Awesome: Elvis Presley
  • The 1968 televised show AKA "The Comeback Special". Wearing an iconic black leather outfit and making his first live performance since 1961, Elvis gives a series of hour-long concerts that proves, after many years of going Hollywood, that he was still an incredible musician. The concerts get edited into the overall special - along with other staged performances - and the special is hailed as an instant classic.
  • Asked his opinion on Vietnam, Elvis is said to have replied, "Ma'am, I'm just an entertainer," and walked away. Talk about tact.
    • When the reporter then asked if more entertainers should follow his lead and not speak out about Vietnam, Elvis answered "No." And that's why Elvis was awesome.
  • This 1977 performance of "Unchained Melody," showing that Elvis had one of rock's most powerful voices right up till the end.
