EIN EXCLUSIVE - Elvis Week 2017 reports from EIN's Sanja Meegin

.. Yesterday was the most amazing day ever touching all bases "Elvis".

 



We toured Memphis with our friend Tom Salva (from the Kings Ransom museum).


He had one of Elvis' Shelby County belt buckles with him.

 


Tom is an amazing guy, with such great stories and a very funny man.

We saw over 30 ELVIS sites including, Anita Woods house, Sam Phillips recording studio, STAX and Khang Rhee's karate studio just to name a few..

You'll recognise Khang Rhee's karate studio from the familar footage of Elvis walking in there with Linda Thompson ...

Other familar places we found

Tom also got us inside the old Memphian Cinema which was very surreal.

Later we enjoyed the Strictly Elvis dance party at the Graceland Guesthouse which was AMAZING and a brilliant night, with lots of dancing and fabulous Elvis vibes..

The party was packed and the dance-floor rockin' by the end


Lots of friends to say hello to including Keith Alverson, Dick Grob, Larry Geller, Jack Soden, Linda Thompson and Sam Thompson..

But all too soon it was time to move on, tomorrow - the Vigil - is a long, long time..

 

If today was not an endless highway
If tonight was not endless trail
If tomorrow wasn't such a long time
Then lonesome would mean nothing to me at all

Monday 14 August 2017 - - - ELVIS WEEK 2017 - Day 4 - - - -

EIN EXCLUSIVE - Elvis Week 2017 reports from EIN's Sanja Meegin

Gotta do some livin', got the wanderlust
Better clear the highway 'cause I'm gonna move some dust
Oh I got wheels, wheels on my heels
And I gotta keep rollin', rolling along .. to Tupelo
Oh I got wheels, wheels on my heels
And I gotta keep rollin', rolling along

... It was a beautiful day to spend in Tupelo and remember where it all started.

A lot of people had arrived in town and there were 3 massive coaches of tourists when we arrived.
 
We walked around and not surprisingly bumped into several old friends on the way.

Loved looking at the statues which were new what I last came down here.

Of course Elvis' Birthplace always deserves plenty of time just so any fan can understand where Elvis came from and how astounding his life's journey was.

Sitting on Elvis' little porch swing always takes me beck to thinking of Elvis as a little critter unaware of the future that would lay ahead of him. You can almost hear Gladys' voice calling for him to be careful.

And of course visiting the little chapel is a very moving experience.

We ran into our old friend Guy Harris - who went to elementary school with Elvis - and had a chat to him.
He told us more stories about early times with Elvis, he and Elvis were neighbours until Elvis and the family moved up to Memphis. As he has noted before it is believed that his mother was nearby during Elvis' birth!


Afterwards we visited the old Tupelo Hardware store - usually closed on Sundays but the owner just happened to be going in while we were there so opened up for us. ( "X" marks the ELVIS spot!)


We also stopped at the old fairgrounds to see statue.

But once again time was running short as we sped home....

"We had motor trouble that turn into a struggle
Halfway across Alabam'"


Later we hit Beale Street - but was pretty light on people .. some music , a cocktail and bed...

Sunday 13 August 2017 - - - ELVIS WEEK 2017 - Day 3 - - - -

EIN EXCLUSIVE - Elvis Week 2017 reports from EIN's Sanja Meegin

... Night rider, night rider
You may think that it's the breeze
Whispering through the lonely trees
But it's only him a'flying round the bend
As the day comes to that end

Apologies for the delay, but if you were here you'd be partying too!

It is always busy, so many people to see and a girl has to do what a girl has to do!

Who makes my heart beat like thunder?
Who makes my temperature rise?
Who makes me tremble with wonderful rapture
With one burning glance, from their eyes..

After the full on-day yesterday, today we checked out the alternate major ELVIS Collectors' fairs and a chnace to say 'Hi' to some old friends..

First the Jon Daly collectors fair, which was fine if not as full as you might expect - perhaps everyone is spending their first days at the mansion and museum.

