Sorry, this will be my last OT "what if" thread... my juices are flowing I have a feeling that by 1980, Elvis would have still be in such poor physical shape, that he would have halted touring and recording for a while. His health would have made touring almost impossible had he gotten worse.. and honestly, his Vegas, sequin jumpsuit act wouldnt have lasted much longer... it wouldnt have flown in the 80s. I think Elvis would have gotten into decent shape and quit drugs with the right attention. I think he would have simply given his life to Jesus or something, and done stricly gospel albums for a while. The 80s would've been a slow, dol-drum time for Elvis, sorta like they were for Johnny Cash. I think in the 90s Elvis would have been "reinvented" Johnny Cash style, by Rick Rubin, perhaps? Elvis pretty much did other people's songs anyhow his entire career... he could have done a hell of an album in 1994 or 1995 perhaps... he couldve done some U2 covers or something? I think also in the 90s Elvis could have landed some kickass movie roles. Imagine Elvis playing Nick Nolte's role in 48 Hours with Eddie Murphy *ok, that was 80s but you get my drift. In the 00s, Elvis IMO, would've become a fitness enthusiast. A karate expert, he already was... he could have done his own workout tapes. And even had his own grill or wok, sorta like George Foreman.
