Thread: Elvis Presley

    I haven't read goldman's book myself, based on reviews from other fans. Some people just like to trash him

    I wouldn't believe anything coming out of the mouths any of the Stanley family.
    It's common knowlege that Elvis didn't care for his step mother. People close to him said he felt sorry for the boys. They were very young when Vernon married their mother. According to them (Elvis Friends) he was always good to them. They developed fairly heavy drug use (most likely from early exposure to it)

    In the years following Elvis' death any and everybody was writing books. Publishers didn't want sweet tributes about him. They wanted something sensational so the book would sell. It was way out of hand because they had to try and top the latest book to get a contract. Some of those closest to Elvis held out the longest, but eventually most of them bowed to the need for money. The funniest result from all the books was when Marty Lacker wrote his book and told horrible things about Elvis and then expressed his sorrow that Elvis had died before he was able to pay him back the cash he had loaned him to buy his house. Priscilla promptly sued him for it. I don't remember how it came out if I ever even heard, but it was funny.

    Some of those guys had lived off Elvis' income for years. They strutted around like peacocks as if they had achieved great things in their lives...not all of them, but some of them did.

    I need to find out how to upload photos here. I have so many beautiful Pictures both on stage and candid shots none of which I made myself. I purchased most of them from the folks who did.

    When I was in London last weekend I went to see Million Dollar Quartet, it was brilliant. The star of the show was the guy playing old Jerry Lee Lewis. The whole show was amazing and the guy playing Elvis was mighty fine! Go and see it !

    I read Elvis and Me and really enjoyed it. Obviously it was written from Priscilla's side of things but she didn't slate him. I think they genuinely loved each other but they grew apart and let's face it, it can't be easy being married to Elvis Presley x

    I wish I could go to Graceland today. Hard to believe it's been 34 years since The King died. I'm going to spend the day listening to his music and watching some of his flicks. I'm watching Jailhouse Rock right now. He was so HOT!

    RIP Elvis...You'll always be The King of Rock N Roll.

    34 years ago, i was watching Gilligan's Island. They pre-empted it to announce Elvis' death. I was pissed. I was far more upset when Bob Denver died. This says something bad about me, but I am not sure just what.

    Elvis Presley: If I Can Dream

    There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
    Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
    If I can dream of a better land
    Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
    Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true
    Oh why

    There must be peace and understanding sometime
    Strong winds of promise that will blow away
    the doubt and fear
    If I can dream of a warmer sun
    Where hope keeps shining on everyone
    Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear

    We're lost in a cloud
    With too much rain
    We're trapped in a world
    That's troubled with pain
    But as long as a man
    Has the strength to dream
    He can redeem his soul and fly

    Deep in my heart there's a tremblin' question
    Still I am sure that the answer, answer's gonna come somehow
    Out there in the dark, there's a beckoning candle, yeah
    And while I can think, while I can talk
    While I can stand, while I can walk
    While I can dream, please let my dream
    Come true......right now

    My sister and I were waiting at a red light on South Lee and Highway 20, en route to see Smokey and the Bandit, when she goes "Elvis is dead. It's not a joke, either." I was like I was never a diehard fan but it is so shocking for an icon like Elvis to die.

    I just recently got into Elvis due to a friend of mine....been listening on youtube to some of his songs I never heard before.....he sings with a deep feeling more in the seventies than his commercialized songs....he really had a feeling towards his songs.

    I believe that Elvis was performing in concert in Notre Dame, WI when this incident happened:

    There were some ladies who had a banner that said, "Elvis: You're The King!" and he immediately stopped the show and pointed at them and said, "NO! I'm just a man! Jesus Christ is King!"

    Here's a song that gets me everytime - especially when coupled with the video footage:

    I know I'm not a public person, but I wished him a happy birthday on his death day in 2009 right smack dab on this thread. And somebody corrected me, I go "Better late than never." Lol.

    Elvis was a Jew. He wore both a star of david and cross necklace.....just to be sure he got into heaven.
    He had a star of David put on his mothers tombstone in 1970.

