Priscilla Presley turns to say Hi to Ronnie Tutt during Concert - Elvis Week Fatigue?

  Was it Elvis Week fatigue? This past Elvis Week 2022 during the big concert, Priscilla Presley came on stage with Andy Childs and his band. Priscilla (referring to Elvis' original TCB Band) turns around and says, " I just want to say hello to Ronnie….wow, they're not out here yet. Are they? No! Glen D Hardin is here? And Jerry Scheff is here?" While Andy is shaking his head to confirm. Apparently, Priscilla forgot that Ronnie Tutt passed a way. In October of 2021, Priscilla had posted a photo of herself with Ronnie Tutt and expressed condolences to his family on Instagram. This was the second time Priscilla showed signs of fatigue or memory issues during Elvis Week. Many of us have been to a big anniversary year for Elvis Week. All the running around from event to event, lack of sleep, no time to eat, it can make anyone a little out of it.   On the evening of August 15th, Priscilla Presley stood on stage outside of Elvis Presley's Graceland mansion to spea

Priscilla Presley wishes Elvis Happy Birthday at 45th anniversary of his death

    During last night's candlelight vigil, Priscilla Presley wished Elvis a Happy Birthday. She actually mentioned his birthday 7 times while speaking on the 45th anniversary of his death. If this was a one off, I'd get it. We all misspeak. It's Elvis Week, you're tired. But 7 times? It almost got to the point where she had the crowd singing. Priscilla did ask the crowd to wish him a Happy Birthday and in this short clip, you can hear a handful do so. Very bizarre! I have seen some people blame Scientology . This just is not true. In fact, Scientologists celebrate the birthday, and I mean actual birthday of their leader, L.Ron Hubbard . Not his death date, his actual birthday. Scientologists also in fact have funerals and memorial services for their deceased. It is in no way referred to as a birthday. That's an entirely different religion.   Lastly, Priscilla has never done this in the past.I think she was tired and got confused. We all have been there during a

Elvis Candlelight Livestream filled with Too Much Monkey Business!

Many fans were watching the candlelight service on livestream. And from the start, it became a bizarre event! First, Priscilla Presley referred to it as Elvis' birthday . OK, one time I get it, we are all getting older, tiredness etc. But she referred to this as his birthday many times to the point, I thought she was going to have the crowd sing Happy Birthday Elvis. I kid you not! Seriously! So bizarre!  But she did look great as always. All kidding aside, I get it. We all have been there during a big Elvis Week, you're so tired, you don't make sense! Priscilla, get some rest! You're scaring me!  Next, we get Tom Brown Live from the green screen of the "front lawn" , great to see Tom, ok but that's where we stayed for most of the night . Tom talking and talking and talking about the wonderful new movie, Elvis. Yes, it's wonderful but tonight was not about sales pitches or the wonderful movie. The candlelight service was created BY FANS FOR FANS

Elvis The Movie - My Thoughts

I waited to write this until most of my friends had actually gone to the theater to watch the movie themselves. Before the movie was released, I watched and read little press on this film. I wanted to see it blindly without any sway either way. June 21st, I went to see the film for the first time. It was a small audience for the advanced screening. A quiet and respectful crowd. The minute Austin hit the screen, I had goose bumps from start to finish. Not just because of his uncanny resemblance but his presence, his energy, you could just feel it. This young actor put his heart and soul into learning Elvis in every way. Especially in the way, a truly gifted actor much like a Daniel Day Lewis who becomes his study. Austin isn’t creepy or cheap like most ETAs are thought of. And no disrespect to ETA’s because many are not that. They actually are amazing Elvis fans. But I say this because I see a lot of comments about ETAs and Austin. Please don’t compare these men. Austin is an
