November 23, 1976

There was a bit of trouble at the gates of Graceland. This was the second night in a row that Jerry Lee Lewis appeared at the gates in the early morning. He was waving with a gun and demanded to see Elvis. According to witnesses he was screaming and cursing, and the police said that the singer was sitting in his car with a loaded 38 derringer resting on his knee when they arrived. Elvis watched the whole thing on the closed-circuit monitors.

If Elvis was watching the whole thing on CCTV - I wonder why he didn't go down to the gate and help Jerry Lee out after the police arrived?

Maybe he thought Jerry deserved a night in jail.

What happened with Jerry Lee Lewis? It seems his nose was hurt.

Why on earth should he have helped that crazy fool?? Who knows what he´d done had he gotten to meet Elvis...with a gun...you can´t argue with a sick mind, and I do believe that Jerry Lee was sick and crazy.
