Can we please refrain from all the religious references?
HTF do you know Elvis will be in heaven with your God? Why? Just because he gave us great music and brought people happiness? From what I know of Christians, I think they'd say Elvis broke every sin in the book and then some.
And as for the Wests, have you actually read their book? Were you there? The Wests did try to help Elvis get off the drugs, but he rejected them. Charlie Hodge was there for his own interests as much as anyone else in the MM. Probably more - he was incapable of living outside the Elvis world.
Sonny and Red are both loving family men who have raised decent, caring children and have wives who love them after many years. Yeah, sure they're going to Hell!
I don't believe in God, Jesus or Heaven - my belief is that Christianity is the greatest fairytale ever told for the last 2000 years - but I'm sure that religious people would resent your saying that "besides God, Elvis was the greatest entertainer ever to walk the earth".
I am sure Christians don't see God as an entertainer, and I'm pretty sure all the God-botherers say it was Jesus who walked the earth, not God.
"Elvis was human" you say. man, I am sick of hearing that! EVERYONE is or was a human being! What else could he be??
