Tripadvisor rates The Guesthouse @ Graceland before it's even open!



The Guesthouse at Graceland already is a recommended hotel with a 4 star rating from Tripadvisor!


That's BEFORE it's even open!

WTG Graceland!!!!
Still wish there were pictures of Elvis himself in the rooms since it's his money and more importantly his LEGACY that made it all possible! Many people will be a lot richer on the back of Elvis Presley. Show the man some respect with at least one picture of the man in the rooms!

Did Linda Thompson cheat on Elvis Presley with his own band member?


Linda Thompson acknowledges that she was fully aware Elvis Presley was seeing other women during their time together. For years, there has been talk that Linda, herself stepped out on Elvis with his own band member.

In her book, A Little Thing Called Life, Linda dances around the subject quite cleverly. She acknowledges being sick and tired of watching Elvis sleep all day and the cheating. She talks about one day she finally left Elvis sleeping and went out during the day. It was then that she developed a friendship with Elvis' keyboard player, David Briggs.

Linda admits to being attracted to David. But she says they did NOT start dating until AFTER Elvis and her relationship ended.

Although through the years, others have said differently including David Briggs.

Including Larry Geller catching the couple having a candle light dinner at 3 AM!

David Briggs gave an interview to Alanna Nash and said he never thought Elvis would let a woman come between them.

Charming, huh?

See Examples below:

From Elvis Presley Day by Day by Peter Guralnick and Ernst Jorgensen

Monday, November 29, 1976

Cow Palace, San Francisco

Ginger arrives but is confined to her room because Elvis has been unable to persuade Linda to leave.
When Linda finally does depart, it is for the last time. as she soon takes up a relationship with Elvis' keyboard player, David Briggs that has begun several months earlier.


Saturday, January 12, 1977

Sportatorium, Hollywood, Florida

Elvis insists Ginger accompany him on this first tour of the year. This is David Briggs' last tour. 
He has come out on Elvis' insistence., not knowing whether or how much Elvis knows of his relationship with Linda Thompson. but he finds out when Elvis pulls the plug on his  electric keyboard toward the end of the tour.


Baby, Let's Play House Elvis Presley and the women who loved him by Alanna Nash

Exactly who did the leaving is a matter of semantics. Linda logged a few days on the next tour. Elvis' 8th tour of 1976.

But she was already emotionally involved with keyboard player David Briggs, who'd offered a strong shoulder.

Elvis had his suspicions and sent Larry Geller to a restaurant, where he found the couple enjoying a candlelight dinner at 3 AM.

"The band was afraid he was going to shoot me." David remembers.

"I didn't think he would let a woman get between us." David Briggs was interviewed by Alanna for her book.

But Elvis would soon make his feelings clear, pulling the plug on David's electric keyboard one night toward the end of the tour.

Linda's affair broke Elvis' heart says Mindi because he had already been betrayed by Priscilla.

But he never looked at it that he betrayed anybody else. 

He just said, " She's going out with my damn piano player."

Lisa Marie Presley's Ex Michael Lockwood admits to being an addict.......Gretsch Addict, that is!


Lisa made it ALL possible, FOOL!


PART of Michael Lockwood Guitar Collection


More from Lockwood's Collection


Michael Lockwood personal collection


Here's a list (AT END)  of what Lockwood fesses up to along with the photos of HUNDREDS of guitars Lisa must have known of, so just imagine what is hidden in storage that Lisa doesn't know of!!!!

Talk about SELF ENTITLEMENT!  

Elvis Presley HIMSELF did not have this many guitars! 

Gluttony at it's best! 

How dare he!!!! 

Well, the party is over for you, Lockwood.


I think Lisa should get ALL these Guitars and DONATE them to the James Burton Charitable Foundation in her family name.

Let the kids enjoy these instruments!

Elvis' money paid for them. 

It's not like this guy had a job outside of the Presley name. And he certainly won't need ALL these guitars again!

Whether he plays the local dive bar or Elks lodge, HE HAS NO NEED FOR ALL OF THIS!

I hope Lisa's lawyer has been to his site and took note of all of these guitars....if not, I did:)

Geez, I wish the Memphis Mafia was a few years younger, this fool would have learned a lesson had Elvis been alive and he took advantage of his baby girl.

There's a seat waiting for him next to ALL the other SELL OUTS the Presley family has encountered.