 

There was still plenty to see as well as a chance to say Hello to Elvis' cook Nancy Rooks.

.

Afterwards we headed over to the (old) Clarion to have a one-on-one with Elvis photographer Keith Alverson.

His new book 'Strictly Elvis' is truly amazing - as you can see below - and I believe he only had 50 left to sell for the rest of the week. It was just walking out the door at a rapid pace.

Get there NOW if you want a copy!

Check out EIN's Keith Alverson interview and STRICTLY ELVIS book preview here.

I also said Hello to Elvis' old buddy Jimmy Velvet who seems to be pretty much selling off all his Elvis treasures - except of course for his TCB neck lace.

Jimmy told me some delightful stories including how sweet Gladys was, even though she never seemed to smile - and he reminisced about one time that he remembered Elvis swore in front of her and she grabbed him by the ear lobe and dragged him into the kitchen and ripped through him!

 

Go HERE to EIN's Jimmy Velvet exclusive Interview

With Tupelo beckoning tomorrow it's time this girl got another Marguerita!

And I'll leave you with a couple more favourites photos from Graceland yesterday..

... Relax, kick your shoes off baby
Relax, here we are alone
Relax, if the phone rings, let it
Just forget it, we're not at home..

Saturday 12 August 2017 - - - ELVIS WEEK 2017 - Day 2 - - - -

EIN EXCLUSIVE - Elvis Week 2017 reports from EIN's Sanja Meegin

Reporting back - Midnight in Memphis-

 

Today it was "Graceland - here we go!" - and the crowds have arrived.

.. "How I wish that there were more
Than the twenty-four hours in the day
'cause even if there were forty more
I wouldn't sleep a minute away
.."

 


While the queue for Graceland tickets was around 90 minutes yesterday, now it is the weekend and fans have rolled in queues are over three hours.
The set-up feels very disorganised, fans will need to be patient and don’t plan to do anything in a rush.

A dramatic start as it took me over 3hrs to get to the front of the line and then there was a massive  thunderstorm!

Perhaps ELVIS is annoyed about how poorly organized the new system is. Hopefully it will improve over next few days




Fans wanting to know about getting the PASS for visting Elvis' grave on Vigil night - you get a "Properly Pass" with any ticket you buy - mansion tour/Elvis Presleys Memphis (the new exhibit centre).

Then you leave it on your wrist all week. It will give you entry each day to the tent and entry to the vigil. If you do not have a property pass and don't want to tour the house, the wristband is $28.

Sadly for local Memphis fans they won't get into the vigil without a property pass wristband.

Note parking for the tent is $10 or free after 5pm


On the way I was caught by a real heavy summer-storm which passed through but was over within a couple of hours

Very little has changed inside Graceland since I last visited.
However the Trophy room and Racquetball court are now empty with all their contents moved across to the new Museum.

To be honest the Racquetball court is a little boring although now you can understand the set-up and think about Elvis playing his last game 40 years ago - followed by his famous lasts session playing piano quietly for Billy Smith and friends.
The Racquetball court  now has the sound playing of people hitting balls around.


The Trophy room, old Hall of Gold now have various pictures and souvenirs on the walls to stop them looking completely bare.

A nice bonus is that various Elvis Home-Movies play on big-screens hanging on the wall.  Stuff like Priscilla’s (green dress) birthday party and their 2nd wedding reception. While we have seen excerpts before these presentations are far longer with stuff I have never seen before.

.

The odd thing is that the new Museum is so large – like aircraft hangers - that they feel very empty. Some rooms even today had very few Elvis fans walking around.
Perhaps EPE need the Elvis treasures that are still being held in the Las Vegas Westgate dispute to fill out the rooms.

There are around 25 jumpsuits on display but most we've seen many, many times before.
There were however a couple of nice new shirts and maybe two new suits.
There was however no Aloha suit and no Gypsy suits or anything like that which I found strange.

To be honest I much prefer the old set up where everything was side-by-side and it was a little more "homey".
Now it feels like everything has been moved away from the real feel of "ELVIS" and his home and possessions with it more like a sterile museum vibe.

