After the free "Loving You" DVD and positive magazine in last weekend UK's Daily Mail newspaper most fans were enthousiastic. Following the DVD the newspaper would run a five part series.
According to Elvis Express the newspaper could not follow through on the good start from the weekend. "we feel the paper would be best left for wrapping fish and chips".
From the Elvis Express:
After all, when a major investigation gets a simple thing like how many UK number ones Elvis has had, wrong! (Mr Jones claims 18 - but the fact is Mr. Jones it is 21) what credibility can be given to the rest of the investigation?
I thought that Doctor Who had whisked me away in the Tardis and we had arrived in the 1980's to once again be surrounded by tabloid trash with bold text sub-titles like: He spied on female guests as they undressed and He was reading raunchy porn, the later refers to Ginger Alden saying that Elvis was reading a book about the Turin Shroud when he died! But according to Dr. Dan Worlick, who led the inquiry into his death, Elvis was reading a raunchy and hardcore pornographic book when he died?
There are several excerpts from Albert Goldmans two books about Elvis and Mr. Jones has enlisted the services of Patsy Presley Gambill, George Nichopolous, Marty Lacker, Gordon Stoker, Charlie Hodge and Joe Esposito.
Here we are in 2006 and once again, instead of the media starting to take a serious look into the music and influence that Elvis Presley brought to the 20th Century, we have taken one giant step backwards thanks to a man named "Reporter of the year" who has written nothing more than a re-worked piece of sensationalist tabloid crap.
The way David Jones describes Elvis in his last year really highlights the compassion and understanding that he has obviously not grasped during his investigation... He describes Elvis as a "Bloated Freak Show".
