2012

John Lennon’s killer, Mark David Chapman, was denied parole for a seventh time. In a written statement, the parole board wrote: “Despite your positive efforts while incarcerated, your release at this time would greatly undermine respect for the law and tend to trivialize the tragic loss of life which you caused as a result of this heinous, unprovoked, violent, cold and calculated crime.” The 57-year-old Chapman was being held in protective custody at Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum-security prison in Alden, New York.

The Victor Talking Machine Company of Camden, New Jersey began to manufacture a record player they called the Victrola. The hand-cranked unit, with horn cabinet, retailed for $200.

The Wake and Aftermath

1977

1982 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism

1997

The Elvis Presley movie “Jailhouse Rock” was released on DVD.

 

2003 Recording Artist: Daughter Lisa Marie Presley

2004

81 year old Al Dvorin, the announcer who became synonymous with the phrase “Elvis has left the building,” was killed in a car crash on the way home from an Elvis convention in California. He had been asked to announce his now famous words by Col. Tom Parker, who wanted to inform concert goers that Elvis would not return for an encore.

The phrase “Elvis has left the Building” was first used at the end of Elvis’ last Hayride concert, so the audience would leave. The 1970s use created the tradition.

2010 Actor: Granddaughter Riley Keough

2011

Songwriter and producer Jerry Leiber died at his home in Los Angeles at the age of 78 from cardio-pulmonary failure. With Mike Stoller he wrote many hits including: ‘Hound Dog’, ‘Jailhouse Rock’, ‘King Creole’, ‘There Goes My Baby’, ‘Searchin’, ‘Yakety Yak’, ‘Stand By Me’, ‘Poison Ivy,’ and ‘Kansas City’.

2014

John Lennon’s killer, 59-year-old Mark David Chapman, was denied parole by New York State officials for the eighth time. In handing down their decision, the parole board said, “Your release would be incompatible with the welfare of society and would so deprecate the serious nature of the crime as to undermine respect for the law.”

2016

It was reported that pills seized from the home of Prince contained the dangerously powerful synthetic opioid fentanyl but were mislabelled. Officials investigating the artist’s death said the pills were labelled as hydrocodone, a weaker type of opioid. Autopsy results released in June revealed Prince died of an accidental fentanyl overdose.

Billboard magazine reviews Elvis Presley’s “I Forgot To Remember To Forget” by saying, “This (record) is certain to get strong initial exposure. Presley is currently on the best selling charts with ‘Baby Let’s Play House’ and the wide acceptance of this side should ease the way for the new disk.” The song would go on to top the Billboard National Country Music Chart and reach #4 on the Billboard Most Played By Jockeys chart in February, 1956, giving Elvis his first national exposure.

After finishing ‘I Want You, (She’s So Heavy), The Beatles worked on the running order for the Abbey Road album. A preliminary master tape was compiled, the medley was originally slated for side one of the album, and the placement of ‘Octopus’s Garden’ and ‘Oh! Darling’ were reversed from the final version. The album was to end with the slashed guitar chord that finishes ‘I Want You (She’s So Heavy)’. This was the last time all four Beatles were together in Abbey Road studios.

Two Missouri girls were killed and a third was critically injured when a car being driven by drunk 18-year-old Memphis teen,  Treatise Wheeler, with three teen girls in the car, swerved into a crowd of over 2,000 mourners standing in front of Graceland’s music gate at about 4am.

Dragged and killed were Alice Marie Hovatar, Juanita Joanne Johnson while Tammy Baiter was seriously injured.

The driver was charged with drunk driving, leaving the scene of an accident and two counts of second degree murder.

More than 75-thousand mourners surrounded the estate for the funeral service of Elvis Presley at his Graceland estate in Memphis, Tennessee. Florists in the surrounding States were press for flower orders.

All city buildings in Memphis immediately lowered their flags to half-staff. 300 National Guard troops to the area to maintain order

An estimated 30,000 fans were able to pass by Elvis coffin during a Memphis Heat Wave.

The Funeral service was held in Graceland’s living room, and lasted from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Wooddale Church of Christ pastor C.W. Bradley led the sermon, which also featured a testimonial from comedian Jackie Kahane, who often opened Elvis’ shows. Other Elvis tour vets -—J.D. Sumner and the Stamps, the Statesmen, and Kathy Westmoreland — performed some of Elvis’ favorite hymns including “Heavenly Father.”

John Wayne, Caroline Kennedy, Burt Reynolds, James Brown, and George Hamilton.

Kennedy showed up, not on behalf of her family, as Vernon Presley thought, but for Rolling Stone Magazine.

Col Parker had a fight with Vernon over bootleg products and signing a new contract to protect Elvis; Parker wore overly casual clothes, and had declined being a pall bearer.

Then, the motorcade.

An estimated 80,000 people came to watch the funeral procession, lining the street and bearing handmade signs expressing their sorrow for the loss of The King.

To Forest Hills: Presley was entombed in a white marble mausoleum at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis near the grave of his mother, Gladys, but would be re-buried at Graceland the following November at his father’s request, and the City of Memphis re-zoned Graceland for a family graveyard.

Elvis’ burial began with a white hearse followed by seventeen white limousines in a long procession down Elvis Presley Boulevard, ending at Forest Hill Cemetery.

The 900-pound copper coffin was carried by pallbearers Jerry Schilling, Joe Esposito, George Klein, Lamar Fike, Billy Smith, Charlie Hodges, Gene Smith, and Dr. George Nichopoulous.

In the mausoleum, a small service was held, then the paying of respects from family and friends. Elvis’ father Vernon was the last to leave, kissing the coffin and repeating “Daddy will be with you soon.” Elvis was interred at 4:30 p.m. CST.

U.S. President Jimmy Carter issued a statement saying, in part, “Elvis Presley’s death deprives our country of a part of itself. He was unique and irreplaceable. More than 20 years ago, he burst upon the scene with an impact that was unprecedented and will probably never be equaled. His music and his personality, fusing the styles of white country and black rhythm and blues, permanently changed the face of American popular culture. His following was immense and he was a symbol to people the world over, of the vitality, rebelliousness and good humor of his country.”

The suit was settled out of court in January 1994 for somewhere between $5 to $24 million.
