New York Daily News reports:

>>>Nearly 40 years after Elvis Presley's death, a new tell-all about his life and times alleges that the King of Rock and Roll deliberately overdosed on pills.

It's called "My Brother Elvis," and it's bound to leave fans all shook up.

The book's author, David E. Stanley, became Presley's step-brother in 1960 when his mom married The King of Rock and Roll's widowed father, Vernon Presley.

Stanley, who also worked for Elvis, writes that he last saw Presley on Aug. 14, 1977 - at which time The King told him that he was going away for a few days, but when they next met up, he would be "on a higher plane." Presley was found dead in his Memphis mansion two days later.

Stanley writes that Presley had "done this on purpose" and recalls wondering why.
According to Stanley, paramedics, family and aides were called to Graceland when Presley died, and they found pills and syringes surrounding The King's lifeless body. He quickly started shoving the damning evidence into his pockets before police arrived.

Stanley describes a very dark period leading up Elvis' final days when the singer was on so many prescription pills that his inner circle would stand watch around the clock to help him get to the bathroom. According to Stanley, Elvis frequently couldn't make the trip, which meant the vigil would turn into a cleanup session.<<<

Somehow I'm not that surprised...

Lol! I'm sure he is.

First I've heard of that forum. I see it's in the list of most active forums.

Hinch, in 1983 I drove from San Francisco to Norfolk, Virginia and my travel time for the 3,000 was ten days. I saw a lot of things for the Ist tine and Graceland (like Mount Vernon and the Jack Daniels distillery) was one of my stops on that adventure. If you have the means (Ferris...Ferris!) I do recommend it (as any American must do) for your viewing pleasure. I was there during the first year it was open to the public and the lines back then were much shorter than you will find them today. "You are parked in Hound Dog 4...HOUND DOG FOUR!")

I've never been to Graceland. Several family members visited there quite a few years ago. I probably should have gone.

A friend and I did go to Memphis in the early 1990s but didn't visit Graceland. We spent most of our time at the zoo, and in downtown Memphis. We also visited Al Green's church, hoping he would be there. Unfortunately he wasn't.

Elvis Fan could still be around these parts (under another name of course.)

March 16, 1974: Elvis Presley played the first of four concerts (two shows on March 16, and evening shows on the 17th and 20th) at the Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis, Tennessee.

I saw Elvis in Nashville in 1973. I took my girl friend, my sister and my mother. I don't remember he did two shows. We went to the evening show. This site has the set list.

Phil ,
I regularly play his Sun recordings .Being a bit of a Rockabilly fan I find they have the raw quality that his more polished RCA discs lacked .

John Lennon famously said that without Elvis Presley there'd have been no Beatles. Less well known is that the King - who would have been 80 - was still impacting the group some 25 years after Lennon's untimely death.

It seems Paul McCartney was listening, and closely, when a Junkie XL remix of Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" topped the charts in nine different countries back in 2002. "I'd been getting a little bit jealous," McCartney tells Steven Van Zandt. "I was seeing remixes of, like, Elvis' things coming out - and I was thinking: `That sounds good, man.' You know, it's still Elvis, but they've put a new beat behind it. I thought: `I kind of like that.'"
Then, a few years later, he was approached about doing a Fab Four-themed Cirque du Soleil production, which eventually became 2006's Love. McCartney, no doubt still remembering Elvis Presley, says he jumped at the chance to oversee a series of remixes - hand picking Beatles producer George Martin's son Giles to do the work.
McCartney has since worked with the younger Martin on his 2013 release New (on which Giles produced or co-produced a half dozen tracks including "On My Way to Work"), as well as McCartney's current single - a video game-themed track titled "Destiny." Turns out, it all started (once again) with Elvis Presley.

Nope. He's in the back where he went face down in his 12th peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich. He sure does like Elvis.