They have obviously taken their cues for the set-up they have designed from the spacious London exhibition that ran rather successfully for a year.
It is obviously a clean and new design - but at the expense of that special ELVIS feeling.
(See EIN London ELVIS Exhibition review here)

With the arrival of all the Elvis Week fans the atmosphere and excitement is ramping up.
It feels very good to be here.


The Graceland Plaza tent is much smaller than it used to be, is ticketed and the sides are down so you can no longer check out the performances from the outside like you used to be able to do.

Of course most of the major events are inside in the new ‘Elvis Soundstage’ area.

I also managed to find time to visit Circle G Ranch before hitting Graceland - bit it's still looking a little run-down.

Of course it is private property so you cannot wander around and soak up the atmosphere as much as you would want.

Tomorrow is another day and so much to do and so many friends to see.. - the crowds have doubled and it looks like Elvis Week is well on the way to being one huge party.

... Honky Tonky Joe is knockin' at the door
Bring him in and fill him up and set him on the floor
Let's have a Party, ooh let's have a Party,

EIN EXCLUSIVE - Elvis Week 2017 reports from EIN's Sanja Meegin

Swing low Sweet chariot, come down easy
Taxi to the terminal zone
Cut your engines and cool your wings
And let me make it to the telephone...

Reporting at Midnight - Thursday..



Hi everyone,
Here I am back once again in the 'Promised Land' for my 18th Elvis Week - it seems that I have previously miscalculated my number of visits!


It feels great to be  back "home" and amongst all things Elvis and all my best friends.

Nice to fly in to Memphis airport and immediately see some cool "Elvis 40" memorablia for sale.

The Weather looks to be excellent for the up-coming week, cooler than the usual hot-sticky-mess of August in Tennessee.


Today was much cooler than usual - 30c day and lovely 23c nights.

This year decided to take in a little "Elvis warm-up" via Lincoln, Nebraska.
I dropped in to check out the Lincoln University Coliseum where Elvis played on May 19th, 1956 where a bit of sweet-talking got us in to see the original stage he played on
We interrupted a volleyball game but you gotta do what you gotta do!

.

The Lincoln Sunday Journal review from 1956 noted, "3,000 wildly screaming teenagers with Presley garbed in yellow sports coat with black stripes, a blue iridescent shirt with kimono collar, black pegged trousers, and hair coiffured in "ducktails" and sideburns. He had the young Lincolnites in such frenzied pitch they tried to grab him off the stage."


We held onto the stage and tried to feel that energy from over sixty years ago.

 

(NB - I apologise the photo is Elvis in LIVE ACTION May 1956, but sadly not from Lincoln)

I also dropped into check out the Pershing Municipal Auditorium where Elvis played one of his last ever concerts on June 20th 1977.

However it has been shut up for 3 years and there was no way to get inside.

 

Having landed in Memphis, Wednesday night was quiet but last night this party-girl headed down to Beale Street which went off last night- the entire street was lined with motorbikes both sides - Harleys, everything you could think of - a great atmosphere.

The crowds have not arrived yet, they will be pouring in tonight and of course it's sure to fill up over the weekend.

Sadly - apart from Beale Street - there's not much excitement in the air as yet.


I'm looking forward to the Sold-Out Dance Party and of course the Dolan Street house event.

Pretty much waiting for everyone to roll into town.

While it has been quiet it has given me a chance to visit my good friends in Mississippi.

"Send out to the store, And let us buy some more, And let's have a party tonight"... this girl needs to find little more action in this town...


"Los Angeles give me Norfolk Virginia
Tidewater four ten o nine
Tell the folks back home this is The Promised Land calling,
And the poor girl is on the line"

Great to be back in Memphis, and I'll be back with more news soon...

