Linda is a talented songwriter and married David Foster years ago,,now divorced, and he is a BIG music person.

I think Linda was there for a reason but so was everyone else. At least she looked after Elvis' health more than the other women around him.

I could always understand her attraction to david briggs. Elvis..GOD love him, was drugged most of the time...it is difficult to "be" with someone who is not conscious.

I keep hoping that somehow these drugs deaths of so many talented people will stop.

I STILL say, the families are not doing their jobs. Elvis should have been committed as well as Michael Jackson...hindsight in these cases are fatal.

Vernon could have done it...but everyone who does this to these people don't want their cash cow to stop working.
Also,,these 'stars' should take responsbility, they are given MUCH and throw it down the tubes.

Elvis dated Susan Ryan the same time he was with Linda - and at home,, he probably was on his medication and sick so much, Id say Linda had to find an outlet for her frustration and did no wrong in dating others.

Elvis was full of PRIDE and if he thought others knew about his "women" cheating, then he'd let them go. Like, he supposedly found out Ginger was seeing someone and she was the next to go supposedly?? even though he had given her a very expensive ring.

Linda was with Elvis when he was still functional and watched him going down - GINGER MET HIM WHILE HE WAS DOWN, DOWN and she would have had more reason to be with him to use him than any other woman - most likely he was impotent when she got with him.

Hey - in fairness to Linda - Elvis dated others through their relatinship also - Joyce Bova and the Caan woman were all when Linda was supposed to be his main girlfriend. She was still with hin in 1976 when he called Red West as he said "Linda was in LA finding them another condo/apartment to stay in while there". So any women between late 1972 and about the end of 1976 meant he cheated on her??

But yes, I read somewhere someone stated he did not like confrontation and expected any woman he was with to know "when it was time to go". Linda stated she went with him to Vegas and he told her he had sent the plane to take her back to Graceland and Linda knew Ginger was also there and understood at that time it was over. She states he did tell her no matter what happened he'd always love her - and Elvis did love women he spent time with - even when they broke up - I think he got BORED. So between that and she probably was dating Briggs and the 24-7 job of keeping Elvis alive when he passed out, I'm sure she felt it best to MOVE OUT AND MOVE ON.

And it's written everyplace that Lisa Marie called Linda before SHE CALLED HER MOM or let Ginger comfort her and I read someplace they were still friends? Anybody know?

Elvis did not fire David Briggs from the stage, that is nonsense.
Briggs last played for Elvis in February 1977 and was replaced by Bobby Ogdin in March at the beginning of the mext tour.
Briggs' final show was as normal, so no idea where you got your erroneous information.

I actually read an article that stated Elvis walked over to him on stage & pulled the plug on his instrument David then knew he was out ..google it & see ...All up a Sad Sad story a Sad Sad ending to a great Man & Musician ...Sad no one had the guts to get him help they had the guts to use him & cheat on him ..drag him off when he was out cold if need be but that's my opinion if you love a person enough you move heaven & earth to save them

does naybody know when linda and david briggs started there romance?? I saw somewhere that it was before she left elvis??
Was it David Briggs I have heard other wise, I have heard a longtime ago it was David Stanley that she was knocking about with, the one with the blonde hair, he would go everywhere with him too, maybe go on trips and holidays which Linda was on with Elvis, maybe David and Linda wanted to get away from E but they did not have any money.
