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 Military Service Disruption

 

August 8, 1958

All through the summer Gladys had been feeling ill and Elvis finally relented/insisted that something be done about it. He put his parents on a train to Memphis so that his mother could see her personal physician. Gladys was an alcoholic and deeply depressed about Elvis’s celebrity and military careers; she was not doing well in the Texas climate, or coping with the rags to riches social stratosphere; the measure of her son’s love, he had done it all for her.

Elvis would have to threaten to go AWOL to gain the leave that would have been granted to any regular solider to follow his parents back to Memphis.

Military service at Fort Hood in Texas., for Advanced Tank Training as part of the Second Armored Division. He was stationed there for six months.

The Hollywood Decade/The Elvis Establishment

1960

England’s Decca Records scrapped 25,000 copies of Ray Peterson’s “Tell Laura I Lover Her” because they felt the song, which recounts the last thoughts of a teenager dying from a car accident, was “too tasteless and vulgar.” A rival record company felt differently and recorded a cover version by a singer named Ricky Valance, which went to number one on the British chart. In the US, Peterson’s version reached number seven on the Billboard Pop chart.

Flaming Star  Elvis recorded four songs at Radio Recorders for Flaming Star between 8.00 p.m. and 4.00 a.m. Elvis was embarrassed by the material.

August 8, 1961

Britain’s Lonnie Donegan has his biggest hit in the US when the novelty tune “Does You’re Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour On The Bedpost Overnight” reaches number 5.

Elvis Presley released the single “(Marie’s The Name) His Latest Flame” b/w “Little Sister.” The relatively intense tune, featuring a Bo Diddley beat, performed well on both pop and easy listening stations, reaching No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 2 on the Easy Listening chart, based (at the time) on the Top 100. However, the single’s Hot 100 chart run was atypical of a Top Ten hit. In the autumn of 1961 it shot from 22 to 4, then dropped to 10, then 26, all within the space of four weeks. The single (a double A-side with “Little Sister“, as in the States) spent four weeks at No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart — one of Presley’s nine UK chart-toppers between 1960 and 1962.

August 8, 1963

The Searchers were at No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘Sweets For My Sweet’, the group’s first of three UK No.1’s. The song was written by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman and was originally recorded by The Drifters.

The Beatles arrived in Guernsey in The Channel Islands, where they played two shows at Candie Gardens. They arrived in a 12-seater plane after making the 30 mile trip from Jersey, (their equipment was sent over by ferry). The Beatles would receive the sum of £1000 (approx.$1,600) for the two shows.

Viva Las Vegas

Romances: Ann-Margaret

August 8, 1964

A single by The Young World Singers called “Ringo For President” was released in the US. Ringo Starr comments: ‘I don’t believe I will have the time.’ Such was The Beatles drummer appeal that fans launched a “Ringo for President” campaign in the midst of the Johnson/Goldwater race. A well-organized contingent – most of whose members were below the voting age of 21 – banded together to enter the drummer as a third-party write-in candidate for Commander in Chief.

“House of the Rising Sun” by The Animals is released in America. Although the band would put 14 songs in the Top 40, this will be their only US number one. It was reported that the song was recorded in just one take and the band was actually in the studio for less than ten minutes.

The soundtrack to the Elvis Presley movie “Kissin’ Cousins” hit #5 in the U.K.

Girl Happy

Six shots were captured by photographer Iain Macmillan, and the session was completed in less than ten minutes.

1992

Madonna went to No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘This Used To Be My Playground’. A No.3 hit in the UK, the track was taken from the film ‘A League Of Their Own.’

A riot broke out during a Guns N’ Roses and Metallica gig at Montreal stadium when Metallica’s show was cut short after singer James Hetfield was injured by pyrotechnics. Guns N’ Roses took the stage but frontman Axl Rose claimed that his throat hurt, causing the band to leave the stage early. The cancellation led to a riot by the audience who overturned cars, smashed windows, looted local stores and set fires.

1996

KISS appeared at the Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati, Ohio on their 192 date Alive World Tour. During this show a fan threw his fake leg on stage, which all the members signed and handed back to him.

1998

The Spice Girls had the UK No.1 single with ‘Viva Forever’, their 7th UK chart topper. Brandy and Monica were at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘The Boy Is Mine’.

Two of the jurors who voted to acquit Michael Jackson of child molestation and other charges said on NBC’s Today show that they now regret their decisions.

2006

Janet Jackson appeared on the cover of Vibe magazine wearing nothing but a skimpy bikini bottom and a necklace made of large shells. The 40-year-old singer had recently lost about 60 pounds.

2007

The US National Musical Publishers’ Association joined other businesses in seeking to sue YouTube claiming songwriters were not being properly compensated when their music appeared on the site.

John Lennon’s killer, Mark David Chapman, had his parole hearing delayed until early September so that officials could gather additional information. The 55-year-old Chapman became eligible for parole in 2000 after serving 20 years, but had been denied his freedom five times.

Ted Kowalski, a member of the Canadian quartet The Diamonds, died of heart disease at the age of 79. The vocal group had a string of hits in the late 1950s including “Little Darlin’”, “Silhouettes” and “The Stroll”.

2012

The members of Motley Crue and KISS announced that they would donate $100,000 to support those affected by the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shootings where 12 people were killed and 58 were injured. The musicians hoped that their gesture will encourage others to give.

2016

The judge overseeing Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway To Heaven’ trial ruled against the band and their publishing company’s attempts to recoup nearly $800,000 in legal fees. While a federal jury determined that Led Zeppelin were not guilty of plagiarizing Spirit’s ‘Taurus’ in a copyright infringement trial, judge R. Gary Klausner ruled that, since the lawsuit itself was not frivolous and meritless, the estate of Spirit guitarist Randy (California) Wolfe and their attorney Francis Malofiy were not obligated to repay the defendants’ legal fees.

2017

American singer, guitarist, songwriter, television host, and actor Glen Campbell died in Nashville, Tennessee at the age of 81.

August 7, 1934…The U.S. Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling that struck down the government’s ban on the James Joyce novel “Ulysses.” At issue was whether or not the novel was obscene.

On this new disk he comes thru with a solid performance on an r. & b.-type tune and then on the flip side does another fine job with a country ditty. A strong new talent.”

Elvis Presley performed at the Eagle’s Nest, in Memphis Tennessee, (the first of 12 shows at the venue in this year). The advertisement in the local paper read; ‘See and hear Elvis singing That’s All Right and The Blue Moon of Kentucky.’

Elvis Presley Letters from Omaha in 1956 – Elvis History Blog

Marjorie Howe’s concert review, published in theJournal on May 24, 1956. The headline read, “Teenagers Like Presley’s Antics—But Others Do Not!” Miss Howe clearly was in the latter group. “His performance was the most disgusting exhibition this reporter has ever seen,” she declared. “Elvis Presley is the male counterpart of a hoochee-koochee dancer in a burlesque show. The writhing goes on while Presley is singing Blue Suede Shoes or Hound Dog, but his frenzied singing and guitar strumming are only incidental to the act. In fact, the singing can barely be heard above the crowd noise for every paroxysm brings a fresh outbreak of shrieks from the audience.”

Howe took time off from her criticism of Elvis’s act to censure the singer’s appearance. “He has a sulkey look and his infrequent smile is almost surly,” she observed. She added (Elvis fans, take a deep breath now), “He wears long sideburns and is beginning to get fat.”
