Once again SHAME on all of you who say anything bad about Elvis,Lisa Marie, or Priscilla! Yes Elvis Loved Priscilla but she did not kill him, Yes Lisa Marie is his daughter, No she is not her father nor does she want to be, she is her own person, she does not deny who she is but she wants to be known sd herself not someone else, so will you freaking FAKE FANS leave her and Elvis and Priscilla alone! They have the Papparazi up their butts enough they don't need you people also! now that I have said that I want to thank everyone that continues to defend Lisa, Elvis, and Priscilla as I do! God Bless you all, and as far as everyone else I hope that God blesses you with a BRAIN!!

I don't know that I will buy the book the day it comes out.
But I will buy it. Yes, I read "Elvis and Me". Yes, I tried to read the "bodyguard" and the "Goldman" books, but I couldn't stomach them. Especially the Goldman book. YUCK!

In reply to CEP~~~~why are you so ANGRY?? All of us proud & devoted fans KNOW Elvis used prescription drugs for a very long time, starting with the drugs the Army provided to him right through to his physical problems that gave him a great deal of pain later in life. Does that make Elvis a lesser person, I think not! We all have our deamons that haunt us, Elvis was no different.
Stop & think of all the great people before us that took drugs or drank to ease their physical & emotional pain, do we mock them as cruelly as you & others mock Elvis~~~~
Elvis was & still is a gift from God, unfortunately he did not live long enough to see how much all the love, kindness,generosity & charitable donations he showered on his fellow man has influenced his fans to the extent fan clubs around the WORLD sponser events to raise money for charities that Elvis supported and/or give to other organizations in Elvis' name~~~~~that is the proud legacy of MR. ELVIS PRESLEY!!!
And I haven't even touched on his heavenly voice & the joy, laughter & comfort we are STILL experiencing each & every day when we listen to his music. In closing I want to say to you that I understand your ignorance, it clearly arises out of not being able to see past human frailties, which we all posses, even you, to see the true heart of a fellow human being. My heart is very sad for you in all your anger & judgemental attitude. You see Elvis is all about loving & careing for each other & we as Elvis fans are very proud that we continue to live our lives doing those very same things. And we know he is proud of us all!
By the way, you can bet I'm going to purchase this book & read it cover to cover!

Hi Sean Ryan, I apologise for my manner -of course everyone is entitled to their opinion- mine just happened to be very strong at the time. Unfortunately Elvis did have large amounts of methadone,(liquid heroin) in his body which sadly inhibits the breathing and the heart rate. Elvis had been taking methadone from the mid 60s in various amounts.My point was that we should just face up to Elvis's prodigous drug abuse that was part of his life since 1959 - other singers are seen as heroic for their drug taking, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix etc but maybe Elvis can be used positively to show that it isn't cool- its just a wasting of potential.It just so happens that Elvis's sheer talent pulled him through when he needed it to.

Thanks for the comments Sean Ryan and roytcbintheuk about regarding the book.I could not have put it better myself.I did not want to comment on what cep said because I did not want to hurt anyones feelings.I was not very happy when I read it though.The cover of the book is nice though

i wasnt going to reply to this until i read cep comments all i can say is that this will be a lighthearted affair with short stories and photographs lets face it lisa marie will not have much to say as she was only 9 years old when elvis died and she spent most of her time in LA with her mother also if you can still get a copy i suggest you read "Child Bride" this will tell you the true story of elvis and priscilla relaitionship and as far as linda thompson is concerned elvis was well into prescription drugs when she met him and she knew what she was letting herself in for.
Elvis as you all know contributed to his early death but in the end he had a lot of problems physical and physcological and he felt at the time he needed drugs to help him survive at the end of the day these were not street drugs and they were prescribed by more than one doctor so lets not all blame Dr nick anyway this is going to end up into a rant so i am going to end this here and say true elvis fans know the story over and over so lets just enjoy the music and to be honest i would prefer a good photo book anyday.

Reply to CEP: I find your post quite offensive,not just what you said about Elvis but also to the other fans who are just giving their opinion. You have no right to call anyone stupid when you come out with a comment like 'Elvis used liquid heroin'. Where did you get that information from? Was heroin found in his body after the autopsy report? Elvis was hooked on perscription drugs which led to his death. Also his eating habits and his touring took its toll on his body.
I know an incredible amount of info on his private life so i dont need to buy another book thats gonna go over the same old thing. To be honest, I dont care how Elvis died.Whats important is that we respect him in death and try to keep his memory alive by letting everyone know how talented this man was. That is why i dont see the need to have another book released thats gonna go deeper into his private life just to make even more money.

