Today we're going to combine an episode of five favorites with a studio gas well, not in the studio on zoom? Resuming. With Harold Cherokee, he's got a great book called stolen moments. How many years Herald were in La is a seem to time I was born in La so in La for sixty three years. Only been back here for three years moved back here three years ago. where. Were you living before? While I was living in the San Fernando Valley in Sherman Oaks. Dan Is area that you. which is just just over the hill to Hollywood, which is about fifteen minutes from where I live great place to be mad that close you know was wonderful. As a kid growing up there, where did you live and how did you first start plugging into the whole strip in the scene and everything that was going on there? I was born in L. A. Downtown La but then as a kid. Moved to Glendale California which is just right. Next door. They're nice sleepy little town and I basically grew up there went to high school there the whole bit and was there up until like nine hundred ninety and that I but I moved to the valley when I got married a second time and Just. been there all my life and. I was well connected when I was a kid started going to concerts when I was twelve. I concert was the Beatles. Hollywood ball no. That was all I. I went to the last la which was August. Twenty nineteen, sixty six and that was the Beatles Esta left. Day before the last one, which was candlestick. But that was my first concert. That right in the second row air right there. Six dollars? Ticket dollars can you actually hear the Beatles because? I HAVE THEM IN DC and said, the girls were screaming so loud that she couldn't hear the Beatles from where she was sitting in the stadium Yakking you know here and there it wasn't obviously crystal clear. You did have screamed grounding out of most of the time, but you could hear your somewhat mind blown dude, that's all I wanNA say or I'll deal mind-blowing. Well, that'll be a great entry into rock and roll life for anyone. And Talk to us a little bit about the book you were taking pictures around the L. A. Seen for quite a number of years in have some stunning captures in this book in all, it was going to concerts as a kid I used to play around with little Brownie camera when I was nine and ten years old and so eventually when I was able to graduate up to actually getting a decent camera which was. Like nineteen, Seventy, eight, seventy, nine, eighty at one. I really started pushing myself into the into the scene as best I could. It's all proven yourself in the beginning paying your dues you know you're not getting paid when you start out, it wasn't the solely for the money was the for the love of the whole thing. I always had a visual of capturing a great moment. You know whether it was in concert or meeting. Somebody in a hotel room that's what I started doing. Did you build a black and white dark room in your house? My father had a black and white dark room. Yeah. I didn't my house. I had a friend that helped me out a lot a couple of friends that end our rooms and I would bring my films as soon as I shot it the next morning I was there almost at the crack of dawn. We gotta get this process you know right away. That's awesome. You know would do the proof sheets and then big out of print I'd have sometimes I'd have to send something out right away most of the time in the beginning, it was just doing it and getting it done. So I could actually look at what I shot. That's all part of the beginning anyway trial and error is how you learn from a day to day thing you know 'cause I'm self taught I didn't go to school for it and I just I always wanted to do that. You know just take pictures because my father. Was, a newspaper man you were for hearst for the Herald, examiner in La A., and that's how I of got into it. When I was a kid was he would always take me down to the office I used to look at all the photos and the photo room with saga offers, and then I go to the pressroom and watch the paper roll off the presses at night with the greatest greatest experience you know the newspaper game sets how I got into want shoot black and white for falls. What was the first concert? You Shot Elvis Presley Whoa. Seventy six year before he died he he never he didn't come to L. A. and seventy-six closes. He came Long Beach Arena and I had tickets through a friend who is very well connected into Elvis and getting good tickets. So we had some really good seats and that time I think I'd be twenty five bucks to see John a few pictures. They didn't really come out that well. So that's why nothing has really been seen on that because I nothing came out that good at all.

