Merry Christmas!

David Letterman says it's not Christmas until Darlene Love sings this song in NYC. Well, I had the honor of seeing Darlene perform earlier this month at the Million Dollar Quartet Broadway show. And I wanted to share this with you. I also had the honor of seeing Darlene rehearse before the show and met her after the show where I talked to her about recording with Elvis, Memphis, her induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame and many other subjects and I will be bringing you that complete story after the holidays. So I guess it's Christmas my friends! I hope Santa is very good to all of you! And please be safe traveling during this holiday season! We'll have a few new stories this holiday weekend and we'll revisit some previous stories as well. I will be away celebrating the holiday with my family and will be back with more news and exclusives on Monday! I look forward to seeing many of you in Memphis very soon! Merry Christmas Friends!

New York's super Elvis fan Jackie DeMarco has beautifully decorated her Christmas tree entirely with Elvis ornaments and decorations. It's one of the most beautiful trees I have ever seen and I asked Jackie if I could share it with all of you! Merry Christmas!

Elvis Still Rocks Vegas According To Priscilla Presley

Why Elvis would like Viva: "Knowing Elvis, who loved entertainment of all kinds, the fact that the show is on the Strip in Las Vegas, where he loved to perform, where his presence is, I think he'd be very honored," Presley says. The two were married there in 1967. Her influence on the show: "The big deal for me is that his style, his singing, his voice all comes from gospel, so they're adding a little more of that to give you more of a journey." Priscilla's favorite Elvis song: Bridge Over Troubled Water. "We were in Vegas when the horse he had gifted me passed away. He sang that song to me. Every time I hear it, that's what I think of." Least favorite Elvis song: "The movie songs. They were certainly not him." What we still might not know about Elvis: He admired other entertainers and wasn't threatened by their coming to Vegas. "Elvis always felt there was room for everyone. Tom Jones, Cher, Nancy Sinatra

Myrna Smith Is Now In Hospice Care

Dear All: This is a hard Email for me to write.  Myrna is still in the hospital & I found out last night that hospice has been brought in.  This means that dialysis treatments have been stopped and no other life support procedures will be implemented.  I visited Myrna last night, it is very hard indeed to see her like this.  But, I do believe this is what is best for Myrna, because for some time now she has been existing (not living), & she has been getting progressively worse.  I will do my best to keep you updated.  Please keep Myrna in your prayers. Please Note: (i) Please don't send cards or mail to Myrna at the Canyon Oaks Center address at this time.  Myrna's friend Diane will pick up the mail accumulated there & we will read it to Myrna.  (ii) At this time, I don't know what Myrna's immediate financial needs will be, so you may want to hold off sending checks to Myrna's account at Premier America Credit Union until I know & can inform you.
