I think Joe also said Elvis was thinking of taking some time off to get well once all the years commitments we over. Did Dr Nick also say the same thing? I think Larry got tainted with a very heavy brush because in part to his beliefs and in part to the in fighting amongst the MM. I don't believe everything he says just like i don't believe everything any of those close to Elvis say. Not saying they lie just that memory is a perculiar thing. Read a few book by the same MM's and their are slight differances in the same story.
But i do think it's logical that if Elvis was going to take time off it would be Hawaii he would head to after all it's were he went most times to chill.