A Conversation With Rep. Ayanna Pressley
"Representative Presley. First of all, we love you. So you know it's going to be a hard hitting interview. With. We love you. Let's let's get into it. Okay. So president trump has clearly included playing up unrest in cities in part of his reelection strategy. He's even gone as far as to imply Democrats are to blame for escalating violence at protests, how Progressives and Democrats push for police reform in a world where an attempt at pursuing justice is spun as a rush to anarchy by right wing media and used as an excuse to become violent by law enforcement officials. Say It's thrilled to be here with all of you. Thank you. I'm big admirers in the ends of the two of you and glad to be with you today. You know what can I say about Donald? Trump. These already the dog whistles anymore there are just blaring horns you know wrapped up in incendiary soundbites and cruel policy in calcium administration. So it's very predictable. This is an old play in this sort of in movement building work you know we're used to it. How do we advance policy? The way always advanced policy as a nation nestor movements you. Know a lot of people when they reflect back on those grainy images, those black and white images of protests and demonstrations. In the nineteen sixties, they will define the progress came out of that solely as the voting rights act in the civil rights at but honestly that movement was the blueprint for every progressive piece of legislation thereafter. So this is how legislation is moved its through movement building and social transformation. That is why now things like inviting qualified immunity which bill that I introduced representative Justin Amash are now part of public discourse that is from organizing mobilizing. Conversations around reimagining our budgets to actually value black lives that has everything to do with the power of movement building, and so we have to continue to do that. We're in this moment of national reckoning on racial injustice is a culture shift occurring people. Now, a very unapologetically affirm that black lives matter but now that has to translate into power shift that is reflected in who we elect to office the laws that we right in the budgets that right those are the only. Receipts that matter. So if you believe that black lives, matter than black representation matters than black data matters, then black home ownership matters black entrepreneurialism matters in. So that's how I seek to legislate is in a very precise way and I'll in here by saying the disproportion hate heard her that has been foisted onto black Americans for generations was not naturally occurring. It was legislated was precise in codified lawmaking until the path forward must be one where we are also precise reverend. Barber. Poor. People's campaign someone that I look too often and just someone admire tremendously. Grateful for his moral clarity and conviction says for moment of reckoning the demands, a third reconstruction, and so that's what we need to be squarely focused. Dohrn is what does that third construction looked like and how do we enlist everyone from organizers to lawmakers as community builders in that reconstruction of a better word equitable world IANNA and I'm calling you Iona because I've known you since the ninety s and that's just how it's going to be. When you when you were telling me what's what? Let's not forget? This week. Joe Biden gave a speech and he released an ad where he made the point to clarify that contrary to what the trump camp is saying about him. He doesn't actually like property destruction that has occurred were some protests have occurred? By doing this Biden, allowing trump to control the conversation. Let me just say this there is an effort to infiltrate into undermine the impact of the black lives matter movement, and the fact that these motivation efforts have continued, which is constitutional. Right to assemble to peacefully protest descent is the ultimate patriotism. James Baldwin said I extensively paraphrase like I criticized this country America because I, love it just that much. She can and must be better. I think we have to be careful to make sure that our movements are not co-opted the people that I see in community who are the four of these movements bay, our community builders, not destroyers and the people that are doing that are infiltrators who won the black lives matter movement to be aligned to be mischaracterize. The people doing the work of justice seeking our peacekeepers you know and I, also think it's important that we not completely rewrite history and sanitize what these movements have looked like in the past. No. So people will bring up Dr King and they'll bring up John Lewis. Will John Lewis was who practice nonviolent peaceful protests almost died on that bridge in many times thereafter in fact, many advocates have said we don't know how John Lewis made it out alive because they always focused on.

