Elvis, Larry Geller, Colonel Parker discussed on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory
Nineteen sixty nine he was. Gambling a million and a half a day by one account came in. From from Larry Geller so he. Had to come he had to always push all this and pushing and pushing and pushing 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 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 drummer, where if you have an off night everybody else. Can carry you so Oh he is 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. Uh It started to end badly Elvis started to be in poor health in one, time in particular he was inundate just before he had he. Had to, perform a. Date and escapes me 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 and Elvis is in bed almost comatose 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 try and revive him and this is. A quote I'm paraphrasing something you Larry Geller one of Elvis is really good friends had had in. One in a video he said. That, you know Parker comes in. And Larry Geller gets up and he says you. Know they meet face to face and will. Larry this great he's going to see. What what is going on here and you can't let, this go on human. So, he walks, in the, door Closes he's in in bedroom talking to Dr and accomplice, for a, couple of minutes he comes out and he tells Larry. Geller the only thing that matters is it that man is onstage to tonight that's the only thing. That matters turns around walks out So this is what you. Have on your hands and did Elvis perform, at night He did He did even his last concert, is voice never failed him and 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 you you're looking at a very sick man and Elvis had a. Birth defect he had a. Twisted colon so, you know here's this guy. Who couldn't this is one of the reasons he 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 wanna 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 I was almost filed bankruptcy that year he was really in, is really in a bad financial way so his father had seized. His his father had seized his finances. Trying to make him solvent And He hit a. Plane Ellis wanted a bigger and better. Plane that's just kinda the way it. Is you, know I, mean this was a bigger and, better sorta. Guy you, know he didn't have one ring to have. Five it was all this stuff for. Him so who's? Actually 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. Load I think channel nine hundred thousand dollars or..
