Not that I know off.What do you mean?You read that somewhere?I know that more than once there were threats on his life...but that's all.

I dunno who you're asking the question to but Sonny West has told the story many times of Elvis placing an M-16 machine gun in his (Sonny's) hands and telling him to go blow Mike Stone away. Red reportedly called around and found a guy that would've done it for $10,000.00 but Elvis finally came to his senses and didn't go through with it...but Mike Stone was literally within hours of getting his head blown off all because of Elvis's rampage over Mike taking Priscilla away from him.
that's exactly what all the TV's deserve..
I'm sorry to hear this GirlHappy. . Sending you a hug, I do hope you are o.k., now.
Please remember, though, with regard to Elvis, that there are a lot of lies told, a lot of inconsistencies, stretching the truth, things said to sensationalise and make money, and to cover some peoples' lieing butts. Please don't take what doesn't make sense to you on board as truth. (Perhaps your gut is telling you the truth, not what you are reading or watching, that is why you are uncomfortable with it?).
Elvis also wanted Robert Goulet killed to. I got that on video tape somewhere that Sonny, Lamar, Marty, and Red is talking about that happening. But they talked to Elvis saying you don't want to kill him. Elvis supposely shot at a wall or a door. Can't remember what it was that he shot at right now.
He wanted to kill Mike Stone at different times and not jsut once. Sonny told about four stories and Red told another one. So that makes 5 times Elvis wanted to kill Mike Stone.
In an article called "My Secret Love Affair with Priscilla" Mike Stone claimed that if Elvis did kill him, Stone's underworld connecetions would have killed Elvis. I don't know how true this is, but it would make fascinating reading!!
LOL ..yes Jess, financial part is the only thing that keeps me from shooting TV's aaand PC's..well,at least,a good kick can help sometimes..
the thought of elvis shooting a t.v makes me laugh and the pic of him with the speach bubble was so funnny
I don't like Robert Goulet either. But then again neither does anyone in my family. lol
I have read Elvis also did not like Mel Torme, a singer known as "the Velvet Throat" He was also in one of the Naked Gun movies-another inside joke the Zucker brothers through in to the movie.
We all blow off steam sometimes. Elvis really wasn't all that different from any of us in that regard...except his hot headed moments have gone down in history for all to see... and to be embellished... and added onto over the years with each telling of the tale.
Just think what the ELVIS stories will be like.....100 years from now.
The LEGEND...and legends about him...truly do...live on.
I will never forget you Rosanne.
Yes Joe Car, the point was that Elvis backed off about having Mike Stone killed. Most people would have felt and said the same as he did and thank god most people would have backed off.
There were no innocents in that situation as you stated.......
In the early 90's Goulet appeared as Quentin Hapsburg, opposite Leslie Nielsen, in the comedy The Naked Gun 2?: The Smell of Fear. Priscilla played a part in that movie as well.
Well, about that supposed dark side of Elvis - you may think terrible things, that's the more animalistic side of mankind - but actually doing it is something else. I have often fantasized about doing something to my parents.
In spite of all the things I have read or heard, Elvis hasn't lost his human side. I suppose that if he was raging at someone, it was not by random choice or to feed a 'serial killer kind of obsession'..
About that subject, brought up by the person mentioning Priscilla and rape - first of all, not only females may be victims of abuse; second: Priscilla was not the innocent, na?ve, poor little child but a dragon on it's own.
It's a shame that Elvis' troubles are still the pivotal part in many a discussion, I don't think any of us would like to see our darkest secrets being revealed (now and/or many years after death). So I don't mean we shouldn't talk about it at all, just that we must defend him in some cases and have to avoid being overly judgemental.
