not on tour, Elvis spent all day and all night for weeks at a time

sheets on the bed are the last Elvis and Ginger slept in. Miniscule
hairs, skin cells and dried body sweat still cover them. The bed was
straightened and food removed from the room by Elvis' housekeeper only

8-hour doses of his daily prescription drug cocktails and took them all
at once to commit suicide. His body was found in rigor-mortis face down
between the toilet and the shower. His skin was tinted blue and he had
bitten deeply into his tongue. His pajama pants were still around his

it? Is it still passable today? Why isn't it ever mentioned?
