As much as EP was alleged to have been a "searcher" and a reader, I think his overall intellectual world was really somewhat limited.
Nothing much about his lifestyle or the later music was positive, and no one would agree with that more than EP himself.
A great many people met Nixon, myself included. So what. (Btw, his visit was viewed as a joke by the insiders at the WH.)
His musical knowledge was extremely limited.
He loved to read, but he was never able to expand outside the limited scope of his southern Baptist, flag-loving mentality.
The drug-induced scrawlings only reinforced the already-negative opinions of those at the WH.
The use of "alleged" comes about because the search and love of reading was not so broad as commonly thought; it was rather limited.
One of countless poor choices in material.
He lost the great musical opportunities that were presented to him.
Well, you are correct about Vernon, a sour, apathetic coot, and the classless, no-good relatives.
I think Gladys likely did EP more harm than good; from all accounts, she was a whining, yes, overly protective woman, and was probably foundationally responsible for EP never having completely evolved into a secure man.
As a grown man, he "should" have had the great good sense not to air the dirty laundry and do something so offensive and uncomfortable for fans who'd paid a lot of money to see him and hear him sing.
There's enough there, just in a few years period of time, to represent a significant musical history. All the other stuff is meaningless.
If someone had truly cared about EP, seems to me the first thing they'd have done was tell him the truth about his (and Linda's) taste in home furnishings, point out the absurdity of the obvious in his life, and pull him back into reality
Cheap and depressing looking.

I am curious as to your agenda quasar3?
As you have 60 posts in this arena it is quite evident through these quotes that you have a certain amount of disdain for Elvis.
but you certainly have an axe to grind and it would appear that you have chosen this forum as the place to put the metal to the rock.
As you have no qualms about dishing the dirt on EP,
your Goldmanian type postings?

He's dropped by to expose his failings; he'll be gone soon enough once he taps the sum total of his misinformation.
Then he'll be replaced by the next dim bulb who thinks it would be briefly amusing to "enlighten" us on a topic he knows little about.
Folks, why brighten his sad, silly existence by responding to him?
