and play some of the old records... Time has a way of being very unkind to old records, but Elvis' keep getting better and better.
>> Huey Lewis




* When I first heard Elvis' voice, I just knew that I wasn't going to work for anybody, and nobody was going to be my boss. He is the deity supreme of rock and roll religion as it exists in today's form. Hearing him for the first time was like busting out of jail. I thank God for Elvis Presley.
>> Bob Dylan

* Don't blame it on Elvis, for shakin' his pelvis
Shakin' the pelvis been in style way back since the River Nile
>> The Fabulous McClevertys, calypso singers (1957)

* I learned music listening to Elvis' records. His measurable effect on culture and music was even greater in England than in the States.
>> Mick Fleetwood
