you never know, you never know what he’s going to do baz i mean even though he’s brilliant but this is Elvis yeah and um uh when we saw the show I was like well it looks like we’re going to be able to because he did it nailed it, I mean Austin he had all this set up to pull it off wow me I mean great we know what the fans think we know what the critics think but what would the king think about not just Austin’s performance but all of this around him and his legacy around Austin’s
legacy? because uh, he, you know, he studied it for two years, he had everything under control as a voice I took singing lessons, you probably already interviewed him, right, yeah, yeah, he took singing lessons and singing lessons, and you know you probably know too that he sang in the movie too and the voice went down to a you I mean Elvis probably couldn’t couldn’t believe it I really couldn’t believe it I’m surprised he didn’t try to sin you could probably say hey what are your tricks what do they do how you did it?
Certain? Are there moments where you think, uh, like I know the butterfly is him or I know the song that’s playing is him letting me know that he’s happy with everything you’ve had right now? it Right now, yeah, I really do, I do because this movie opened it up, it opened it up for this generation, kids of this generation now know who Elvis was and how we experienced him, so I think it’s a gift to Elvis.
