August 18, 1977

Two Missouri girls were killed and a third was critically injured when a car being driven by drunk 18-year-old Memphis teen,  Treatise Wheeler, with three teen girls in the car, swerved into a crowd of over 2,000 mourners standing in front of Graceland’s music gate at about 4am.

Dragged and killed were Alice Marie Hovatar, Juanita Joanne Johnson while Tammy Baiter was seriously injured.

The driver was charged with drunk driving, leaving the scene of an accident and two counts of second degree murder.

More than 75-thousand mourners surrounded the estate for the funeral service of Elvis Presley at his Graceland estate in Memphis, Tennessee. Florists in the surrounding States were press for flower orders.

All city buildings in Memphis immediately lowered their flags to half-staff. 300 National Guard troops to the area to maintain order

An estimated 30,000 fans were able to pass by Elvis coffin during a Memphis Heat Wave.

The Funeral service was held in Graceland’s living room, and lasted from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Wooddale Church of Christ pastor C.W. Bradley led the sermon, which also featured a testimonial from comedian Jackie Kahane, who often opened Elvis’ shows. Other Elvis tour vets -—J.D. Sumner and the Stamps, the Statesmen, and Kathy Westmoreland — performed some of Elvis’ favorite hymns including “Heavenly Father.”

John Wayne, Caroline Kennedy, Burt Reynolds, James Brown, and George Hamilton.

Kennedy showed up, not on behalf of her family, as Vernon Presley thought, but for Rolling Stone Magazine.

Col Parker had a fight with Vernon over bootleg products and signing a new contract to protect Elvis; Parker wore overly casual clothes, and had declined being a pall bearer.

Then, the motorcade.

An estimated 80,000 people came to watch the funeral procession, lining the street and bearing handmade signs expressing their sorrow for the loss of The King.

To Forest Hills: Presley was entombed in a white marble mausoleum at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis near the grave of his mother, Gladys, but would be re-buried at Graceland the following November at his father’s request, and the City of Memphis re-zoned Graceland for a family graveyard.

Elvis’ burial began with a white hearse followed by seventeen white limousines in a long procession down Elvis Presley Boulevard, ending at Forest Hill Cemetery.

The 900-pound copper coffin was carried by pallbearers Jerry Schilling, Joe Esposito, George Klein, Lamar Fike, Billy Smith, Charlie Hodges, Gene Smith, and Dr. George Nichopoulous.

In the mausoleum, a small service was held, then the paying of respects from family and friends. Elvis’ father Vernon was the last to leave, kissing the coffin and repeating “Daddy will be with you soon.” Elvis was interred at 4:30 p.m. CST.

Fats Domino‘s “I Want to Walk You Home” enters the US record charts, where it will eventually reach the Top Ten. Although Fats would have 18 singles that were million sellers, he never had a number one record.

Four members of The Platters were arrested after a gig in Cincinnati after being found with four 19 year old women, (3 of them white), in various stages of undress. The scandal resulted in radio stations across the US removing Platters records from their playlists.

Five weeks after it entered the Billboard Hot 100, Elvis Presley’s “A Big Hunk Of Love” reached number one.

It seems Elvis was sitting in his “baby blue” limousine after his Thursday night show in Charleston, South Carolina, when a girl reporter for The News and Courier approached his car to take a picture. Apparently, she was after a closeup. She was so close that Elvis was able to stick his head out and bite her hand.

Many girls probably would have enjoyed being bitten by Elvis. This reporter was not one of them. “Hey, you big bruiser, what’s the idea?” she asked him. “You trying to make like Marlon Brando or something.”

“I was only being friendly, like a little puppy dog,” Elvis responded.

The reporter told Elvis it was the first time anyone had ever bitten her as a sign of friendship. “Lady, if you want to get ahead, you gotta be different,” explained Elvis. It was a different era. No lawsuit was filed.

James Brown’s first album, Live at the Apollo, debuted on the pop charts, eventually rising to #2. Despite enormous chart success, he never had a #1 pop album of forty-nine albums hit the pop charts through 1988.  Live would remain his all-time biggest success and would be considered a milestone in the development of live albums for years to come.

