In loving memory of Elvis (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977)



I don’t admire nobody, but Elvis Presley was the sweetest, most humble and nicest man you’d want to know. 


Singing ability, he had everything and he was pretty, I know. And when it comes to boxing, nobody has the class, the style, the wit, the speed and beauty of Ali. When it comes to singing, nobody had everything like Elvis. And the last thing, he did lot for poor people, he cared for people, he had a good heart, he just wasn’t a person who was great with talent but great in spirit and with God in his heart, and this is great too. (…) I don’t have to say what I don’t feel, I’m not false I don’t have to say this. I’m free. He to me is one of the greatest singers, actors and all round men of all time.
