 On the occasion of his concert at the Multomah Civic Stadium, on September 2, 1957, Elvis will hold a press conference before singing in his show.

 The small tour that he was doing was promoted by Lee Gordon, who was already responsible for the previous one carried out in the spring in Canada and the Midwest. He wanted Elvis to tour Australia again, but he was unsuccessful with the Colonel.



 Before the show as planned there was a press conference in Portland.

 Elvis was very cordial with the journalists, who asked him professional and personal questions. On this day Elvis Presley talked much more than usual with them.

The journalists wanted to find out if Elvis had a stable relationship and asked him about the marriage, Elvis said:

 "Often when I'm supposed to marry a girl on a certain night, I'll go out with another girl and get married at some point. I don't want to get married now, and I don't know the girl to challenge me." "This is confusing to me, and it may surprise me and wake me up and anyone I want to marry: But if I meet her, I will marry her. I will not overlook love. All these fans of mine will marry and have families However, I think marriage would hurt my career now."



 They asked him about Anita Wood, with whom he went out from time to time, but he said that they were good friends, he did not give any further explanations, although there really was a more important relationship that only her friends and family would know about.

 About the albums of him, the recordings of him said:

 "I don't have the best voice in the world, so when I record I have to feel it."

 Of his favorite artists, Elvis named "The Four Aces", "Nat King Cole", "Dean Martin" and "Pat Boone".

 There were many reporters even Elvis recognized one from TV, John Salisbury.

 Elvis confessed that he wore sideburns because the truckers he had admired as a child wore them. He would also confess that he sometimes felt lonely and that despite appearances he didn't do everything that Colonel Parker told him to do.

 


From the way he was, he said that he was independent and had respect for his mother and father, he had no vices, neither smoked nor drank.

 About his music, he said that he liked fast songs, but he really enjoyed singing Gospel songs.

 About the way he acted on stage he said that his movements came naturally to him, and there was nothing wrong with it, etc.

There was an autograph and photo session, which lasted longer than in other cities, since there were DJs, journalists, TV reporters, club presidents and winners of five or six radio contests organized for him and his DJs. Elvis attended everyone, as always friendly and attentive.

  He impressed by his way of being close, respectful and interested in pleasing everyone. His good looks also drew a lot of attention in general.




 Disc jockey Bob Blackburn described him as very friendly and very personable, without seeming like a star.

 Evidently, Elvis had not changed with the success, nor with the criticism, he was still himself, natural and close, without frills, a simple boy who did what he liked to do the most.