That same Kennedy family wage rare intraparty challenge to incumbent Senator Ed Markey. At. First it was a race about generational change and considered Kennedy's to lose. But that changed that generational argument was not as potent here as it has been elsewhere like when now congresswoman Ion Presley pulled off her surprise win in a nearby Boston district just two years ago. Marquis touted his left leaning Boniface including his green new deal sponsorship in the Senate and lockdown a coveted endorsement from congresswoman Alexandra Okay Cortes among other progressive groups plus Marquee Social Media Strategy deployed memes and Tiktok helping to recast the seventy four year old Washington veteran as an extremely online figure popular with younger voters in the end. Marquee delivered a blow. Some are calling the end of. The Kennedy Political Dynasty I'm not sure I agree with that. I very much expect Kennedy to remain in public life and likely run for another office. Again down the line after all, he's only thirty nine but Kennedy's loss on Tuesday was a i. a Kennedy has never before lost in election in Massachusetts. Marquee will now face a Republican this November though the seat is still considered safely. Democrat. So, let's get to the point. It's almost a rarity these days an incumbent, actually fending off a younger primary challenger with a potent last name, but Ed Markey did it. And that is the point four September second twenty

Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes comments on Jacob Blake shooting
"Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes, commenting yesterday on what should and should not be investigated between the Jacob Lake Police involved shooting and the Kyle Rittenhouse case. The shooting and killing of Two rioters. Injuring of another guy's investigation is ongoing. But we don't need an investigation and know that Blake shooting falls in a long and painful pattern of violence, and this is a pattern of violence that happens against black lives too often. Across this country. And as you all know, we saw even more gun violence unfold on Tuesday night when two protesters were tragically killed in one other injured by gunshots. Someone that wasn't looking to keep peace. An outside agitator. Someone who came in from Illinois with a long rifle was able to just walk the streets freely like that something normal that we just come to expect me till you have not anything normal. We shouldn't come to expect that We shouldn't accept it. Because what do you think is going to happen if you haven't agitated man with a long walking down the street? Thinking that he's some sort of peacekeeper, and that kind of behavior shouldn't be enabled, either, And we have to deal with the devastating results of that way. Saw that happen in Louisville already. We saw it happen in Charlottesville. Somebody ran their vehicle to protesters ahead there. Higher was killed now. Kenosha, Wisconsin is also home to that sort of tragic scene. We have to Not ever want to see that happen again. Hey, Lieutenant Governor Barnes. What about in Seattle? Where Ah, Two people were murdered inside the Chazz Chop Autonomous. Own father of 19 Year old was murdered. Just filed a $3 billion lawsuit against the city. What about the violence there? What about Violence against police officers, including committed by Jacob Blake, resisting arrest prior to him being shot. Is that something that's relevant the number of times that Jacob Lake had to comply with police officers before it escalated to the shooting. And while we're manufacturing characterizations of Kyle Riton house, what about the actual records of not only the writers who were killed A convicted sex offender who was according to New York Times reporting, charging Riton house a somebody who was convicted of unlawful use of a weapon and in time public intoxication, who was shot and wounded. The other individual also The other individual killed. The other writer killed also criminal record. Should we talk about Jacob Lakes from El Record and what he was doing at his ex girlfriend's house in the first place? If you want to provide context in the conversation, fine, let's do it across the board and let's separate what we actually know. Versus what the left is hoping is true. Hoping something is true versus what you actually know, are two different things. What's the evidentially standard for making determinations about prosecution's about judgment calls? It seems that one of the questions that Governor Evers and lieutenant Governor Barnes and federal politicians from Diana Presley Kamala Harris to Joe Biden Don't want to comment on is that interesting

Inside Mississippi's Prison System

He sings about the hard labor from dawn until the setting of the sun that's when the work is done. When The prison is still in operation today and still under scrutiny. The conditions that White Sang about and released on a ten inch records still echo from inside Mississippi state penitentiary on pirate podcast did show is the opportunity to the platforms allow these guys on inside voice to complain and let people know what they're really going through. Failures in oversight both within the state's prisons and at the government level have led some correctional officers to come forward even though the cash rate is not our job to treat them like dogs I mean we not the Kennel over there they the freeze and ended be treated like humans. In August two, thousand eighteen well before any thought of a pandemic sweeping the country Mississippi's prison system saw spike in inmate deaths. Correctional officials attributed many of these deaths to what they dismissed as natural causes. This is the ground truth podcast I'm Charlie Senate Michelle Lu covers criminal justice for Mississippi today for this episode, she takes us