2018 Priscilla Presley confirms that Elvis Presley left a suicide note and intentionally overdosed. On the eve of a tour, not able to face the fans after the publication of “The Bodyguard Book”
as the publisher of The Elvis Bodyguard book,
Murdoch can be considered the person who pushed Elvis Presley into suicide.
Elvis Presley saw Nick Adams as one of the cast of Rebel Without a Cause
they were friends until Nick Adams death in the middle 1960s
Elvis became the biggest living star while Adams fell from movies to TV and eventually, he was one of the first to go to Japan to make Godzilla Movies
what’s left? Bisexuality
Nick Adams – Rebel Without a Cause to American in Godzilla Movies
Nick Adams daughter – published Nick Adams memoir of Elvis, which he would have used the typewriter given to him by James Dean
an item that was missing from the house when Adams body was found.
I have been really curious to get this book, since it might explain a gap in the Elvis cannon.
Elvis having had the rumored affair with Nick Adams makes sense. The James Dean worship and I expect that Elvis – once the terror of girls to the point that they teased each other with taunts of “Elvis likes you”.
it makes sense that sexuality is a multi coded sequence and that expression of same is a product of the nature of nurture and the nurture in the nature.
So Elvis, being a sensualist and an emotive amplifer – makes sense that he would be bisexual – and given the stories shared by the memphis mafia in trying to make Elvis to be the pervert… well. they were the ones doing what he said. it was a group effort.
and every Memphis Mafia member, no matter what lurid stories they did publish always said that there was more they would take to their graves, as if it was not obvious. eh.
Nick and Elvis at the Tupelo Homecoming concert
this expanded paperback oversized edition of The Rebel and the King.
It was smaller than I expected given the size of the hardcover.
The image quality is exceptionally poor and there are a pitiful number in the book, compared the photos taken by Nick Adams – and the matter of the film footage he took of Elvis at the Tupelo concert.
Anyway. it was limited to the 1956 year of Nick Adams’ diary.
Focusing on the Natalie Wood publicity date and the Tupelo Homecoming concert – and nothing less than a sentimental testimonial to the Goodness of Elvis. Including that knowing Elvis had made Nick a better person.
It was a sentimental essay by Nick Adams, who also wrote for gossip and more lurid magazines about his hollywood scene.
this was a well known image of Nick and Elvis from Memphis
It was a more touching story about a daughter coming to grips with her Father, his desperation for fame and how close he came to it.
That he was a capable actor, who went from bit parts to supporting roles, fell from movies to television, then, the Oscar Incident and his final career of Japanese Schlock Horror – which naturally are cult classics.
Nick Adams died of a drug overdose within days of the birth of Lisa Marie to Elvis and Priscilla.
Anyway, the book is low quality printing with spelling errors, and even the cover is a lower quality image than the hardcover.
Recommended for: a very sentimental and unique view into the Audubon Drive Memphis, the home the teenager bought for his parents.
Before becoming too famous and moving out of the City to the estate known as Graceland.
