Elvis 100% on SIC TV Channel
Carlos Santos' (Nș.1) and Humberto Ladeira's (Nș.11) interviews follow. About Carlos they say that he is a fan of the Father of Rock since he was 11, about Humberto they say that he's proud of being the 11th member of this Fan Club. They also tell a brief story on how each one "found" Elvis. Carlos Santos ended his story by saying, "And now I am an 100% Elvis fan." It couldn't have been more adequate! Humberto Ladeira: "He manages to sing rock'n'roll, romantic ballads, country, gospel... everything, and very well. And the strength he had in a live concert is really something that I cannot see in other more radical big rock bands. He had... I don't know... a different charisma." A few moments later, Humberto still adds: "The song that really better expresses the way he lived is when he sings: And now the end is near and so I face the final curtain..." (initial excerpt of My Way).
Both Carlos and Humberto said a lot more, but we think that the interview ended beautifully, when the reporter asked Carlos Santos, "If you could have something on Elvis Presley that you still haven't got, what would you chose?" and Carlos answered: "I'd like to have him alive, with us, so he could still be singing."