inside her investigation into the unexplained deaths and why the victims families still have questions. With report for America, Corps member Michelle Lu we're on the ground inside the Mississippi prison system. So as long as people have been in prison, people have died in prison missing prison leaders are looking into the fourth inmate twelve death. This month in a state thirteen prisoners have died behind bars and the month of August alone when local news outlets started reporting on a seaming spike in death across Mississippi's prison system in August of two, thousand eighteen, my editor asked me to take a look let story and figure out how conceptualize it in terms of what did these numbers mean and how did they compared to how deadly Mississippi's prisoners have been in the recent past. Over the course of that month sixteen people fifteen men and one woman died across Mississippi's entire prison system, and that was a significantly higher number than any prior month going back to two thousand twelve. So the State Corrections Department maintained that this number was not out of line with how deadly the prisons usually are. I think it was misinterpreted as to the calls for those sixteen. There's that were reported for the month of August the Commissioner Police Hall suggested that the people who had died inside died in similar ways that people die outside oppressive media those were from natural causes. I'll let the states lack of transparency raised questions about how inmates were dying in the states care. Before. Moving to Mississippi I had done a little bit of cops and courts reporting during journalism internships as a college student and I my student newspaper but I had never done any sort of substantive enterprise work on the topic before. I was really eager to even one of the challenges was that there was an has always been a tension between the urgency of the stories I want to tell Um when. People Send Me. Tips when people tell me about incidents that have just happened and the sort of frustrating Byzantine process. By which I have to. Make a good faith effort to corroborate the story. Circuit Clerk's office healthy. Hi My name's Michelle Lu reporter with Mississippi today in Jackson. This typically involves filing a lot of public records request for public records request and you can send a copy of the check that you're GonNa send and fax number six, one, seven, three times but I, don't get a lot confirmed or denied from the state. And as I've learned neither do the families of those who died in prison. I think families of people who die in any state institution deserve a thorough understanding of what happened to the person they loved and cared about and in talking to family members I found that they were getting little to no information from the state about what happened to their loved ones.

Penitentiary colloquially known as Parchman is one of the largest prisons in the state of Mississippi. It's run by the state and it's located in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. It has a really bleak in distressing history. Frankly, it was founded in one thousand, nine, hundred 's as the cotton plantation and it was modeled after a slave plantation. In the nineteen thirties, Elvis Presley's father. Vernon spent nine months there for forgery. And to this day, the Parchman farm is reported to be a working operation relying on the Labor prisoners. Parchman has also been at the center of several calls for investigations into the conditions inside these investigations have been partly in response, the videos and photos leaked by prisoners. This is a picture of the food trays. These trays are stacked outside exposed to numerous germs, insights, and feces from birds.

"His fellow soldiers he also frequently did favors for his friends ends and acquaintances but even Elvis couldn't handle everything after all he was still living in a foreign country trying to grieve his mother managing managing his absentee music career and performing his duties as a GI. It was all too much but one day and while practicing army maneuvers at the Bay's he received the solution to his chronic exhaustion a sergeant noticed that he was on the verge of collapse and offered him an amphetamine tablet to stay alert Elvis's decision to take the pill would have repercussions for the rest most of his life at the time the side effects of amphetamine pills were not well understood. Many in the medical community considered them to be miracle miracle drugs the sergeant told Elvis the drugs gave him boundless energy and the only side effect was dry mouth. He also said they worked to suppresses appetite which one elvis over it always been image conscious and like his mother worried about his weight. It didn't take long for the pills to become part of Elvis's everyday routine. They allowed him to stamp as late as he needed to and still have energy despair on the weekends hands. They helped him stay cheerful when interacting with fans in energetic during army exercises he convinced many other soldiers to try them them and insisted his friends read and Lamar get in on the action as well. This was just another requirement of the job. Being a member of Elvis's. Mrs Entourage meant you did what he wanted. You liked what he liked and you didn't ask questions thanks to his endless money and fame Elvis. Louis seemed capable of anything he got a generous prescription for amphetamines from a doctor and took advantage of every special privilege. He was offered by the army a month. After his mother's death. Elvis finally felt that he had retaken some control over his life. He had a place that felt like home home. In West Germany with his secretary Elizabeth he had a close female companion to supplement his weekly nightstands. The only thing he lacked act was the deep emotional