Guralnick's 2nd volume focusing on Elvis' decline relied too much on other mistaken sources / assumptions and lacked its own independent original research / inquiry. The end result was the all too common now - expected re-hash of stories / events ................... all done very superficially as well.
I was bitterly disapointed in Guralnick's follow-up volume; a good start, but unfortunately, never finished as it derserves (and as Guralnick is fully capable of).
BTW, .............. a number of those that were there are directly responsible for mistaken MYTH, slight fabrications, and mistaken assumptions that have now become accepted "FACTS" or are destined to forever be items of controversy / seeds of conspiracy / haunting and in some cases with detrimental results to EP's Legacy. Ironically, quite a disservice not only to the fans, but EP himself.
