Welcome to the moonshine…moonshine…moonshine jungle tour
What I like about Elvis is the same thing I like about James Brown, Michael Jackson, Prince. These guys, back in the day, there was no smoke and mirrors. It was just raw talent. They would step out onstage and command an audience. Talk about awesome.
I don’t know the backstory, sorry. It’s not a topic that Eric or the family have spoken about.
"There is no greater bliss than dancing and performing. It is like a celebration and when you are caught up in that place, where certain performers go when they become one with the music, one with the audience, if you are on that level, it is like being in a trance, it just takes over. You start to play off each other and start to know where you are going before you get there. They have got to know where you are taking it and respond. It is like playing ping-pong. It is like when the birds go and they all know when they are going. Or like fish. They are telepathic, they are on the same line. That´s what happens when you perform, you are at one with the musicians and the dance and the music and you are in this trance. And man, you got ´em. They are in the palm of your hand. It´s unbelievable. You feel you are transformed. (…) It is divine, it is pure, it is revelation without making it sound spiritual or religious, but it is a divine energy. Some people call it the spirit, like when the spirit comes into the room. Some people look down on it. Religions sometimes look down on it because they try to say it´s demonic, it´s the cult, it´s the devil. It isn´t. It is God-like. It is pure God-like energy. You feel God´s light.”
