It stayed on the chart for 97 weeks.

Elvis Fan World Shocker: Presley Suicide

Graceland opens vault for Elvis documentary

The Elvis we forgot: film shows star as driven young man

Elvis Presley killed himself’ Ex-wife Priscilla in shock claim

Priscilla Presley says Elvis ‘knew what he was doing’ when he …

New play still acquiring funding to show Elvis‘ ‘Final Hours’

 

Speaking of his deployment in Germany,  Priscilla says in the documentary: ‘They gave them (drugs) to the soldiers over there to keep them awake. He had manoeuvres that he had to do late at night, so the pills were given to the guys and that’s how he started.

‘And if you take a sleeping pill, you have to do something to get yourself awake. He was in uncharted territory, he truly was, and he did this and tried to do this alone.’

Elvis in the US Army

In December, letters from Elvis to his friend and road manager Joe Esposito were discovered.

The two notes hint that the singer was depressed, with the icon saying ‘I’m sick and tired of my life’ and ‘I need a long rest’.

Elvis also admitted he was ’embarrassed [he] can’t kick drugs’ and that he ‘could not recover’ from ‘losing Priscilla’, which was ‘the greatest mistake of my life’.

One of the notes was dated January 1977, seven months before he died.

Rick Stanley, Elvis’ step-brother told Radar Online: ‘The handwritten note appears to be genuine. To me, it’s a clear indication that suicide was on his mind.

It is really not a surprise. Elvis Presley was disappointed with his career, exposed by former employee friends and had nothing to look forward to, and had given up trying for several years. 

Elvis Presley experienced major depression and complicated grief, in a manic life of lurching from one excess of money and sex to the other end of religious purification. Wondering why me, while having wanting to be a singer and wishing there was more substantial he could do than movies and music, and entirely limited to the image he’d created while trying to become famous, and once famous as a unique talent, became contracted into artistic workhorse servitude, raising mediocre material to competence rather than quality material to the artistic limits of his capacity.

Elvis at Home : Hospital on Call ‘Elvis Presley was released from Baptist Hospital at 4am yesterday [April 5] … He decided to keep the [Hospital] rooms reserved … He is feeling fine and looking forward to returning to his personal appearance tours that begin April 21 at Greensboro, NC’. – The Commercial Appeal

 

The book Elvis what happened was published before Elvis died.

After he died, the copies flew off the shelves and a second printing included an additional chapter about the death that the publication of the first edition, contributed to.

Elvis Presley went to the dentist before a tour and whatever the dentist used for the minor dental matter.

Elvis also got drugs by simply removing them from unlocked cupboards that the medical practioners left unlocked

it remains part of the greater doctor shopping and over prescribing addition issue that remains unaddressed today.

Elvis Presley died in 1977, when drug addition was a greater stigma than it is in 2018

but it’s take until 2018 for the EPE Estate to actually address the matter

and perhaps now, they will release the CBC final show and allow Elvis to exist from 1973 to 1977.

Elvis Presley, didn’t die of drugs on the road as so many other music stars did.

Elvis Presley, died at home from drugs, on the bathroom floor, like many people who die at home.

Elvis Presley and Medical Drugs

Elvis Presley was betrayed by many people around him and was known to experience nightmares about going broke and all his friends leaving him.

Presley supported most of his relatives with jobs and was very aware of the value he brought to the American economy. Presley never took a tax deduction either, and helped America pave their highways.

‘NO TRUTH’: Elvis Presley’s ex-fiancee blasts Priscilla over suicide …

Ginger Alden was 19 years old, her book described a very clinically depressed Elvis

Her attempts to soften and rationalize what she saw but did not understand, given her account.

This is why so many families are grief stricken when relatives die from addiction neglect over time or intentional suicide often with more violent means for men – guns, vehicles, suicide by cop, whereas women tend more towards the overdoses, hanging and heads in ovens. It depends on if the person is angry at the world (explode) or them self (implode)

they see but they do not understand, mostly because of not listening or paying the right type of attention.

Noon rehearsals were held each day for three days in preparation for the Vegas opening.

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.

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.

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.

“Hound Dog” b/w “Don’t Be Cruel.” released – it was the first single that the A and B sides races each other up the chart.

 

Within a few weeks “Hound Dog” had risen to #2 on the Pop charts with sales of over one million. Soon after it was overtaken by “Don’t Be Cruel” which took #1 on all three main charts; Pop, Country, and R ‘n’ B.

Don’t Be Cruel” is a song recorded by Elvis Presley and written by Otis Blackwell and Elvis Presley in 1956. By the end of 1956 it had sold in excess of four million copies.[1][3] Billboard ranked it as the No. 2 song for 1956.

It was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002. In 2004, it was listed #197 in Rolling Stone’s list of 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The song is currently ranked as the 173rd greatest song of all time, as well as the sixth best song of 1956, by Acclaimed Music

Between them, both songs remained at #1 on the Pop chart for a run of 11 weeks tying it with the 1950 Anton Karas hit “The Third Man Theme” and the 1951/1952 Johnnie Ray hit “Cry” for the longest stay at number one by a single record from late 1950 onward until 1992’s smash “End of the Road” by Boyz II Men.