Priscilla and Lisa sure have the right to tell their story about Elvis. Everybody did! I know Cilla successfully did too a few years ago but Lisa didn't and she might not have without her Mum's help (after all she was a little kid when her father died)? By the way there are many questions that remain open (for instance those who read "The Elvis File" will want to know where Priscilla really was the day Elvis died)... Who knows maybe we'll get a few answers in this book?

I think "Elvis isn't around to give his side of the story" is a ridiculous way of thinking. That means we shouldn't have biographies of Alexander The Great, Julius Caesar, Napoleon, just to name a few...

I know Elvis was no saint.Nobody in the world can claim that title. I just cant understand why Priscilla is writing another book thats all.Surely shes told it all in Elvis and me.In my opinion I dont think Elvis should have got married.He liked the other women to much.He was not the marrying kind was he ? Theres not many men who would turn down a beautiful women if they were throwing themselves at them.I do feel a little bit sorry for Priscilla's partner it must be very hard for him.Having this book come out.I wonder what he thinks of it all ? I did not say Priscilla killed Elvis.I would love to have got inside Elvis' mind to see what he was thinking.Its really sad the way Elvis died.I am sure this book will be a very big seller
CEP (profilecontact) wrote on Feb 14, 2005report abuse
mofacca, how exactly did Priscilla kill Elvis you stupid person. Come on people grow up - Elvis did n't die of a broken heart he died because he was a compulsive drug taker !Elvis's use of prescription drugs and liquid heroin was pathetic.He loved the drugs. The morning after Aloha from Hawaii when he should have been top of the world Linda Thompson found him on the hotel balcony whacked out of his mind because he wanted to.Don't forget whilst Priscilla was with Elvis he was regularly and knowingly unfaithful to her - Priscilla did the only thing she could do - live her own life and bring up Lisa in an environment not awash with drugs and madness.Yes all you stupid fans out there who may feel that Elvis is a family member and you are very protective over him - well thats great - but you did n't have to live with him in the 70s.Even Linda Thompson could n't take it anymore and walked out. If you want to love Elvis fine but get some bloody perspective and stop blaming people like Priscilla when the only one to blame was Elvis himself.
I look forward to reading this book and I'm glad it is being published.And listen you lot if Elvis is being ripped off in your eyes then don't buy any of it and get a reality check.Hey Priscilla and lisa may just be telling the truth which is important from an historical context so all this 'we will only support it if its positive' stuff really is a bit pathetic people.

i look forward to reading the book and watching the special in may. but im a lil disappointed in how they treat elvis. they are all using his name to gain them more money. priscilla killed elvis how the heck can she still live with herself. after reading and watching elvis and me when he begged and pleaded for her to take him back and she turned him down i lost all respect for her. he was gonna give up his career for her and everything but she was cold and that really sent our man into oblivion and not long after he died of a broken heart

don't desreve to have the presley name. You can't be that dementional can you? Then again, I don't know you so. but anyway, and you think you should have his name. I swear a few of you so-called "elvis" fans are getting weirder and weirder

Albert Goldman's book was a piece of crap sheet and Red West & Company's What Hapenned was another piece of chicken sheet garbage. I'm very happy that at long last we have an Elvis definitive book by His beloved family. Looking forward to those rare and unseen Elvis photographs. Thank you EPE for this book. I hope the TV Program ELVIS By The PRESLEY will be available on DVD worldwide so that fans outside USA can also enjoy the program.

My money is on Elvis' music. I wish a publisher would come forward with more stories about Elvis the musician, his approach to recording, arranging a song in the studio (i.e. 1970's, Red West, Separate Ways, etc.)
I enjoy reading Elvis' books like most Elvis admirers.
Then the late Albert Goldman's book arrived on the market. Then there was one book that made me feel. I honestly cannot find the word - that everything graphic was revealed. I believe it was published in 1991 and the title was, Elvis: What Really Happened.
Many readers whom post on this website may have this book in their Elvis libraries. Well, folks, what discouraged me was the details regarding the autopsy performed on Elvis. The medical perspective suggested in this material may be interesting for some and I do not wish to be niave here, but, I realised after reading those passage that nothing about Elvis' private life is sacred.
I will say again though, for what it is worth these days, thanks to Elvis and all those people whom were responsible for delivering the music on stage and in the studio for all of us to enjoy. Elvis and the TCB Band, et al there are many of us here whom appreciated and appreciate when you set aside your personal lives and delivered the energy you invested to entertain us. From me, thanks for those tours of the 1970s, particularily 1976 and 1977. Thanks again readers and ElvisNews for this forum to express my opinion. Happy New Year and Success to All.

