Perhaps no other musician has known the pressure of living up to an image the way Elvis Presley did. The king of rock ‘n’ roll became one of the most successful artists and cultural icons in American history during his career, dominating the 1950s music charts with such hits as “Heartbreak Hotel” and “Hound Dog,” before finding success as an actor in films like “Love Me Tender” and “Jailhouse Rock.” Yet Presley often expressed a feeling of deep loneliness even in the face of his fans’ feverish adoration. His words here suggest that no matter how perfect a person may seem from the outside, we’re all human, and we’re all in need of empathy and compassion.
