Re: “Why I stopped hating Elvis Presley

This is a great article. As a worshipper of black music from my teenage years I too was one of those who took Chuck D's words to heart and began to be a bit cynical about Elvis. My attitude changed over time and some digging showed me that Elvis was a white kid just like myself, listening to black music and "getting it", and wanting to share the love of this music to the world. If anyone has any doubt about his genuine love of this music and these artists, i urge you to read the amazing biography on the early Elvis years by Peter Guralnick called "Last Train to Memphis". It stands up next to his books on Sam Cooke and Southern soul and it's well worth checking out.
