Review of Geraldo Rivera’s tv program “Elvis at 80”

http://video.foxnews.com/v/3914839106001/geraldo-rivera-reports-elvis-at-80/#sp=show-clips

I recently watched this one hour special that aired on November 28, 2014.

My reaction(s) are:

There was way too much about Elvis’ drug addiction.

The Jerry Schilling interview was sincere but there was an answer, pertaining to members of the Memphis Mafia, that (I am sure) was hard for Jerry to answer but came across as (a) not in full context and (b) deserving of a response by those members of the Memphis Mafia. I have long held that it is long past time when the members of Elvis’ Memphis Mafia reconcile and support each other in every aspect. Every year brings (sadly) news of another death of those who were; loved by, befriended by, worked with, related to, etc. Elvis Presley.

Geraldo has a long history of Elvis expose and I can attest, firsthand, that some of Geraldo’s past comments about Elvis (an example is “I never bought into that yes mam and no mam —t”). Interestingly, during Elvis’ lifetime there was an incident whereby member of the Memphis Mafia related that “Geraldo felt snubbed by Elvis”.

They should have allowed other members of Elvis’ Memphis Mafia, other than Jerry and George, to be apart of this program even if it was only a statement.

I know that anyone/everyone in the world will be pining to do an interview about anyone pertaining to Elvis Presley’s 80th birthday being January 8, 2015. There are many people of quality (including but not limited to; Marty Lacker, Red West, Sonny West, Billy Smith, Alanna Nash, Sandie Stevens, and Sandi Pichon) involved in Elvis’ life, onstage and off, and their input should be sought out in every instance.

In closing, I wish everyone a happy Hanukkah. A merry Christmas. And a Happy New Year 2015. May god bless you one and all.