    Elvis lives!

    Back porch preacher preaching at me
    Acting like he wrote the golden rules
    Shaking his fist and speeching at me
    Shouting from his soap box like a fool<a href="http://www.testimania.com/">Testi Canzoni</a>
    Come Sunday morning he's lying in bed
    With his eye all red, with the wine in his head
    Wishing he was dead when he oughta be
    Heading for Sunday school

    Clean up your own backyard
    Oh don't you hand me none of your lines
    Clean up your own backyard
    You tend to your business, I'll tend to mine

    Drugstore cowboy criticizing
    Acting like he's better than you and me
    Standing on the sidewalk supervising
    Telling everybody how they ought to be
    Come closing time 'most every night
    He locks up tight and out go the lights
    And he ducks out of sight and he cheats on his wife
    With his employee

    Clean up your own backyard
    Oh don't you hand me none of your lines
    Clean up your own backyard
    You tend to your business, I'll tend to mine

    Armchair quarterback's always moanin'
    Second guessing people all day long
    Pushing, fooling and hanging on in
    Always messing where they don't belong
    When you get right down to the nitty-gritty
    Isn't it a pity that in this big city
    Not a one a'little bitty man'll admit
    He could have been a little bit wrong

    Clean up your own backyard
    Oh don't you hand me, don't you hand me none of your lines
    Clean up your own backyard
    You tend to your business, I'll tend to mine

    Clean up your own backyard

    Elvis always had a keen interest in learning about all faiths. He was quite quite well read and owned many, many books that encompassed many religions, faiths and philosophies of life.

    It's interesting that Elvis added a Star of David to his mother's tombstone, as she was not Jewish (unless I have really missed something)! If Gladys was Jewish, Elvis would have automatically have been Jewish, as are all children born to a Jewish mother. If his mother was not Jewish, the only way Elvis could have been Jewish would be if he formally studied and converted to that faith. He may have admired some tenets of Judaism, but I don't think at all that he was Jewish, either by birth or conversion. In one of his concerts, someone called him "The King", and he responded that "Jesus Christ is king"- a Jewish person would NEVER say that.

    Just as an FYI, and certainly no offense meant, the Jewish faith does not believe in a literal heaven or hell, nor do they believe Jesus to be a prophet, savior or the literal
    son of God. Jesus, a Jew, was literally a carpenter by profession and went on to be a great teacher and humanitarian- this is how he is viewed by those people who are of
    the Jewish faith. (My husband is Jewish and through the years, we have discussed many aspects of Judaism, as well as many other faiths, religions and philosophies of life.)

    I'm a little late, but I still wanted to come in and pay my respects to Elvis. He may have died before I was even born, but I was "raised" on Elvis and wish all the time that I could have just seen him once in concert. What an amazing entertainer. There will never be anyone like him.

    The Presley family attended the Assembly of God Christian church- very fundamentalist and lots of Southern Gospel music. Elvis was very religious, but not tied to one faith alone. Priscilla said he was a big reader; a seeker of Truth. Just the other day, I heard Uri Geller talking about the first time he met El, who wanted to see him bend a spoon with his mind!

    He's said to have Melungeons in his family tree. (me too) There's a lot of legends surrounding the Melungeons, all the way and including a lost tribe of Israel. Or descendants of ancient sailing races like the Phoenicians.
    Maybe he wore the Star because he sensed a kinship with Jewish people?

    One thing about it, when you say Elvis, everybody knows exactly who you mean. Not Elvis Jones, or Elvis Williams- the one and only. Gone, never forgotten. Love you E.

