THE FUNNY SIDE OF ELVIS PRESLEY :D
- PART 1 -
This video contains three dialogues between Elvis and his audience - and also with his band - during the show that he did in College Park, Maryland, on September 28, 1974.
Here you can hear how Elvis liked to have fun on stage. It is still not an official release by the way...
Some websites tell Elvis was on drugs during that evening. It is not my opinion. Indeed, if we except some marihuana taken during the 1950s and only one experience on LSD with Priscilla in the 1960s, Elvis never did drugs in the 1970s. I'd better say that he was under the effect of his medical prescriptions.
Elvis didn't act differently in every show that he did during that September-October 1974 tour. You can hear it in the FTD release "Dragon Heart", recorded on October 1st 1974 in South Bend, Indianna...
I still wonder why some fans still don't accept that Elvis acted sometimes like Jim Morrison or Serge Gainsbourg !
I had the opportunity to meet the TCB Band twice in Paris, in 2002 and 2003. During the second meeting, after the show, I could speak longer with the guys of the crew (James Burton, Jerry Scheff, Ronnie Tutt, Glen D. Hardin & The Imperials). And as I knew James Burton was the only one of them who did all the shows with Elvis, without exception, from 1969 to 1977, I asked him about the College Park concert. At first he said that he didn't remember it. But when I quoted Elvis he answered : "It was the way of Elvis to have fun with the audience".
The first time I met Elvis' musicians it was great and very impressive ! Scotty Moore was there and he played with Jerry Scheff and Glen D. Hardin for the very first time ! When they begun one of the classic songs, they made two false starts. Then Scotty complained to Jerry and Glen : "Look what Elvis and you made with my chords during the Seventies !!!" It was very funny ! :D
After the show, I gave my videocamera to Jerry Scheff and he filmed me in company of Scotty and Glen. And Scotty showed his middle finger to the camera ! :D I Wonder if Elvis wouldn't do the same...
It was great too when I met Sonny West, Myrna Smith from The Sweet Inspirations and Ed Bonja in Berlin, in 2007. Sonny spoke about his life with Elvis, he answered some questions and made some pictures with us. Myrna even took my 3 years old son on her knees for a photo ! They are all very friendly guys, I tell you ! ;)
LONG LIVE ELVIS !
*** As my video was too long for YouTube (around 12:30), I had to cut it in two parts. But you can see it in its integrality in Dailymotion, in the following link :