support his mother had provided for this. He turned back to the colonel. Elvis wrote to his manager almost daily. Eh the colonel sent back messages of support and kept Elvis in the loop about his business dealings not that Elvis was particularly interested in in the details of the business as long as he had some money and fans. He didn't mind leaving the rest of it to Colonel Parker. The colonel took this tacit tacit encouragement and ran with it. He made it his mission to keep Elvis happy. While he was deployed he sent Elvis pep talks by mail where he told hold in the entire country was proud of him for doing his duty. As a soldier he spent hours on end promising Elvis that his career still had life in it and and making the arrangements to keep his fans content he spent so much time Elvis that he didn't take on a single other client even while Elvis this was abroad thanks to his unflagging efforts. Elvis began to think of the colonel as the one person he could truly rely on on the other hand and he argued with members of his entourage who thought he was becoming an arrogant big shot by nineteen fifty nine a year and to Elvis's two year deployment his friend Red West had reached a breaking point he felt elvis through his fame around to get special treatment and didn't like how the Fateh means made Elvis loud and excitable at all hours of the night read tried to confront Elvis about his behavior behavior but the discussion only devolved into a shouting match in May read went back home to the states he was quickly replaced by another one of Elvis's friends cliff leaves. Elvis wasn't short on potential dates either. One of the main duties of his entourage had become come to recruit women around town to go on dates with him in August of nineteen fifty nine fourteen year old Priscilla Bo. You found herself on a date with the now twenty four year old. Elvis that evening. She came to a party at a house. Elvis was renting in Friedberg Friedberg. Germany has was usual on his first dates. Elvis sang for her and introduced her to his kindly grandmother. He was surprised just by her young age but wasn't deterred. He treated her courteously and at the end of the night the astor come back again on their second date. Elvis spent some time with her in his bedroom. Priscilla was nervous but it wasn't what she expected. Elvis just sat next to her on the bed and todd with her for a few hours not long after that. The pair started seeing each other almost every night. Elvis's friends plans were perplexed at his intense interest in Priscilla. It didn't normally get that close with women. Elvis didn't have much of an explanation other other than to say that he found her beautiful and unusually easy to talk to eventually they started sleeping in the same bed together though according to Priscilla shila she and Elvis did not have intercourse their time together grew even more intense but it was also short lived. Elvis's deployment mint ended in nineteen sixty and he left Priscilla in West Germany while he went on a comeback tour in the United States. Priscilla assumed she would never see him again but Elvis promised they would have a future together but that was still a far off dream in the short term. Elvis was concerned with getting back home. When his plane landed back in the states he received a screaming reception from thousands of fans at the airport? He could hardly believe it. The colonel's plan had worked. Elvis was back and bigger than ever but soon soon he would learn that the higher he climbed the further. He had to fall up next. Elvis yields to pressure on all sides leading to a growing internal emptiness now back to the story in nineteen sixty twenty five year old. Elvis Presley returned home after a two year military re-deployment in Germany. He worried that his career would be over after being away for so long but thanks to the expert management of Colonel Parker. He came back more popular than ever since songs had been slowly eat out over the course of Elvis's hiatus. The fans clamored for more Elvis gave them what they want it but after his comeback he shifted his primary focus to acting for the next several several years he starred in a spate of popular films including G. I blues and Blue Hawaii none required very deep performances but most performed performed well at the box office at first Elvis had ambitions of pursuing some big dramatic rules but is more serious movies did not outsell as well. Meanwhile the colonel was always in his ear persuading him to go back to fluffier more formulaic parts but just because the the film's weren't emotionally demanding didn't mean elvis wasn't working hard. He was onset twelve hours a day and toured in between roles he always always showed up on time and did his job as well as he could with a non stop traveling and performing wore him out the only thing that sustained him where the amphetamines by now he was taking them constantly. Unfortunately the non stop drug intake made Elvis irritable and his temper grew shorter than ever before once on a road trip with his entourage. Another driver flipped Elvis off as he drove by hi. Elvis responded by commanding his driver to speed up when they caught up to the guy who and flipped them off. Elvis pulled a derringer pistol from his jacket jacket and waved it around the rest of his entourage had to rush to calm him down there was genuine tension in the car until Elvis finally only holstered the weapon and smiled as if nothing had happened another temper flare occurred while Elvis was playing pool with his friends sunny a woman who was visiting wanted to leave the house but Sonny's car was blocking her in. She has sunny if he could move his car and Elvis told her to ask someone else since they were in the middle of a game on the woman didn't know anyone else in the house so