Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 10 Num. 73
("Quid coniuratio est?")
Elvis Presley, the rock and roll star, is probably long since
gone to the "Graceland in the Sky." Some, though, say Elvis
still is alive, or at least did not die when he is supposed to
have. They point to discrepancies in medical examiner reports,
witness testimony, and where the body was found (bathroom vs.
bedroom). (See It's A Conspiracy by Michael Litchfield; ISBN:
1-879682-10-9; see also, The Elvis Files by Gail
Brewer-Giorgio, Shapolsky Publishers, 1990)
Sorry to disappoint Elvis fans, but this editor thinks he's
really dead. But he's still in the news.
- The latest Penthouse magazine (August 1997) carries a "Special
Report" entitled "The Secret Sex Life of Elvis" (by Alanna Nash).
If Elvis is a hero to you, you might not want to read any
further. According to the Penthouse article, "The King" was a
bit unusual in some ways. That does not detract from his being a
great singer; still, any macho image he had is now limping -- and
that's not all that's limp, according to Nash. Reportedly, Elvis
had gone impotent in his final years, due at least in part to
extremely massive intake of narcotics, both uppers and downers.
That is ironic, given the famous picture of Elvis Presley and
Richard Nixon shaking hands in the Oval Office: Elvis was there
to offer help to Nixon in the Ancient-War-On-Drugs. Elvis the
Pelvis, whose "drug protocol," says Nash, "was so intense and
stultifying that often he would get up in the middle of the night
to use the bathroom and never make it back to bed... [He would
wind up in the bathroom,] sprawled on the floor, zonked out and
cruising his own private hemisphere," was also, according to
Litchfield, "an honorary Agent-at-Large of the Drug Enforcement
I hesitate to go further. I will, but with the understanding
that drug addiction can happen to anyone, and, to paraphrase
"Chief Broom" from Ken Kesey's novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's
Nest: "At first Elvis swallowed the drugs; later on, the drugs
Elvis allegedly had a thing for young adolescent girls. Nash
speculates that "The King" was overly attached to his mother and
could not relate normally to mature women; presumably, Presley
sought out very young girls because he felt threatened by women
his own age. As time passed, the rock legend's alleged drug
abuse took an increasing toll: his weight ballooned to 250+
pounds and eager groupies expecting a hot night with the macho
symbol found instead that he was unable to perform sexually. And
here's what else drugs did to Elvis: "Elvis occasionally lost
control of his bladder and bowels, which meant more than one
woman awoke to find a surprise in the bed." (Nash)
So, is Elvis dead? Sure. Drugs do that to you.
- In a separate item, The Spotlight this week (7/14/97) focuses
on a report in The Star (6/26/97) which claims that The "Church"
of Scientology is responsible for reported health and emotional
problems of Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis Presley's daughter. Lisa
Marie Presley, reportedly a member of Scientology, has allegedly
"become totally captured by Scientology" and "anyone who gets too
close [to Ms. Presley] is surrounded by uniformed Scientology
security guards and pressured to move on." (Spotlight) The
Spotlight also quotes from the late Elvis Presley regarding his
opinions on Scientology: "That s.o.b. group -- all they want is
my money." Has Lisa Marie Presley been captured, (a la Howard
Hughes, but by a different gang)? Is Scientology still after
