One of my real goals was to hear someone whistling a song I'd written
In the Ghetto, I'd been trying to write for years
Every performer who ever performed in rock and roll or even close to it is lying if they tell you that they weren't influenced in some way or another by Elvis Presley. He turned the world around
There was a chance for me to write one song for the section where Elvis sat in his black leather outfit and sang the old hits. At eight oclock the next morning I had written Memories
It's pretty amazing to me that my first hit record was an Elvis Presley record.
