Lamar Fike Back Home

Lamar Fike is now home from hospital but he will be receiving further sessions of chemotherapy on an outpatient basis according to Marty Lacker to the Elvis Express. "I am really pleased and overjoyed to report that Lamar is having no adverse reactions to the chemotherapy so far, as a matter of fact he is surprising the doctors and those of us close to him."

Please Elvis fans can we not keep attacking each other over Lamar Fike.Is he really worth it ? I am not very fond of him either.

It's a sad indictment of the Elvis 'world' that so many people are so lacking in their own thought that they seem to have to live vicariously through Elvis. '..he WAS a friend ...'. It is simply unbelievale an adult can promote this as it being meaningful in general or meaningfull to the dabate - it's neither. Nor is it suggest that Fike deserves anything because of it. And, no he's not a 'decent bloke'. Not by any metric.
Not once did I say I would sue - I merely said his comments were libellous, which they are. As Elvisnews is 'published' in Europe, his comments also mean they are liable for libel. So would I sue out of the options? Hmm , not difficult....I could co-respond but to sue a ditch digger wouldn't exactly get me very far now would it?

Interesting. Not Techy's normal high standard of riposte. Ok, so maybe Crawfish was a bit over the top with a personal attack but to threaten someone for libel is just as bad. Had a bad week?

Are you really questioning that I am a solicitor with the question mark? Well given the tone, I would consider this libellous. To state that I am 'pretty sick' is also libellous. Not very wise on a site like this given that ElvisNews is also now liable for your libel... Not very bright are you. And, no, not a personal attack, a fact...Nor indeed libellous. Being a 100% genuine real solicitor I know the difference. I can only guess you dig ditches for a living...

The Solicitor? (Techy)whilst he has a valid point, ruins it for himself in being so vindictive and twisted. When a human being can write such vile stuff, as wanting them to come out in a wooden box, then to me he loses ALL credibility. So an own goal there Techy. You are so sure you are right and those of us that wish Lamar well are wrong, proves your head is not where it should be!! and I don't think a heart even exists. Anyone who wishes someone dead is pretty sick; and should be locked up for all of our good. Lamar is a decent bloke and, having made mistakes has to live with them and the knowledge of how upset fans were/are, but he WAS a friend of Elvis' and whilst that doesn't mean he can or should get away with everything, who are we and in particular you, to judge. NONE of us know what it was like truly day by day, but I truly wish Lamar well and am sure he will beat this rotten disease ... and come back and kick your butt!

techy_viola like I said I don't wanna judge Lamar as I never met the guy. I have enough experience in life to realize that some of them guys around Elvis hit it hard after he died and I agree with you on that : their love for Elvis is in many ways mixed up with bitterness and resentment because of Elvis leaving them abruptly and forcing them into emergency landing in the real world. But again what shocked me was that wish of yours to have Lamar come out of the hospital in a coffin. I wasn't there to watch the picture but why would Elvis keep Lamar around him for over 20 years if he hated him? Lamar seems to have that special vision of his and sometimes it obviously doesn't fit reality or matches facts... on Lamar's discharge Elvis would often play with it putting on all kinds of hoaxes and laughing his ass off at Lamar's reaction to it. On another hand Lamar is no dumb and I wouln't bet on his being all wrong in his summary statements of the situation all the time. Overall I may disagree with him, get mad at him sometimes, but I sure don't wish him harm.

I think we do know enough about Elvis to know that he had enough humanity in him not to wish that another human being would die of cancer. No doubt I will be accused of writing "drivel" again by a certain contributer to this page, that word seems to be very popular in their vocabulary, when opinions differ. It's a good job that we do all differ in opinions, I certainly would not want be wishing that Lamar Fike would suffer further from this awful disease.

Boris, dear oh dear. Yet another trying to second guess Elvis' view on things. At least it addresses my previous question. Some of you guys can't think for yourselves. Aren't you embarrassed making such ridiculous statements. You should be... '...he loved the guy, no doubt about it...' Based upon what exactly? Please read my previous comments about Fike relating to the discussion about his diagnosis. As for Elvis ' permanently connected phone line, this was because Fike was having liposuction. An operation Elvis paid for, supposedly, on the basis he was considering having the operation himself. Hence, the interest in the treatment and recuperation.
Looks like I need to repeat again, just so it sinks in for some people. The animosity towards Fike is not solely based upon his involvement with Goldman but upon 28 continuous years of disloyalty, bitterness, betrayal and disregard for someone he calls a 'friend', and, indeed, his friend's family, reputation and dignity. Why are you not shocked at that rather than my comments!!
boris (profilecontact) wrote on Apr 18, 2005report abuse
I'm pretty shocked! I wouln't wish my worst enemy to come out of the hospital in a wooden box! I don't wanna put any judgement on Lamar as I don't know him personally but I sure don't wish him to die! The book with Goldman was made to make money and the concept was to build the book on a "witness for the prosecution's" way : the more you charge Elvis, the bigger the scandal , the more medias you get and the more money in the end... everything was used and abused to win the case... It doesn't mean that those who'd speak were telling lies, it means that the way Goldman used and told it made it sound quite different sometimes... even Sonny West (although co-writer of "Elvis what happened") was shocked when reading his supposedly reported statements... that tells you something! Now these guys might have kept their mouth shut... but they had been dealing with keeping a heavy secret for so long and now they are facing so many lies so many stories that never were and some of these guys, I believe, were truly trying to get the whole scene closer to reality... the pressure was high and had always been... Who are we to judge them? Remember that thing about walking in that man's shoes? No matter what Lamar was around Elvis for more than 20 years and though Elvis got mad at him so many times and was going to get rid of him by the time he died he loved the guy, no doubt about it... Oh by the way the last time Lamar was in a hospital for sickness treatement Elvis had a special "always connected" phone line put on between Graceland and the hospital so he would know 24 hours a day what was going on with his friend... and of course he paid for everything!

Well said Leroy.

First of all I would like to apologize for my fellow Elvis fans who do not understand any humanity. In their opinion Lamar Fike did something terrible more than twenty years ago. If Lamar did, isn't it time to forgive? Elvis would have... All those hostile posts tells me more about those who did post it than about Lamar. I’m glad he’s doing better and I hope he will fully recover. Every person makes mistakes and I’m sure he took the consequences. Let’s not live in the past.
Get well, Lamar!!

and you would have a clue would you, i see the solicitor is coming out in you again. let people have there opinion without you putting your (i know what i am talking about and you don,t nose in)
Techy_Viola (profilecontact) wrote on Apr 17, 2005report abuse
Yet another 'Elvis would/wouldn't...' Oh, the tedium and crassness of it. As I've said before, no one has a clue what Elvis would or wouldn't have thought about anything. Can some of you guys not actually think for yourselves? To me, that Fike has been discharged from hospital is bad news all round. I was hoping it would be leaving in a big wooden box....

goldman was right in some and in a lot of cases . elvis wasnt perfect and anyway if you add all this in the book together it probably only a couple of hours in elvis life .
