Uhm, now that you "have a little more time", how about you stop boring everyone shitless with excerpts from your life, and start tracking down stuff that could actually prove your points?<quoted text>Now that I have a little more time, I intend to do some of these things.
Let me explain one thing, King Elvis. When Elvis was alive, I continually collected magazine articles about him, whatever interviews he did, etc. I had 12 scrapbooks full of them. I felt at the time that I might need to prove something someday. There was a lot of material written when he was alive that NEVER has made it to the internet, and is out of print now. I know that there are some people on the net who have some of them, but I no longer have access to them.
One of the things that never made it to the net, or I have never seen it, were the many times that he told the public that he would NEVER marry anyone that he thought wanted to go into show business.
I left the midwest and came to L.A and put my Elvis collection into storage. When I went back the whole collection had been stolen along with my tv, records, record player, clothes and everything else that I owned.
By the way, that was the SECOND time my whole collection had been ripped off. It probably ended up in the grubby little hands of some kid who didn't love Elvis and didn't take care of it.
Anyway, that is the reason for SOME of the things that I say someone did or said that I only REMEMBER and no longer have the sources for.
I know they still exist somewhere, but in the past I have never had the time to dig them up.
However, now I intend to start trying.
As far as the quotes from books that you want the page numbers for, I never made notes when I read them. I probably should have. But after losing my collection twice, and hating all the new books that were ever coming out about Elvis, I just got tired of trying to keep any records about him.
I never started a third collection, and outside of a few books, I don't have much.
Just a thought.