Del Shannon‘s cover version of the Beatles’ “From Me To You” became the first song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney to appear on the American charts, where it would stay for four weeks, reaching #77. The Beatles’ rendition climbed only to #116. The title of the song was inspired from a letters column called From You To Us that ran in the popular British music newspaper, The New Musical Express.

Elvis at Graceland

The Wake and Aftermath

 

1982 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism

1985

David Bowie and Mick Jagger recorded a version of the Martha Reeves and the Vandellas 1964 hit ‘Dancing In The Street.’ for the forthcoming Live Aid fundraising event. The single went on to become a No.1 UK hit. The original plan was to perform a track together live, with Bowie performing at Wembley Stadium and Jagger at John F. Kennedy Stadium, until it was realized that the satellite link-up would cause a half-second delay that would make this impossible unless either Bowie or Jagger mimed their contribution, something neither artist was willing to do.

1991

Dionne Warwick, Chaka Khan, En Vogue, Levert, and Dianne Reeves, among others, performed on the Celebrate the Soul of American Music  TV show.

2003 Recording Artist: Daughter Lisa Marie Presley

2010 Actor: Granddaughter Riley Keough

2016

Elvis Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie filed for divorce from her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood, just months after the couple celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary the previous January. Lisa Marie had previously been wed to Danny Keough from 1988 until 1994, Michael Jackson from 1994 to 1999 and to actor Nicolas Cage from 2002 to 2004.

The Sun Records Rockabilly Era

June 9, 1954

The above receipt, dated June 9, 1954, was for a two-sided acetate recording made by Elvis Presley. Sun records studio was originally called Memphis Recording Service opening in January 16 1950

Elvis cut two sides (master 0914-A and 0914-B) on Saturday, 6/5, and picked up his acetate dub on Wednesday, 6/9. This documentation is likely for a song like, perhaps, Casual Love Affair. The flipside is likely another slow country ballad with just Elvis on guitar, i.e. not Without You since Elvis paid for the acetate. The receipt is very similar to the one for I’ll Never Stand in Your Way It Wouldn’t Be the Same Without You

The Military Service Disruption

1958

Johnny Mathis’s Greatest Hits album reached #1. It remained there for what was then a record 490 weeks (almost ten years.)

Sheb Wooley hit the top of the Billboard chart with a novelty song called “The Purple People Eater”. When he first sang the tune for MGM executives, Sheb said he was scraping “the bottom of the barrel”, but the brass loved the song and wanted to release it. Three weeks after it hit store shelves it was the number one record in the US and would start a merchandising craze that included hats, T-shirts and even ice cream.

At the Annex in Hollywood, Pat Boone recorded “If Dreams Came True.”

Jerry Lee Lewis and his producer Sam Phillips take out a full page ad in Billboard magazine to explain his second divorce and third marriage to his 14-year-old second cousin Myra.

The Beatles on the last night of their tour with Roy Orbison, performed at King George’s Hall, Blackburn, Lancashire. They had been the opening act for Orbison, and mid-tour, switched, it was during this tour that The Beatles’ fans started throwing jelly babies at them while they were on stage, after an off-the-cuff remark on television that George Harrison enjoyed eating them. On their early tours in the U.S., they were pelted with much harder jelly beans.

Barbra Streisand sang “When The Sun Comes Out” on CBS-TV’s “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Other performing guests on the program included the McGuire Sisters, Stiller & Meara, and Guy Marks.

June 9, 1964

During an evening session Bob Dylan recorded Mr. Tambourine Man at Columbia Recording Studios in New York City. This was the first session for the Another Side Of Bob Dylan, which saw Dylan recording fourteen original compositions that night. The Byrds later recorded a version of Mr. Tambourine Man that was released as their first single and reached No.1 on both the US & UK Chart. The Byrds’ recording of the song was influential in initiating the musical subgenre of folk-rock, leading many contemporary bands to mimic its fusion of jangly guitars and intellectual lyrics in the wake of the single’s success.