40th Anniversary Stirs up tabloid interest into Elvis Death: Picked up by M-S-M from Radar Online the 40th Anniversary has stirred up interest into why Elvis died so tragically young. Elvis' possibly allergy to Codeine is once again being discussed..
... For decades it has been reported that Elvis Presley was found dead in his Tennessee Graceland mansion home face down on the bathroom floor from cardiac arrhythmia.
New reports from Radar Online state that a new investigation into Elvis Presley's death and autopsy reports reveal that it may have been something entirely different that took the life of Elvis, something that could have been prevented.
Former forensic scientist Dr. Cyril Wecht claims that Elvis' autopsy reports were bogus claiming that there is "no way to diagnose cardiac arrhythmia on a person who has already died." The Doctor, who throughout his career has conducted over 14,000 autopsies and consulted on more than 30,000 others said there was a fatal error made by Presley's dentist Dr. Lester Hofman the day Elvis died.
Dr. Hofman had performed a painful dental procedure on Elvis hours before his demise. Following the procedure, he prescribed a prescription of codeine to help Elvis manage the pain. The only problem was that Presley was highly allergic to the painkiller and his allergy was clearly marked on all of Presley's medical and hospital charts.
Hofman passed away in 2006, and according to the shocking new report was not the only person aware that Presley was allergic to the painkiller.
It has been no secret that Elvis had a drug problem and was catered to by his physician, Dr. George “Nick” Nichopoulos. Dr. Nick, as he was referred to, catered to the singer with an endless supply of potent painkillers, including Dilaudid, morphine, Quaaludes, and barbiturates.
Despite that, it is now believed that it was "10 times the therapeutic" amount of the codeine found in Elvis' system the day he died that killed the singer. Joe Esposito described Elvis' frame of mind on the day he died stating that, "I think Elvis gobbled down the whole bottle of codeine by mistake."
“All my life I have been haunted by the idea that my best friend — and the greatest talent the world has ever seen — didn’t have to die!” Joe concluded.
Even without an allergy, the dosage consumed by Elvis would have likely been fatal the doctor noted.

However back in 2014 DNA testing was supposed to reveal that Elvis suffered from a genetic heart muscle disease, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
He appeared to suffer symptoms of the condition in his final years, including an irregular heartbeat, fatigue, fainting and high blood pressure.
The 2014 findings suggested that regardless of his diet, the iconic singer was always destined to die young.
EIN notes that it only goes to prove Elvis' amazing legacy that 40 years later he is still in the Main-Stream-Media every day.

That "Elvis Feeling" still in Bad Nauheim: It's 40 years this month since Elvis Presley died. His Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee is a place of pilgrimage for fans - but so too is a German town which is very proud of its connection to the King of Rock and Roll.
The street was the very picture of sturdy German middle-class, dappled, leafy, with white wooden dog-tooth fences, weather vanes and plane trees.
Yet one house seemed a little different. A sporty, defiantly rebellious-looking white BMW 507 coupe was parked outside and a small cardboard sign by the front gate read: "Autographs: 7:30-8pm."
In the evenings, you could hear singing coming from inside the front room. The songs would range from gospel to country - even hymns. Holding the higher notes and occasionally breaking into yelps of laughter, the voice sounded strangely familiar.
Because here, at 14 Goethestrasse in the small spa town of Bad Nauheim, Elvis Presley was in the house.
Six decades later, things haven't changed much in the street that Elvis - then Private Presley - called home during his enforced two-year stint with the US Army at the height of the Cold War.
This summer at least 6,000 Elvis fans from across the world, to celebrate the star's life.
Bad Nauheim is where Elvis did his military service and as he once wrote in a letter home, he felt like "a little, lonely boy 5,000 miles away".
Drafted at the height of his early fame, the rock and roll sensation was offered the chance to swerve conventional duties by simply performing for soldiers on US bases around the world.
There's another draw for visitors this year, in the reopened Hotel Grunewald - the place Elvis and his gang stayed for their first few weeks in Bad Nauheim before they all moved to Goethestrasse.
"If you stay in the room where Elvis lodged, you'll find nothing has changed," says the manager, Thomas Droescher, who has taken over the handsome 16-room, late 19th-Century corner hotel.
"The bed is the same walnut wood bed that he slept in. Even the black Bakelite toilet seat is his. But I don't know how I can stop people taking souvenirs. Last time this was a hotel, every crystal from the chandelier in Elvis' room was taken one by one by the guests." Four decades on from his tragic end, the appetite for a piece - no matter how small - of Elvis only continues to grow in this quiet corner of Germany.

