The King has left the building!

16 Aug

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Thousands of devotees converged on Graceland to mark the 35th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death and got a surprise welcome from the King’s former wife and daughter, the first time Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley have appeared together at the annual gathering.

More than 70,000 fans have flocked to Graceland this week to commemorate the death of the man known as ‘The King Of Rock ‘n’ Roll’.

In 1977 an unconscious Elvis Presley is rushed to Baptist Memorial Hospital around 3 p.m. Despite efforts to revive him, Presley is subsequently pronounced dead. At a press conference that evening, medical examiner Dr. Jerry Francisco indicates that the cause of death appeared to be “cardiac arrhythmia,” noting that, “There was severe cardiovascular disease present.”
