elvis cover for this tour

Not in place of a motown cover but in addition to a motown cover. It's time. There hasn't been an elvis cover (played live) since 78.

I vote for "Can't Help Falling in Love with You". Mick vocals.

I think anything he did during his Sun years would be cool. How about Jailhouse Rock....the Stones would crush that

I agree - always thought that would be a natural for the Stones. That's Allright Mama would also be an easy one to pull off for them. They could do it sort of like a rave-up a-la '94's version of It's All Over Now.

Great thread. Excellent idea. Esplendido.

Time to dust off "Memphis, Tennessee" from earliest years.
"Just Tell Her Jim Said Hello".
"In The Ghetto"

please don't get mad... did elvis cover the stones? elvis didn't write any of his songs and with all the great jagger/richards songs i much rather they do their own stuff... if you must cover other peoples work... try doing keith's talk is cheap album!

Hot Stuff,
I thought the same thing but my wife is an Elvis freak and during one of our Elvis vs Chuck Berry/Little Richard debates she pointed out many songs which he was credited in writing. Most of the stuff that is popular are covers but his name is on quite a song credits. I told my wife that it was a contractual thing but she disaagrees

Following hot stuff partly:
I still want some of the Winos instead of the Mme.Tussauds-figures who crowd the Stones´ stage nowadays.

i think your wife is wrong... he never in the sense wrote anything... he may have added a word or 2 and was given credit...but he is not in any class of chuck berry, john/paul, mick/keith or elton john....
plus i don't want the stones to do anything for a person, who for the most part, hated what the stones did, sex, drugs and rock and roll..
as you may recall elvis went to see president nixon and offered his services to spy on the hippies and drug users in the music business.. well who were bigger drug users in the 70's than the stones? i want more stones and less fillers...ha!

by who..the press? the only true king was chuck berry... he invented rock and roll.... but because he was black, he didn't get the tv or radio time that elvis did...but he could write,sing, dance... most of todays riff's were 1st played by berry.... elvis couldn't write, play....but was a great singer...
and he was very sexy..... berry had a darker edge to him...looks a little rough too! elvis covered someone else's dreams, work and visions..berry did his own...thats the mark of a true king...his works will live on!!
most people can't name 5 elvis songs...they know his name but not his songs!

that's bunk. Berry didn't invent anything - he wrote some cool songs and stole song cool licks. Elvis was no "media creation" - he single-handedly put an image to rock'r'roll that lives on to this very day. Without Elvis, there would have been no Jagger, Daltry or any other "face" or "frontman" to rock'n'roll. Get real.

Re: elvis cover for this tour

thats not true... there were many great singer well before elvis... just ask chuck berry, james brown... i never heard anyone say that chuck berry stole anything...i don't want to be mean, but i think you had to just make that up... because it isn't true... i only said that elvis was not king because he just sang other peoples stuff... even jerry lee lewis had more gifts, and if not for booze and pills would have been bigger than elvis!
elvis was a star...a man with loads of talent..just like the singers on american idol....but to be king you need to start something, like berry, the beatles, the stones, muddy waters, rdmc,.....

there is no other rock star who heled jagger.... he is a true rock star...
he had big lips, was not real good looking..had long hair... talked like a low class englishmen. did and said what he wanted...wrote his own stuff...did it his way...had early songs titled, stupid girl, back street girl, under my thumb,etc. elvis did nothing for mick jagger.......or the rolling stones...
even the old saying, drugs, sex and rock and roll was coined after the rolling stones!!!!!!

Ask Jagger who invented "the rock star." He'll tell you. Berry didn't steal? Ask Johnnie Johnson. I didn't say there weren't rock singers before Elvis - but the ones you cite came after him. I said Elvis put an image and face (and body) on the music...without that rock'n'roll would never have evolved. I think you are quite biased against the man and it shows with your poor discussion of the facts.

please don't give me this.. elvis started his career in 1954..chuck the true king berry started in 1952..... elvis copied berry and they all copied muddy waters, nat king cole....

johnnie played the panio and chuch the guitar riffs...jagger/richards took berry lead... but didn't copy elvis...

elvis is FAR BIGGER dead with his record sales than when he was alive...
elvis was and is the true press king!

i like elvis...great singer....but he is no mozart, cole, berry, lennon or jagger!
they wrote and really started something...came from their hearts, minds and soul and gave it to the world...

Berry didn't touch the charts until '55
Berry stole the guitar licks from Johnson - that's in litigation and has plenty of facts to support it
Elvis has sold millions of records before and after death - what's that got to do with the debate?

get your facts straight if you want to have an intelligent discussion, otherwise....NEXT?!!!!

Come o n, folks... What are we dealing with here?
Elvis or Chuckster? Why choose?
The former is a karate kidster and a cop wannabe. And THE KING.
The latter is Keefsters nightmare and a strange creature from outer space.
And The Rock 'n' Roll Man No 1.

We´d better be discussin how, in a positive sense, they´ve influenced each other.
...Arent they two sides of the same coin?

Don´t we remember Hound Dog anymore?? Memphis June 28,1978

The Stones can't play Elvis songs the way The King did it. And Elvis can't play Elvis. Way to different from eachother. But Elvis and The Stones have one thing in common: Their love for R&B. Maybe The Stones can play Jimmy Reeds' Baby what do you want me to do like the way Elvis did it...

I enjoy a good, healthy sharing of varying opinions - but when facts are mis-cited and used to support the opinion, that agitates me. I love Chuck and Elvis equally - both were obviously enornmous influences on the Stones. But, let's not diss THE KING with poor documentation to support such assertions. To say he was merely a media creation is utter and total folly.