Reply to Jazz again: You claim that you want people in the future to see the greatness of this man in music and to know what a beautiful human he was with kindness, thoughtfulness and how beautiful he was inside.Well, you can see all that from his music and his films.You dont need to know every single private fact about him.The amount of love Elvis had to give you can just see that just by looking at him on screen or listening to him sing.

I for one will buy the book the day it comes out. Anything new that will shed some light on Elvis is worth it for me. And this book will be a monster.

So Priscilla has final done what I thought she would ( with a little help from Lisa and co ) Elvis and me part 2. How sad is that always trying to use the king to get more money. Have they not made enough money out of Elvis this year ? They dont deserve to have the Presley name. I agree with you Jim Semple ! I dont think Elvis would have ever written a book like that and told people about there sex life together. He was to kind hearted for that. I think some things should stay private
Jim Semple (profilecontact) wrote on Feb 12, 2005report abuse
I am totally against this book 110%. Why- quite simply, Elvis isn't around to give his side of the story. This book will be heavily biased towards making how great Priscilla and Co are, and what difficult lives they supposedly led. If Elvis wanted a book, he would have wrote plenty before he died. Lets keep some things private please.
Jazz (profilecontact) wrote on Feb 12, 2005report abuse
I think some books with the good and positive about Elvis need to be out there, so that 50 years from now people do not have only the negative about him, but the goodness of Elvis too. I hate the negative about Elvis. I regard him as a family member, and feel very protective of him since I was ten, I have loved him for 28 years now. I want people in the future to be able to see the greatness of this man in music and to know what a great human he was with kindness, thoughtfulness, and how beautiful he was inside and out.

You do have a point, Jazz. We've been burned so many times that it is easy to get jaded by it all. Let's not judge it by it's cover, but --if it is bad, let's not support it. (:

Reply to Jazz: I think what the others are trying to say is that enough is enough of making Elvis's private life public.Can anyone ,regardless of how famous they are, would want every single private thing they do or say, exposed to the world? I dont think anyone would. There are fans who consider Elvis as a friend,a member of the family ,who still wanna protect him even though he is not here anymore and then there are fans who think of Elvis as an object and feel they should be intitled to know everything about him.I think this book is intended for the latter.Sadly, its got dollar signs written all over it and by the two most important people in his life.Yes, it is a shame.
Jazz (profilecontact) wrote on Feb 12, 2005report abuse
Do you guys not think that this book could be positive.. with all the books always dwelling on the negative. there needs to be a book with the positives to balance everything. Please do not judge the book by its cover.

I dig what you're saying, Digger. When Albert Goldman published his nasty biography, ELvis fans did a good job of telling it like it was. Elvis was a very private individual and he would not approve of this kind of tell-all book. Perhaps the CHurch of Scientology has warped the lving Presleys' minds more than we could have imagined. Has anyone considered whether this guy who's bought the Elvis business is also connected to Scientology? Just a thought. Anyhow, Digger, like-minded people like us just need to simply NOT BUY the book, ignore it and hope it goes away. SHame on Elvis' family for betraying his trust and integrity. It's all about the money, isn't it? Personally, ELvis music should be all that matters. There's nothing worse then telling all. Life needs a few mysteries, and not knowing everything about someone is the best way to stay interested in them. On behalf of the sane people on this planet, we're sorry Elvis, and thanks for the memories!

In the 80´s Elvis´ ex-wife wrote the book "Elvis and me". She already has told the world her very private memories. (No limits how intimate a book should be, everything was okay as long as it will sell as much as possible. Private moments should remain private, but okay we all know that money rules the world). What else is she able to tell us now? It´s more than 23 years ago she lived together with Elvis? (Most of the people are not able to tell you exactly, what has happened a year or two ago?!) Lisa was a very litte girl when Elvis died? 2005 will be the year, which will be remembered as the "ULTIMATE Elvis SALE Year" (first the family sold his name, music & movie rights etc. and now the ultimate private-memories will be sold for millions to the world! Nice family!:-) NOTHING is allowed to remain secret as long as it is possible to make money with it...and everyone should think about, how close to reallity a story can be, which happened 20/30/40 years ago from now. To me it´s a shame... :-(
