I do know that Elvis is dead, and he died on August 16th, 1977. End of story.
And no, I wasn't there on that fateful day. I wasn't there at the end of World War 2 either, or September 11 ... but I know ... know ... KNOW Elvis is dead.
Saying that there's even the remotest possibility that he didn't helps to make Elvis fandom a joke in the eyes of the general public! People like Beeny and Major Bill Smith et al have a lot to answer for. And so do the fans who help to perpetuate the myth, even in the smallest of ways.
And I know Elvis was looking forward to his August 1977 tour. Anything else - without evidence provided - is pure speculation!
And I know that Elvis didn't know he was about to die either ...
As for asking to be shown everything ... yes, I'll ask for more info if people post something that I have not heard before. I have not heard of these "two stories" about the tour either, so please enlighten us all.
