Priscilla Presley kept the King of Rock 'N Roll's Music alive after his untimely death in 1977.


According to Fox News, Priscilla answered some of the most-asked questions surrounding Elvis Presley's death.

Priscilla revealed that Elvis had entered a spiral of drug abuse. It was the same drug that was given to keep soldiers awake. She said that Elvis was in unchartered territory with his cycle of drug abuse.

She said that people asking why nobody did anything when Elvis was going through a hard phase was not a fair assessment.

There were people in his inner circle that tried to help him out but no one could do anything beyond that. No one could tell Elvis 'The King' Presley what to do. According to her, Elvis knew what was doing.


73-year-old Priscilla believed that it would have been an impossible task for anyone who'd intervene with Elvis even if they were trying to save his life. According to her, anyone who tried it would've been sent home packing by Elvis.

Priscilla spoke to Fox News while she was promoting a new documentary titled Elvis Presley: The Searcher that she produced about Elvis' final recording sessions that took place in Graceland's Jungle Room. 


Priscilla was married to Elvis Presley in 1967. The pair split up after 6 years of marriage in October 1973 but continued to remain great friends. 


Elvis lost his life on account of acute myocardial infarction on August 16, 1977, in Graceland, Memphis, Tennessee. After his death, Priscilla took charge of keeping his music alive. She was the co-founder of Elvis Presley Enterprises.

Priscilla enabled Elvis' Graceland Estate to be transformed into a major US tourist attraction. The place receives over a thousand people at one time to visit Elvis' home.

Priscilla also kept Elvis' music relevant by producing and releasing the remastered versions of his songs. She also provides assistance and knowledge to new films and documentaries about Elvis.