The King and I: Ed Bonja photos Exhibition in Australia: Elvis Presley and music fans alike will have a chance for unique look into the life of the King of Rock and Roll next month.
The Ophir Tavern in Orange, country NSW, is hosting an exhibition of 170 photos taken by Elvis's personal photographer, Ed Bonja. The collection is curated by Adam Nicholson, who runs the Ophir Tavern.
The opening of the exhibition - which will coincide with the 40th anniversary of Elvis' death -will be the first time in five years the collection has been displayed publicly.
Some of the iconic images of the king are familiar to many fans, as Mr Bonja photographed Elvis from 1970 to 1977.
The photographs include hundreds of shots taken at concerts and in Elvis's private life that were used for album covers.
"All the famous photos were taken by Ed. He was the only photographer permitted on stage," Mr Nicholson said.
The exhibition is made up of original prints, including some photos which have rarely seen the light of day.
"One of the first Ed ever took was of Elvis on Frank Sinatra's private jet that Elvis leased," Mr Nicholson said.
"And the very last photo ever taken of Elvis on stage. You won't see the photos in Graceland. It's the largest collection of photos taken by one man of Elvis," Mr Nicholson said.
He said the photos covered the years in Las Vegas and the jumpsuits, including the famous 'American eagle' suit worn during the Aloha from Hawaii concert.
The free exhibition will open on August 16 - the anniversary of Elvis's death - until August 20, midday to 2pm each day.

Previous EIN Elvis Week Specials

Forever Elvis - A 2015 commemorative Spotlight: Elvis touched the soul of every true fan and that hot August night in 1977 the fans returned the love. The funeral for the famous musician stopped the city. Thousands of people packed the streets, sharing their grief and love for the man who was gone. They followed the casket, which was festooned with flowers, and then, together, started singing one of the musician's most popular songs. Never before had so many voices joined in glorious harmony.... There is a universality to grief.

Just as mourners in Milan did back in 1901 as they joined together to sing one of Verdi's signature tunes, so too in August 1977 did people gather from all over the world at the gates of Graceland to mourn over their lost idol.

EIN's Piers Beagley contributes a special Spotlight for August 16th - And Elvis will live, Forever.

Elvis Week Through The Years - Sanja Meegin looks back: EIN's Sanja Meegin has been to Memphis and attended Elvis Week 13 times in the past 15 years. During that time she has witnessed great concerts as well as met up with many of Elvis’ family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances.
For the past decade Sanja has done her best to get to every concert, book signing, ceremony, convention, appearance and memorial that she could manage and report back to EIN for those who couldn’t be there to experience it for themselves. Of course that hasn’t been easy when combined with the excruciatingly hot Southern summer temperatures, the lure of cocktails on Beale Street and keeping the hours Elvis kept whilst there – party all night, sleep all day - but she has done her best! - Part of our EIN 100th newsletter celebration!
Go here as Sanja looks back at her fifteen years of visiting the Promised Land and Elvis Week.

ELVIS WEEK 2013 report: It was with a heavy heart that we EIN's special Roving Reporter Sanja Meegin could not attend Elvis Week in 2013 due to other important commitments, but there is no doubting that 2013 was a very quiet year with very few Elvis week presentations actually selling out.
Memphis Police still estimated around 30,000 attended the candlelit vigil, while Conversations on Elvis featured the wonderful Mother Dolores Hart.

Go here to EIN's 2013 Elvis Week special for more on Dolores Hart, video clips of the Candlelight Vigil, the special "Elvis at Stax" listening party, the Elvis Tribute Artist competition and more..
