Elvis Presley ~ Ranked #3 Rolling Stone 100 Greatest Artists in 2004 ~ “I was eight years old when I saw the '68 comeback special - which was probably an advantage. I hadn't the critical faculties to divide the different Elvises into different categories or sort through the contradictions. Pretty much everything I want from guitar, bass and drums was present: a performer annoyed by the distance from his audience; a persona that made a prism of fame's wide-angle lens; a sexuality matched only by a thirst for God's instruction.” ~ Bono ~ 2004 © Rolling Stone