after few minutes of wondering what to do she asked Sonny Sunny again. Elvis suddenly exploded in rage and through his pool stick at her meanwhile. The state of his professional career wasn't exactly helping his mood at the colonel's directive he was only performing songs to accompany movies because these songs these were the most profitable and easy to arrange for years these soundtracks comprised almost all of Elvis's musical output. Elvis didn't particularly Kalihi like the generic work but he was convinced by the kernel that it was what his fans wanted after all it continued to sell well. Elvis ultimately allowed himself to be convinced that his job was to make music that sold as much as possible but that left him searching coaching for fulfilment in other areas since he had returned to the US in one thousand nine hundred sixty he had been writing regular letters to Priscilla in nineteen nineteen sixty two at the age of twenty. Seven Elvis decided that since Priscilla was almost eighteen the time was right for him to see her again he flew the now seventeen year old out to Memphis from Germany twice that year all this time he had been thinking about her in his lowest moments and worked hard to impress her when she visited for her part. Priscilla was still head over heels for him. Elvis said groomed her to see him as a kind of mythical figure and she was determined to do whatever it took to stay in his good graces. Elvis gave her in phetamine so she could keep up with him and his entourage in sleeping pill so she could come back down again one day. She was feeling unnaturally. The anxious Elvis gave her two big red pills and said they were to calm her down. She slept for two straight days. When she awoke doc. She found a terrified Elvis standing over her. He thought she was in a coma and was going to die. Priscilla dealt with the situation with poise as always no matter the obstacle. She was determined to be what Elvis wanted. After her second visit Elvis this negotiated with her parents who finally agreed to allow her to finish her senior year of High School in Memphis but Priscilla's new life in Tennessee was not exactly a dream come true. Elvis was out of the state shooting movies for most of the time she she lived at the graceland mansion with Elvis's father and his wife. They instituted strict rules which she resented. She hated the fact that she we still had to go to school to. She was always waiting for Elvis to come back home. When he was back. Things got better. She was allowed a lot more freedom and Elvis doted on her. She and Elvis slept in the same bed every night but priscilla claimed they still didn't have sex. Wchs Elvis was waiting for the right time. He said he wanted it to be perfect. He also wanted her to be perfect. As always always Elvis sought devotion and loyalty over everything else he consciously shaped Priscilla into the kind of woman he wanted her to be he bought her fancy clothes and gave her directions to improve her looks he hired a dentist to put porcelain over her teeth and dyed her hair black so that it looked more like his own he also subjected her two hours of lectures on how his ideal woman should behave the but above all the biggest thing he demanded of Priscilla was that she keep.

"Now back to the story. Love me tender. Love me sweet we Let me go in one thousand nine hundred fifty eight twenty three year old.

Elvis supported both her and his father and worked tirelessly to improve their lives but immediately following gladys's Addison's death his friendships were frayed by jealousy and family and friends regularly came to him for favors and financial help was any if this fame worth his mother's life Elvis was at the lowest he had ever been even so he wasn't allowed to take more than a week's leave live from military service right after his mother's funeral he was deployed to West Germany in September nineteen fifty eight in Germany. He became a driver for a platoon sergeant getting used to the demands of the army especially fresh off his mother's. The death was hard but soon he was afforded some special privileges which made it all a little more bearable though the entire idea of his enlisting when was to live as a regular soldier. It was functionally impossible for him to do that. Completely fans mobbed him wherever you went even in Germany even the army realized that having him at the base full-time would be counterproductive. He was allowed to live off base in rented. You doubt the entire top floor of a fancy hotel. He then said about filling the rooms with people he felt he could trust he flew out his father grandmother grandmother and two of his friends. Red West and Lamar Feick to come stay with him. He also recruited a personal barber dentist and a driver has was his tendency. He was creating a separate insular world away from the responsibilities of the outside at the hotel. He was the boss even his father couldn't tell him what to do. After all he was the one paying for everyone to be there. He made use of his authority and had his friends pick up dry cleaning and presses army uniforms. He was generous with his money and time but also didn't take kindly okay when people refuse to do what he asked his usual rejoinder was. You don't like it. There's the door his mood swings. Put everyone around him. I'm on edge. Everyone knew he was dealing with a lot of stress and so they learned to act unfailingly upbeat around him because Elvis supported boarded them financially his friends and even his father were at his mercy used the money to manipulate them when they questioned him or didn't do what he asked. If there was one thing elvis hated it was being told no on the other hand his Moody Nece was balanced by moments of extreme aimed generosity he donated money to buy extra equipment and trips home for.

