Well, partner, another year is gone, and I for one am damn glad it's gone! It was a hell of a bad year for everyone, even rock icons that wish to not be found. Poor ol' George Harrison went to that big studio in the sky. As you know I never really liked them moptops that well, but I'd never wish for a fellow musician to bite the big one. He was kinda' whiny with all his peace talk and what with his hangin out with that Maharishi fella' an all, but I'll say that he DID play a pretty original style of guitar, and he was a classy sort of guy. That Bin Laden faggot though is another story entirely. Any chicken shit coward that strikes blindly at his foe without regard for innocents and without any moral fabric or decency deserves to just be taken out and shot, no questions asked. Young George Jr. has got a lot more restraint than I would. I'd have just nuked 'em all and then gone in and made a really big golf course out of that God-forsaken territory over there. My old pal Tricky Dick probably would have done it that way. Boy, he and I used to eat a lot of donuts together. Y'know, he made me an honorary member of the FBI. It was all unofficial and all, but he DID give me some phone numbers of fella's that could help me out in a pinch. And when I was sick of the whole music business and wanted out, I called some of them guys and they set up the whole fake Elvis death thing. By the way, I finally got shed of those damn pills! I've dropped about 55 pounds and feel as fit as I did back when I made my Singer Comeback Special. I still got my sideburns but in street clothes you'd hardly notice me in a crowd, and nobody ever does. Sometimes I get a raised eyebrow or a double take, but enough years have passed and Father Time has taken his toll on my face, so people just look once and then shrug their shoulders and say "Naaaw, it can't be". Sometimes I miss the lights and music and crowds of women, but what's done is done and I ain't goin' back. I'd rather everyone remember me as I was in the old days. Anyway, the music business has just become that much worse. It's full of bean counters and lawyers (and I HATE lawyers!) and all the boy bands and rap crap - THAT AIN"T MUSIC! - well, I'm just bitter about the whole ordeal. If I'd have seen what would have become of rock and roll I never would have recorded Hound Dog or All Shook Up. I'd have left that womanizer Jerry Lee take the credit! Haha. Well, I was just checkin' in with you as I always do at the end of the year. That boy of yours is sure getting' big. My Memphis Mafia spies tell me he's taking an interest in drums and knob twistin'. Good for him! Maybe in another few years he can produce my "Come Back" album! Now THAT would be funny as hell! And NO ONE would believe it was really me until they heard the first track. I STILL got "the voice". Sometimes when I'm singing in the shower I let go with a little Jailhouse Rock and it feels pretty good, but I have to be careful so no one hears me or they'd know. There's only ONE Elvis, and I'm him! God Bless and good luck in the new year.

Don't know if you remeber me from about '85 but I played guitar with Average Citizen who recorded at your studio (8-track analog). You made it sound like at least a 16-track so I can just imagine what you can do with what you've got now. Would love to hear from you. P.S. I'm the guy that built that homemade "Talkbox". Take Care.

Bob: I suspect that it has been too many years since we last saw each other for you to have any real memory of me. Furthermore, I was a year behind you at AFA and most probably beneath your notice, if not your contempt. I do remember your band and how truly awful it was. I am glad to see that you have stayed with music and have I suspect learned much and found some better sidepersons If ever i venture into your part of Arkansas I just might drop in and see what you have been doing all of these years. Best Wishes, Bob Amos

Hi Bob. I came upon your website tonight and know I didn't see half of it but it brought back so many memories. I remember "The Vipers" jamming in the back room of Eddie's Music City when it just off the square. I remember your lovely Mother and love the way you give tribute to everyone who has been a part of your life. Can't wait to see the "Star Trek" at work this year. Your Mother would be proud. Keep up the good work. Pat (Wagner) Babcock

Hey, Bob, well we made it through the first year of the new century. Man, did it ever go by fast!!! Well, can't say that I miss the Ozarks at this very moment, seeing the disaster Arkansas has been going through with the most severe ice storms probably the last 50 years! Man, don't miss those cold temps. It's been a nice and sunny 70 plus degrees here on the West Coast. I'll be coming back there for a visit when there's reasonable weather abounding!! Heh heh heh! You keep those logs on the fire going, here? Later!
