The Wake and Aftermath


1982 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism


Olivia Newton-John became a United Nations environmental ambassador.


ABBA’s Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Anderson were invited by U2 to join them onstage at their concert in Stockholm to perform “Dancing Queen.”


The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that people convicted of “hate crimes” could be sentenced to additional punishment.

2003 Recording Artist: Daughter Lisa Marie Presley


The U.S. Congress heard singer Nancy Sinatra’s plea for legislation requiring that all performers – not just songwriters – be compensated when their songs are played on commercial radio.

The American Federation of Musicians filed a federal lawsuit against the producers of American Idol, claiming musicians were underpaid because the show’s ‘live’ music was re-recorded for reruns. The union filed the suit seeking unspecified damages in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, alleging that American Idol Productions Inc. and its subsidiary Tick Tock Productions Inc. violated a collective bargaining agreement.


Cher’s lesbian daughter, Chastity Bono, announced that she would undergo gender reassignment surgery to become a man. Bono underwent female-to-male gender transition and, in May 2010, he legally changed his gender to male and name to Chaz.

2010 Actor: Granddaughter Riley Keough


Lisa Marie Presley, who owns Graceland and a minority stake in Elvis Presley Enterprises, gave her approval for her father’s image to be turned into a hologram, with possible uses that range from a duets album and a TV drama series to appearances at the Graceland mansion in Memphis and perhaps on the road.


A week after getting a Lifetime Country Music Achievement Award,  Jim Ed Brown of The Browns died after a lengthy battle with cancer at the age of 81. The trio, that also included Jim’s sisters Maxine and Bonnie, reached the Billboard Hot 100 with the chart topping “The Three Bells” in 1959 and again in 1960 with “Scarlet Ribbons” and “The Old Lamplighter”. After the group broke up, Jim went on to a career in Country music which landed him in the Country Music Hall Of Fame in 2015.
