Personal Quote:

A lot has been written and said about why he was so great, but I think the best way to appreciate his greatness is just to go back and play some of the old records. Time has a way of being very unkind to old records, but Elvis' keep getting better and better.

Trivia:

Tattoo (Givin' It All Up For Love), on the Picture This album (Huey's second album), is a cover of a Phil Lynott song (whom he had played with prior to forming the News). See more »