"It really does help. This is our first episode on the death of Elvis Presley the king of rock and roll role and one of the best selling solo artists in music history. Elvis changed the face of music and pop culture forever but his unprecedented sedated fame came with pitfalls he fell victim to loneliness and drug addiction and officially passed away in nineteen seventy seven at the young age age of forty two but since then he's been reportedly spotted all over the United States some fans believe the king never for really died and instead went into hiding to escape the stresses of public life this week will examine the rise and fall of Elvis Louis Presley. We'll explore the circumstances that led to his supposed untimely death and the key people in his life at the time next next week. We'll examine why the death of Elvis has attracted the attention of conspiracy theorists will discuss the theories on what could have happened. Elvis if he survived five after nine thousand nine hundred seventy seven and the clues that indicate may still be alive today. Elvis Aaron Presley rose from humble beginnings. He was born in Tupelo Mississippi on January eighth nineteen thirty five. He was a twin but his brother Jesse Presley was stillborn. Elvis's parents gladys and Vernon were poor. They had trouble trouble making ends meet and partially relied on government assistance to support the family but Elvis was the apple of his parents is and they always ensured award he had enough to get by during his adolescence and into adulthood he became very close to his mother relying on her as a source of emotional support during his rise to fame in search of work. The Presley family moved to Memphis Tennessee in nineteen forty eight when Elvis was thirteen eighteen years old though he had sung in church for years and had learned to play rudimentary guitar in Tupelo Elvis started to take music more seriously in Memphis. He spent hours a day practicing guitar and before he graduated high school he was occasionally performing in public public when he was eighteen years old in nineteen fifty three. You got a day job driving a truck for electrical company. He devoted all of his off time to singing and playing later that year Elvis went to the studios at Sun Records. He claimed he wanted to rent some time and record award a couple of songs as a gift for his mother who loved to hear him saying but while there he took the opportunity to try and make connections as with other musicians he asked the receptionist if she knew of any groups that were looking for a singer when she asked what kind of singer he was. Elvis responded. I don't sound like nobody after listening to Elvis record the songs for his mother. The receptionist passed his name name onto the head of the studio. Sam Phillips Phillips had long been searching for a white man who could sing like a black artist in his words. If he could ever find such a singer he would make a billion dollars at the time. There was a great prejudice against music written and Dan performed by black musicians. Especially in the American South radio stations was white. Dj's commonly refused to play music by black singers and groups few black performers were able to find success selling records both black and white audiences but San Dan Phillips. A white man loved music by black musicians. He knew that if he could find a way to deliver music like that to white audiences this would sell a ton of records when he listened to Elvis Demo. He thought he may found the singer. He'd been searching for still the factory main that Elvis's voice was largely untrained. Phillips called him back to the studio in nineteen fifty four when when Elvis was nineteen after hearing him sing again phillips felt Elvis had potential but needed more practice he called in to experienced musicians Scotty Moore and bill black to help him find a good song for Elvis to record after hours of trial and error. Elvis performed the blues hit. That's all right by Arthur crude up. A groundbreaking black singer guitarist phillips found Elvis's rendition condition sensational. He sent her according to a Memphis radio show with a few days. It became a local hit after the success of that's that's all right. Elvis began touring in the southern United States by the next year nineteen fifty five. He had become a star music promoter colonel. Tom Parker found Elvis captivating. The colonel booked him on country musician. Hank Snow's tour in February. Tom Parker would come to play a huge role in Elvis's career but he was a figure shrouded in mystery. Though the colonel claim to be from West Virginia Virginia he was actually born in the Netherlands in nineteen o nine back then his name was Andreas. Cornelius van Calc Parker got a job on the docks in Rotterdam when he was sixteen years old working on ships going from the Netherlands to America though it's never been conclusively collusively proven it's likely he jumped ship and emigrated to America at the age of twenty around nineteen twenty nine from their Parker worked a variety of jobs in the truth about his life. Story is largely unknown at different times. He claimed to have served in the army and worked at a carnival at some point. Though Parker started working in music promotion Elvis's manager considered the colonel to be a marketing genius and yes. He worked his magic fast soon. The colonel had gotten. Elvis booked on some high profile tours and he was subsequently promoted to be the singers special