the last chapter really highlights both the excessive dehumanization AND glorification of elvis even after his death….

Some of his live work from September and October 1974 is among the worst of his career, in line with 1976 and 1977. Equally cryptic for some were the parting words the King said as he left the stage: "We'll meet again. He once said: "Presley's chronic constipation - the result of years of prescription drug abuse and high-fat, high-cholesterol gorging - brought on what's known as Valsalva's manoeuvre. However, this would have been difficult given that his manager Colonel Tom Parker was an illegal immigrant who couldn’t leave the country without fear of not being allowed back in. By the time of his death, Elvis was struggling with various health issues: glaucoma, high blood pressure, liver damage, and an enlarged colon, each possibly caused by drug abuse.I have pretty well seen them all and thought that this particular one was the most powerful of the bunch in the clever way they edited the interviews with archival footage for maximum impact. However, two months before his death Elvis Presley took to the stage for his last staggering performance to be captured on camera.
