  • Watching this i didn't smile once, i watched and thought about how sad it was the way he went through all the years of the business and to have it all end the way it did.
    I so wish he could have just retired and grew old with the rest of us .

    Rest In Peace.

  • On drugs..prob stoned..he has all the signs...lack of memory...confusion where he is or what he is doing etc....he may be the greatest in many ways but in the end he was the greatest looser!

  • He seems... quite fucked up.

    Heavy is the head I guess.

    EDIT: finished watching, he is VERY fucked up.

    easy to judge, but going from nothing to a world icon must surely carries some extreme pressure and stress, I guess because You realize there is nowhere to go but down, that that it will happen eventually.

  • This will probably piss people off but Elvis was terribly overrated.

    • @TigerMuskie
      That may be caused by amphetamine withdrawal. He obviously had been taking a lot of shit. You can see the build up to it a few moments beforehand, then the brain zap. It can feel like an electric shock in the brain and he may have felt like his brain turned off for a moment. I skipped through parts of this video and only for you saying I would have missed this. Voted you up if I could, thanks.

      I've also seen that reaction when stimulants and depressants are taken simultaneously; the users Central Nervous System is ping-ponging from one drug to the other.

    • @Kermanshah Good eye, made me take another look. You can clearly see he's crowning. By that I mean on the brink between young skinny Elvis, and the Old Fat Sweaty Elvis that died on a toilet, whom we all so fondly remember.

  • I am from Memphis and have lived under this guys shadow all my life. Really, the guy was to rednecks what John Lennon was to hippies. I was 10 years old when he died, and in the next couple of days, thousands if not millions of freaks descended on Memphis. There wasn't a hotel room within 100 miles or so from Mempho. Just amazing. Too bad YouTube wasn't around then.

    Elvis was actually against alcohol, because his father was a drunk, and he would not allow booze in his home or allow his minions More..

    • Elvis also died in the middle of August, which is the HOTTEST, most miserable time of the year in the Memphis.

      Right after he died, Elvis was placed in a masoleum (I actually learned this word because of Elvis, although I probably cannot spell it correctly), and some stupid black guys tried to steal the corpse for ransom!

      Unfortunately, they were caught before they got the body of The King.

      The King of Memphis is now Jerry Lawler. Think of Elvis as a wrestler if you dont know whom I am talkin More..

  • Whoever thinks he is totally out of it on drugs has never seen a man totally out of it on drugs. So he's a bit elevated on whatever. He's fine.

  • Dude was perpetually wasted. Great stories of this guy's house parties. He and his entourage would get severely bent-up then throw some toy boats in the pool and shoot at them with .22 rifles and .410 shotguns.

  • Elvis was not really my type of music at the time, but I recognize that his voice is one of the greatest that has been put on records.....Too bad drugs got the best of him.