Elvis Presley made entertainment history by performing 4 sold-out shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden. George Harrison, John Lennon, David Bowie, Bob Dylan and Art Garfunkel were among music stars that attended the shows. The shows were recorded and became the album ‘Elvis as recorded at Madison Square Garden’ and eventually “An Afternoon in the Garden” and “Prince from Another Planet”.

Elvis gave a press conference at 4.00 p.m. at the Hilton. Asked about his image as a shy, humble country boy, Elvis responded: ” I don’t know what makes them say that”, and stood up to reveal the International Hotel gold belt under his jacket, with his father proudly beaming beside him.

At the MSG Press Conference, Elvis was asked a number of questions, as funny as the Gold Belt he won as an Attendance recorder setter in Vegas; his resistance to offering a political commentary and his supporting other celebs making different decisions was more riveting

The Wake and Aftermath

1978

The Rolling Stones released Some Girls, their 14th British and 16thAmerican studio album and their first studio album recorded with Ronnie Wood as a full member. The album cover was designed by Peter Corriston and featured The Rolling Stones in garish drag alongside select female celebrities and lingerie ads. The cover immediately ran into trouble when Lucille Ball, Farrah Fawcett, Liza Minnelli (representing her mother Judy Garland), Raquel Welch, and the estate of Marilyn Monroe threatened legal action.

1979

The Bee Gees reached number one in the US for the ninth time with their sixth straight chart topper, “Love You Inside Out”, a #13 hit in the UK.

1982 Elvis Presley Enterprises/Graceland Tourism

 

1984 Actor ExWife: Priscilla Presley

Exactly 25 years to the day after Brian Wilson and The Beach Boys reached number one with “Help Me Rhonda”, his daughters Carnie and Wendy, along with John Phillips’ daughter Chynna – as Wilson Phillips – had the top song in the US with “Hold On”.

1993

What’s Love Got to Do With It?, a film about singer Tina Turner and how she rose to Rock stardom with her husband Ike Turner, opened in US theatres. The film was well received and the stars, Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne, were both nominated for Oscars. Bassett won a Best Actress Golden Globe for her performance as Tina

The U.S. Postal Service, following on the Elvis Stamp sales, debuted its Legends of American Music, Rock and Roll-Rhythm and Blues stamp collection. The set featured Bill Haley, Buddy Holly, Clyde McPhatter, Otis Redding, Ritchie Valens, Dinah Washington, and Elvis Presley. They would eventually do all the music genres.

1997

In Memphis, Carl Perkins entered a hospital to have surgery performed on blocked neck arteries.

1998

The Ronettes finally got their day in court as a judge in the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of New York heard arguments in their lawsuit against Phil Spector. The Ronettes, whose hits included “Be My Baby” and “Walking In The Rain”, charged that the producer breached the group’s 34-year-old contract by paying the members no royalties since 1963. The suit asked for $12 million in damages, rescission of the contract, the return of the masters and recoupment of all monies received by the defendants from the sale of Ronettes masters. Although The Ronettes would win this case, a five-judge panel of the New York State Court of Appeals would overturn the decision in October, 2002, saying that the contract the Ronettes signed with Spector in 1963 was still binding.

2003 Recording Artist: Daughter Lisa Marie Presley

2007

George Michael became the first music artist to perform at the new Wembley Stadium in London when he played the first of two shows at the venue during his ’25 Live Tour’.

Elvis, anxiety, and exorcism: Ex-preacher still looking for apology after being cut out of church

Despite his success singing as “The King,” Bravener said the Elvis act also helped sour his relationship with church leaders in the early 2000s. He said he was then told by the church leadership that he was suffering ‘demonic oppression’. Desperate for relief from his anxiety, Bravener said he agreed to be the subject of an exorcism. He said the attempted demonic expulsion took place at church member Joe Crummey’s home. “‘We renounce! We command you!'” Bravener said members yelled at him. “I didn’t levitate and I didn’t throw up,” he added, “but I felt like I was going to throw up and I was scared to death, I was shaking.”

CBC News requested an interview with Christ Central Church. Mark Rushworth, the current lead pastor, declined the request and said the church didn’t want to discuss the matter publicly. “It’s been addressed before,” Rushworth said over the phone, though Bravener and his son both dispute the claim.
