Has Elvis Presleys' Legacy... Left the Building?
Elvis' Last Words Revealed

By some statics it seems that interest in Elvis Presley is on the decline. It would make sense given that there are fewer fans have firsthand memories of the King of Rock ‘n Roll in action. Yet some say the notion that Elvis interest is dying is nonsense.

A recent article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal claimed that interest in Elvis Presley, at least in VEGAS is in recline. One Wedding Planner revealed that... " The whole Elvisy Vegas red carpet thing is, in my opinion, going out the door."  Wedding coordinator for the Mon Bel Ami chapel claims... "That whole era is getting older. Almost all of our older renewals want an Elvis wedding. Our younger brides do not want cheesy, flashy, Elvis Vegas. They want something nice in their budget."

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority could not offer any statistics testifying to Elvis interest among tourists, but noted that the Elvis-a-Rama Museum closed several years ago and the “Viva Elvis” Cirque du Soleil show was replaced last year. According to the Las Vegas Sun, “Viva Elvis” was the first show that the Cirque troupe was ever asked to replace; host MGM Resorts made the request due to poor ticket sales.

Every August, fans pay tribute to the King with a candlelight vigil on the anniversary of his death, and this year, police estimated attendance at around 35,000. That’s a sharp falloff from the previous year’s vigil, which attracted 75,000 fans—and 500 people touring the mansion every hour—according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal. The fact that 2012 marked a nice round number for the anniversary (35 years) seemed to have a lot to do with the phenomenal crowd size. Indeed, the big anniversaries regularly draw more and more vigil attendees—35,000 on the 25th anniversary (when it rained), and closer to 50,000 on the 30th.

The theory that interest in Elvis is fading due to an aging fan base is also silly, according to EPE, which estimates that 30% of both Graceland visitors and the nine million Elvis Presley Facebook fans are under the age of 35.

elvispresleynews.com strongly refutes this assumption.  The facts speak for themselves!

Elvis Death - Elvis Presley Death - Elvis Presley Died 16 August 1977

Elvis Presley died on 16 August 1977 at his home Graceland in Memphis. His body was found by girlfriend, Ginger Alden  in the upstairs bathroom. Ginger  summoned Joe Esposito & Al Strada and Dr Nick. All efforts to revive Elvis were futile.  Elvis had probably been dead for many hours by the time his body was found.  Elvis had not gone to bed at his customary time, between six and seven am. At about 2.30pm the Memphis Fire Department rescue unit arrive at Graceland who rush seven mile to the Baptist Memorial Hospital. Elvis was pronounced "dead on arrival" after an 30 minute attempted cardiopulmonary resuscitation. He was pronounced clinically dead at on the steps of the Baptist Hospital, Memphis. Elvis Aaron Presley was pronounced dead at 3.30pm on the 16 August 1977 by his physician, Dr. George Nichopoulos

Dr Francisco, chief medical examiner of Shelby County conducted the three-hour autopsy on Elvis upon Vernon Presley's request. Dr Francisco ruled Elvis died as a result of coronary arrhythmia (an irregular beating of the heart resulting from myocardial infarction) Elvis real "cause of death"  revealed more than originally reported to the media is a bid to retain Elvis Presley reputation as the King of Rock n Roll 

The month of August turns Elvis fans thoughts and prayers to the death of Elvis Presley. Thousands commemorate Elvis Presley Death by making the pilgrimage to Memphis to pay their respects at Elvis' Graceland graveside. Many fan clubs organize events to remember the life and times of their idol. Others, like myself, will play their favorite Elvis CD and reflect. Millions will watch the vigil live on Graceland's cam.