    He got me into The Prophet, one of his favorite books among many
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Prophet_(book)

    In 1998, The Wall Street Journal published an article named All Shook Up in the Holy Land exposing Elvis Presley’s Jewish roots. Elvis’ maternal great-great grandmother, Nancy Burdine, was a Jew. Her daughter gave birth to Doll Mansell who gave birth to Gladys Smith who gave birth to Elvis Aaron. According to rabbinic law, which confers Jewish lineage by way of the mother, that makes Elvis Presley Jewish.
    Schmelvis: Searching for the King’s Jewish Roots is a book about the Jewish roots of Elvis Presley.
    The book includes the following discoveries about Elvis’s Jewish background: Elvis always wore a Jewish Chai pendant; he put a Star of David on his mother’s headstone; he spent his teenage years living in a predominantly Jewish Memphis neighborhood; cantorial records may have influenced Elvis’s singing style. According to the authors, Max Wallace and Jonathan Goldstein, Elvis grew up in a Jewish area of Memphis and as a teenager, lived downstairs from a local Rabbi, Alfred Fruchter.
    The Rabbi’s widow, Jeanette Fruchter, recalls; “He was about 15 years old then and we got along so beautifully. He was such a nice boy, such manners. He called my husband Sir Rabbi.”

    MrSunshine,

    Thank you so much for this post! I too love "The Prophet"- my mom had a copy of it and I recall reading it when I was a young teen...will have to look at again!

    In regards to Elvis' Jewish lineage, I will locate and read "Schmelvis" ASAP. I truly had no idea of this history and am fascinated by it! Thanks again for the outstanding and little known information- it is most appreciated!

    Pic of Elvis' grandson, Benjamin Keough: http://photos.elvispresley.com.au/benjamin_keough.html I can see G-Grandma Gladys in him....but why does he have that deadpan look you always see on Lisa Marie? Beautiful people if they'd only smile!

    If you scroll down, there's a picture of him wearing a Star of David and a mezuzah pendant- again the kinship with Jewish tradition, even though Lisa is a Scientologist.

    I've seen the name Burdine in Melungeon family histories....one more group talked about being in the mix, Sephardic Jewish people from Spain.

    I got a Sun Records CD a few days ago and got listening to a song, which I swear its sung by Elvis. The singer is named Charlie Rich, but when you listen to it.....well its more like Elvis' voice to me. Here is the video to the song:

    Yep, he is...

    I'm sorry but Elvis is very much dead, as much as I'd like to believe he pulled off some master escape plan back in '77. Read "The Death of Elvis" by Charles C. Thompson and James P. Cole (if you can find it). It should be required reading for all would be journalists/college students.

    my favorite part of "elvis and me" is when elvis took acid and rode his horse.
    Horses are some strange motherfucks sober i couldnt imagine riding one on acid.

    i met rick stanley before he was elvis' medicine handler and step brother.

    I love the smell of troll in the morning, smells like . . . well not victory . . . more like dead fish and mud . . . but I guess that smells like victory if you've been drowning in a pool of carp.

    I just read that book, and yep, it's does shed light on a lot of things - including the "porno" book he was actually reading in the john when he died - and not some "religious" book.

    Also the detailed description of his autopsy was pretty good. He probably would have been a whole lot more comfortable if he would have had surgery to clean out his impacted colon!

    To understand the living, you got to commune with the dead.

    It is Charlie Rich singing but wow Elvis soundalike or what?
    I believe I read somewhere that Charlie Rich had been an Elvis impersonator before he became popular with his own songs.

    Hmmmm, that is one book on Elvis I have not read.

    I too wished for a short while after his death that it was all a ruse. But I read somewhere that some guy from the funeral home stated HE unequivocally shoved cotton up Elvis' ass during the body preparation. Gosh, I even remember the spread the National Enquirer did showing a "ghost" in the doorway of the little guest house behind Graceland. It was supposed to be Elvis watching all the festivities. Good times......good times........

    Wax Elvis

The link to the photo on the Enquirer front page looks a little more lifelike, but something still just doesn't seem right.

    There has to be someone else who got shots of Elvis in the box who could verify how Elvis looked.
    Haha, people have obviously not done their research! Read what other's have said who were actually AT the funeral. His body looked like it was made of wax and it was "Melting" - Dead people don't sweat! There is a loooong list of "strange" things that happened before, and after Elvis "died."

    He was also more involved in the FBI than anyone knows.

    Peace out!
