Elvis, Larry Geller, Colonel Parker discussed on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory
Half a day by one account came in from from Larry Geller so he had to come he had to always push Elvis and push him and push him and. Push him and it was even. In Vegas I mean he'd be there for two months and he worked two shows a night. Sometimes three seven days a week, in an hour and twenty. Five minutes or so and he was the whole show it's not like you're a. Bass player in a band like Aerosmith or. Something or original work if you have an off night. Everybody else can carry you. So he has such a high Sch high energy. Show that he was, so tired by. The time he got off the stage he was about cross eyed and Colonel Parker's just said as long. As we keep doing dates everything will be. Fine well you know the the It started badly Elvis started to be in poor health in one time. In particular he was inundate just before he. Had, had a. Day here to perform a date escapes me anyway I think it was. Saint Louis Saint Louis no I'm sorry it was Louisville was Louisville and it was it was nineteen. Seventy six, Elvis is in bed almost coma toast and he's moaning and Dr neck is trying. To revive him and he's, he's dunking his head, in ice. Water to try, and to try and revive him and this. Is a quote I'm paraphrasing, something you Larry Geller one of Elvis really good friends had, headset in, one video he said that you know. Parker, comes in and labor Geller gets up and he says you know they meet face to face and meal. Larry this great is. Going to see what what is going on here and, you can't let this. Go, on it's human so He walks in. The door closes he's in, in the bedroom talking to Dr and accomplished for a couple, of minutes, he comes out and he tells Larry. Geller, the only thing that matters is it that man is onstage tonight that's the only thing that matters turns. Around walks. Out So this is. What you have on your hands and did Elvis performance night he did he did even his last. Concert is voiced never failed him, and then you look at a guy and you know look it it's easy to. Look at Elvis in the condition he was. In his last concert he here looking at a very sick man. And Elvis had a birth defect in a, twisted colon So you know here's this guy who couldn't this is one. Of the reasons wasn't on a toilet. He hadn't had a bowel? Movement in weeks which is why he was so loaded up and they discovered. That at. The autopsy. So we're starting to get into, the cover up. Which should we go to the country upper yet or, I want. To just touch on one more thing before that. And that is we were talking. About his work with the FBI I wanna talk about operation fountain pen what was that all about Well as I said before in seventy six Elvis, was the biggest tax payer in Tennessee and he, was that was almost filed bankruptcy that year he was really in, is really in a bad financial way so his father had seized. His father had seized his finances trying. To make him solving and He hit a plane Ellis wanted a bigger and. Better plane that's just kind of the way it is you know what I mean all this It was a. Bigger and better sorta. Guy you know he didn't have one. Reunion have five it was like so but. For him so I wish? I could So he had this it was called. Hound dog too he. Named it hound dog to is the Jetstar and. It was one of those first planes and they were selling it in. Nineteen seventy six so he's still own I think channel nine hundred thousand dollars or something some astronomical, amount of. Money and, his father had the same for sale.