advisor. The tours propelled Elvis to new heights of fame. His performances got more sophisticated fueled fueled by his newfound confidence at first his legs twitched in his hips wade as part of a nervous tic on stage after noticing noticing that some women in the audience swooned when he moved his hips he refined his twitches into choreographed maneuvers his hips gained him the the screams of his fans in the ire of jealous man despite efforts by conservative religious figures to claim Elvis was leading teenage girls into sexual temptation. His popularity continued to soar this was the beginning of what would become a lifelong problem for Elvis it. It seemed like everybody either hated or loved him. No one can treat them. As a normal person his fans worship the ground when he walked on while the worst of his critics treated him as an agent of the devil sent to morally corrupt children at every concert he he went to he was followed by legions of angry detractors. Sometimes so many that are police guard had to be hired Elvis's manager the jury stated that Teenage Boys Jealous of their girlfriends admiration of the singer formed small groups and tried to jump him after performances. Even in the early days of his fame. This was enough to make elvis withdraw to balance out the critics he started deliberately surrounding himself with people who did whatever he asked his behavior was encouraged by sycophantic friends who bent over backward backward to indulge his every whim though it's important to note some of the descriptions of Elvis's behavior during this time we're given far after the fact it could be the case that some of these assessments were made in hindsight and he didn't feel very personally isolated at the time still. It's it's unquestionable that Elvis's inner circle closed quickly and tightly he cultivated an environment where his word was law to help help him manage the demands of fame. Colonel Parker was always on call. It was thanks to the colonel's constant work behind the scenes that Elvis List secured inexpensive contract with RCA and was promoted so heavily over the next year. Elvis came to trust the colonel more and more why march of nineteen fifty six elvis had appointed the colonel as his personal manager now with total influence over music's the biggest rising talent he booked elvis on a relentless tour and engineered a lucrative seven year movie contract with paramount. Elvis was quickly becoming a phenomenon of national importance. He was in a different league than almost any other artist at the end of nineteen in fifty six his singles accounted for nearly half of our C- as single sales. RCA was a huge label so is no mean feat but his wide appeal was about to become a liability in January of Nineteen fifty seven he turned twenty two and got served a the military draft notice though the US was in a period of peace a small percentage of men were drafted each year and were required to serve refer a minimum of two years serving in the military meant. Elvis likely wouldn't be allowed to perform for at least two years. Most in the music industry considered the draft notice the end of his career. They were certain his popularity wouldn't survive a two year hiatus. The colonel on the other hand believed that if Elvis served and refused to accept special treatment he could change his critics minds and return to civilian life life more famous than ever on the move was risky it relied on Elvis keeping his fan base during the hiatus by stockpiling new songs songs in releasing them intermittently while he was deployed a plan which could be catastrophic. If the sound of popular music changed significantly in in the next two years even so elvis trusted the colonel and agreed to his plan in March of nineteen fifty eight Elvis was sent to Fort Hood Texas for Training Army Life was difficult. He genuinely wanted to be seen as a regular soldier but he he was the most famous musician in the world. Just like on the outside. Many of his comrades were starstruck they offered him as he walked through the barrack's. Those that were not fans gave him a wide berth not ready to consider him one of their own. It seemed that there was no where in the world Elvis Presley could go without facing the pressures of fame at the same time he constantly worried that his career as has a musician was over in August of nineteen fifty eight. Elvis's mother gladys was hospitalized after her liver failed she had started drinking heavily from stress after Elvis was drafted and had been taking diet pills to lose weight it seems Elvis wasn't the only one who felt pressured by his stardom. His mother's obsession with her weighed was brought on by tabloids. The combination of the pills with alcohol caused her to develop cirrhosis. Elvis obtained leave from the army and was by his mother's bedside when she died on August fourteenth at the age of forty six just like that the biggest source of support and his life was gone he would try to fill that hole left behind signed with drugs with drink with money and most of all with women but nothing would work. Elvis would spend the rest of his known life if chasing a feeling of contentment that just wasn't there next. Elvis tries to process his mother's is death while dealing with the stresses of his military commitments and fame dragons dragons sea serpents giant Stevens. These are the monsters that must be slain by any great hero and myths but these monsters aren't merely adversaries series..
