Quote from Leonard Bernstein:” Elvis Presley is the greatest cultural force in the 20th century,” the famous composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein told a reporter from TIME in the late 1960s. When the reporter prodded, skeptical, about the cultural influence of other legendary artists like Picasso, Bernstein merely reiterated, “No, it’s Elvis.”
ELVIS is the greatest cultural force of the twentieth century. He introduced the beat to everything, music, language, clothes, it’s a whole new social revolution.. the 60’s comes from it.

“An American Trilogy”
“Oh I wish I was in Dixie, away, away
I’ll take my stand
To live and die in Dixie
For Dixieland where I was born
Early Lord one frosty morn’
Look away, look away, look away, Dixieland
So hush, little baby, don’t you cry
You know your daddy’s bound to die
But all my trials, Lord, soon be over”
Yes, your trials are over but your memory and music live.
It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn’t go alone, for part of us went with you the day God called you home. No tears that you are gone, just smiles that you lived!
