    Now we know the truth.......

    Nowdays we all know about Elvis' bad overdose just a few days after his divorce from Priscilla was finalized.....this is from the Dallas paper that same week. Of course I rushed out and sent him a card, and a couple of weeks later I got a thank-you note!

    Why on earth are you blaming the media here?

    Who do you think told them about the "pneumonia"?

    Elvis' camp, that's who! They are the liars in this case, not the newspaper.

    Re: Now we know the truth.......

    I'm going to post this and ya'll will probably boot me off the forum, but here goes

    1. There is a possibility there was some truth to the pneumonia story. If he aspirated during the overdose, it could have turned to pneumonia.

    2. Why do "we" have to know the truth? Who are "we"? So "we" bought tickets and albums, did that entitle us to his life and his soul? Frankly, it was none of our business. Maybe we should start a thread called "all our faults and problems" and see how we like having our lives discussed to pieces. Let's get those divorces and affairs up there for everyone to see.

    3. "We" complain about the press harping on his drug use and not his musical abilities or his talents and "we" bring the drug subject up just as much as they do. If we can't let it go (and we claim to love him) how do we expect the press(who could care less about him) to let it go. Seems "we" are as guilty as everyone else.

    I have to agree with CritterGitter's post as well. I'm pretty well burned out on all the muck that's brought out about Elvis. And it is true, pneumonia may very well been a part of it.

    Re: Now we know the truth.......

    I agree with what you said CRITTERGITTER but the thread was not meant to bring up Elvis' drug use. It was just a newspaper article that Rosanne was nice enough to share. It just shows us how the media covered Elvis' life when he was alive. We just made some light hearted humor about the whole thing but some people decided to come on and turn into a serious issue.
    Some of us just enjoy being on with our friends and we try to give each other something to smile about!

    Great post CRITTERGRITTER. You're so right, but most people think because someone is in the public eye that every move they make should be in the paper...

    Whatever happened to privacy?

    Re: Now we know the truth.......

    Sorry, it might be just me, but I am totally missing the humor of this thread. The posts are about the press covering up Elvis' drug use. I think that pretty well is bringing it up. If that makes you smile, you go for it.

    Now if you want to talk about his voice, his smile, his hair, his butt.....call me, I'll be grinning from ear to ear.

    Re: Now we know the truth.......

    I was really enjoying these last few threads that Rosanne was putting on about old Elvis articles and things from the seventies. I thought it was finally a break from some of the serious stuff that was going on here lately.But I guess I was wrong.

    Sorry, if you are referring to me and Elvis' drug abuse making me smile then you are wrong. I never dwell on his few faults, everyone of us have faults of our own. There is nobody who can tell me all the good he did in his life. I know all about his good looks, his voice, his smile, his hair and yes, even his butt. Elvis means the world to me and he has all my life. I would stand up to anyone to defend him. I would never ever want anyone to think that I would do anything to hurt him or his memory. Elvis is a part of who I am and I am one of his biggest most loyal fans.
