August 16, 1976

August 16, 1977

12:00 midnight: After his 10:30 pm dentist’s appointment is completed, Elvis and girlfriend Ginger Alden return to Graceland.

Elvis as he enters Graceland in his Stutz Blackhawk around 12:30 a.m. on August 16, 1977

2:15 am: Elvis calls his doctor to request more painkillers, ostensibly because of pain engendered by the dentist trip. Elvis’ stepbrother Ricky Stanley drives to the all-night pharmacy at Baptist Memorial Hospital and returns with six Dilaudid pills.

4:00 am: Elvis wakes up first cousin Billy Smith and his wife, Jo, to request they play a game of racquetball with him. Presley, as usual, plays the game while barely moving, and playfully attempts to hit Billy with the ball. In doing so, Elvis manages to hit himself with his racquet, bruising his leg. The game is called off.

4:30 am: Elvis moves to a nearby piano and performs two unidentified gospel numbers and “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain.”

5:00 am: Elvis decides to turn in early (for him), going up to his bedroom with Ginger. He takes one of the pre-packaged packets of pills created by his doctor for twice-daily use.

7:00 am: Elvis takes a second pack of pills.

8:00 am: Still unable to sleep, Elvis asks for a third packet, which is brought to him by his aunt, Delta Mae Biggs.

9:30 am: Elvis takes the book he’s been reading, Frank Adams’ The Scientific Search For The Face Of Jesus, and goes into his bathroom, “Don’t fall asleep in there,” she says, knowing his propensity to nod off.

“Okay, I won’t,” he says.

Ginger, who Elvis gave a Tylenol 3 tablet, drops back to sleep.

-at some point, Elvis had ice cream and cookies and more Pills, with his Aunt Delta likely being the last person to see him alive.

1:30 pm: Ginger awakens and sees Elvis is still gone. When knocking on the bathroom door produces no reply, she enters and finds his lifeless body on the floor in front of the toilet.

She calls downstairs for help and Nancy Rook, Graceland Maid answers and dispatches Elvis associates Al Strada and Joe Esposito, who arrive in the bathroom and they call the fire department. An ambulance is dispatched. Daughter Lisa Marie and father Vernon arrive in the bathroom, but Lisa Marie is quickly removed from the scene.

 

2:56 pm: Elvis Presley arrives at the Baptist Medical Center in Memphis.

3:00 pm: Elvis is pronounced dead.

4:00 pm: On the steps of Graceland, heartbroken father Vernon Presley tells the assembled reporters: “My son is dead.”

Vernon Presley Talks to the Media – August 16, 1977

His autopsy was performed at 7:00 p.m.  The death was announced as the autopsy was being carried out: The official coroner’s report listed “cardiac arrhythmia” as the cause of Presley’s death, (which only means the heart stopped and not why) but the real cause of death: a cocktail of ten prescribed drugs, taken together in doses no doctor should ever prescribe to a person with terminal illness, which Elvis did not have. The pills he took were for symptom management: pain and sleep mostly, nothing for an actual medical condition.

Romances: Ginger Alden

Also on Memphis Mafia duty during the final hours were Stepbrothers David E. Stanley and Rick Stanley. One delivered pill packs and the other was smoking pot with a pal in the pool table room, off the TV room.

 

The staff of television newsrooms considered Elvis’ death a late-breaking story. There was not enough time for TV reporters who had been sent to Memphis to file stories for the evening news. Executives had to decide quickly what film footage they could use from their files and where to place the story in relation to the other news of the day. NBC-TV not only rewrote their news lineup to lead off with the story of Elvis’ death, but the network also made immediate plans to delay The Tonight Show and put together a late-night news documentary. David Brinkley, a national news anchor for NBC at the time, opened his broadcast with three minutes devoted to Elvis’ sudden death. ABC-TV also decided to lead with the Presley story.

When they learned that NBC would be doing a late-night news special about the significance of Elvis Presley to American music, ABC announced that they would also air a half-hour documentary.

CBS did not follow suit, however. The CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite, featuring the most respected man in broadcasting at that time, had led the news program ratings for more than a decade. CBS executives chose not to open the evening broadcast with the Presley story. Arbitron’s records indicate that when millions of viewers realized this they immediately switched the channel to another network.

The CBS decision not to lead with Elvis’ death gave the CBS Evening News its lowest ratings in years. (For the record, Roger Mudd was substituting for Walter Cronkite that evening.) CBS devoted only 70 seconds to its story on Elvis, placing it after a lengthy segment on the Panama Canal. The producer for that evening’s news was vehemently opposed to leading off with Elvis’ death, in spite of other members of the CBS programming staff suggesting it repeatedly. Interviewed later, the producer agreed that he was out of sync with the national consciousness. Two days later, CBS tried to save face by putting together a documentary on Elvis.

The Beatles held a press conference at the Astor Towers Hotel in Chicago where John Lennon apologized for his remarks published in the London Evening Standard that said The Beatles were “more popular than Jesus now.” After US media brought the story to light, rallies were held all over the country to smash and burn Beatle records. Lennon said later that he was trying to say, “The way they (some fans) carry on, it’s like we’re more popular than Jesus Christ.” Maureen Cleave, the journalist who interviewed Lennon for the original article, tried to come to John’s rescue by saying, “John was certainly not comparing the Beatles to Christ. He was simply observing that, so weak was the state of Christianity, the Beatles was, to many people, better known.”

John explained, “If I had said television is more popular than Jesus, I might have got away with it, but I just happened to be talking to a friend and I used the words “Beatles” as a remote thing, not as what I think – as Beatles, as those other Beatles like other people see us … I’m not saying that we’re better or greater, or comparing us with Jesus Christ as a person or God as a thing or whatever it is. I just said what I said and it was wrong. Or it was taken wrong. And now it’s all this … I never meant it to be a lousy anti-religious thing. I apologize if that will make you happy. I still don’t know quite what I’ve done. I’ve tried to tell you what I did do but if you want me to apologize, if that will make you happy, then okay, I’m sorry.”
