Elvis Presley : Receiving the Bing Crosby Award : August 28, 1971

In his dressing room Elvis receives a lifetime achievement award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS). There have only been five previous recipients of the award: Bing Crosby (for whom it has just been renamed), Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and Irving Berlin.

This is one of the few legitimate forms of recognition that Elvis gets from the recording industry during his lifetime – but it is a highly significant one. Photo below, NARAS reps, Bing Crosby’s nephew, Chris with Elvis.

Newspaper Articles > 1976 > August 28, 1976. Houston, TX

Journalist Bob Claypool wrote the often-quoted review about this concert for the Houston Post, in it he said…

Elvis Presley has been breaking hearts for more than 20 years now, and Saturday afternoon in the Summit – in a completely new and unexpected way – he broke mine.
In short, the concert was awful – a depressingly incoherent, amateurish mess served up by a bloated, stumbling and mumbling figure who didn’t act like “The King” of anything, least of all rock ‘n’ roll.”

Double Trouble

August 27, 1967

The Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein was found dead of an apparent drug overdose at his home in Belgravia, London, just a few weeks shy of his 33rd birthday. The Fab Four were in Bangor, North Wales at the time, attending a conference by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The death is ruled accidental and the Maharishi tells the Beatles that Epstein’s death, being in the realm of the physical world, is “not important.” The group would later renounce their association with the Maharishi and Epstein is remembered as being the man who took The Beatles from being a rough looking club act to the most successful band in the world.

A coroner’s inquest concluded that Epstein died from an overdose of the sleeping pill Carbitrol. He also managed several other artists including Gerry & The Pacemakers, Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, Cilla Black and The Remo Four. The first contract between The Beatles and Epstein was auctioned in London in 2008, and was sold for £240,000.

Elvis continued to spend time at the ranch but instead of horseback riding he had found a new hobby: target shooting.

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.
