The Beatles: John Lennon, Paul McCartney felt Elvis Presley was ‘ruined by the army’ | Music | Entertainment

McCartney added: “But [we] didn’t like him with the short haircut in the army calling everyone ‘sir.’”

On Elvis’ post-army songs like Hard-Headed Woman, Paul said: “There’s a dreadful great big trombone right in the middle of it, and we thought, ‘What in hell has happened?’

“It just seemed he’d gone establishment, and his records after that weren’t so good.”

While in one of his final interviews, just two days before his death, Lennon also said the army was a big turning point for The King.
