Overview

While Elvis Presley spoke to a whole generation through his music, whether in a ballad, a gospel hymn, or pure rock 'n' roll, there was much more to him than just his music and movies. Wherever he went, he was accessible to his adoring fans and inquisitive reporters. Many questions they asked focused on his personal life, ranging from love and marriage to his musical style, from his religious beliefs to his family. He answered them all politely and forthrightly. Elvis Speaks is a collection of comments from the King of Rock 'n' Roll -- what he said on a variety of topics such as loneliness, performing in front of live audiences, his fans, the army, music, love, and religion. The words are pure Elvis. They come from the heart and reflect the man behind the entertainer and beyond the gates of Graceland, the Cadillacs, the gold records, and the money. Elvis Speaks reveals a man who loved to entertain people and found both heartache and happiness in a career that spanned nearly three decades.
