Oil
 

  Elvis playing the piano, oil on canvas, 12x8ins.

I love loads of music; AC/DC, Brian Wilson, Tom Waits, Fleet Foxes, ZZ Top... There's room in the world for all of them, and I don't spend my time pointlessly moaning about 'how crap' those singers/bands are that don't do it for me, as many people seem to do. Consequently, I've grown a little tired of the contingent that snidely dismisses Bob Dylan"'cos he can't sing" or Elvis Presley as over-rated, often claiming he couldn't sing or play instruments. So, this is a long way of explaining why I painted this, a shot of Presley relaxing and playing an instrument he simply learned to play competently by listening, watching others, and playing one when he could. And he could sing too...
