This tells of what happened to Elvis in the last weeks of his life told by his friends & bodyguards Lamar Fike, Sonny West & others. As Lamar Fike says: Elvis took drugs because he liked them ,but what they either did or didn't know, was that Elvis was in pain from a twisted colon, he also had very high blood pressure & had problems with sleep - Elvis could not wind down & relax after a show & stayed awake until the following morning .
, Elvis's friend , hairdresser & spiritual advisor Larry Geller, told how Elvis was very ill - almost comatose, & Larry was dipping Elvis's head into a bucket of ice to revive him , when Col Tom Parker, Elvis's manager, burst into the room , stared into Larry's eyes & said : ' the only thing that's important is that Man is on stage tonight, nothing else matters, NOTJING!' It showed how Col Tom couldn't care less about Elvis , all he cared about ,I.e., the Col , was money . He lost thousands of Dollars gambling at cards ,Dice & Roulette , which meant that Elvis had to give a concert in order to pay the Col's gambling debts. Because the Col was an illegal immigrant from Holland, & his r
al name was Cornelius Van Kyuk not Tom Parker, he wouldn't let Elvis tour outside the U.S , nor let him star in good films like ' Midnight Cowboy' & ' A Star Is Born' . Elvis would have lived a lot longer had he got rid of Col Tom who was robbing him right, left & centre , & got himself someone else . Elvis May no longer be with us , but he is still THE KING!
