QuickPoll - Old And New

When news broke that Robert F. X. Sillerman bought a major interest in Elvis Presley Enterprises a lot of fans were scared. When the New York Times did a spread on his plans for the surroundings of Graceland the comparison with Disneyland was made. Therefore we asked you "Graceland should become the "Disneyland" of the South?” Only 17 percent of the 303 voters thought that to be a good idea to maintain Elvis' legacy. 83% would rather not see an "Elvisland" in Tennessee. Listening to the latest range of bootlegs coming out we get a lot of audience recordings and compilations. It seems like the bootleggers are doing what BMG has been doing for years on their main label; repacking old material and adding the odd unreleased tracks. With this in mind we want to ask you if you think the Follow That Dream collector's label achieved its goal by offering a legal catalogue of (unreleased) Elvis material.

I got to agree with Jerry, the fans that have stood by Elvis are not the young people they once were. They will have to have new ideas to keep Graceland and Elvis in the peoples mind. I have three children who all know how much Elvis means to me but they never saw him live like i did. (36 times) so i can tell them all about him but if you dont have the draw there they wont want to come. It will all work out fine.

As usual the "fans" are going off half-cocked about this Disneyland of the South stuff. Ain't gonna happen. Anyway, the walk around tour won't sustain the Elvis empire forever. Elvis' "core" fan base is aging. New and innovative ways must be found to attract the younger generation. Go get 'em Mr. Sillerman.
