Elvis Presley’s 35th anniversary of his death is today.
FBI files on the King of Rock and Roll have continued to open up windows into his life and death.
According to the secret files obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests by author Peter Guralnick of Careless Love: The Unmaking of Elvis Presley, Elvis was allowed to have a private tour of the FBI headquarters ten days after meeting with President Richard Nixon at the White House in 1970.
The FBI memo summarized that during Elvis’s visit, he said he wanted to advise FBI director J. Edgar Hoover: “that The Beatles laid the groundwork for many of the problems we are having with young people by their filthy unkempt appearances and suggestive music while entertaining in this country during the early and middle 1960s.”
In his opinion, the source for the resentful and rebellious young people of the day was because of the existence of “the Smothers Brothers, Jane Fonda, and other persons in the entertainment industry of their ilk,” because they had “poisoned young minds by disparaging the United States in their public statements and unsavory activities” (Guralnick, P. 426).
However, unlike Nixon, Hoover refused to meet with Elvis.
The allegedly gay director did not like Elvis and described him as “wearing of all sorts of exotic dress,” according to research by Nick Redfern in Celebrity Secrets: Government Files on the Rich and Famous and Anthony Summers in Official And Confidential: The Secret Life of J. Edgar Hoover.
Suzanna Leigh, an actress and self-described “soul-mate” who worked with Presley in the movie Paradise Hawaiian Style, claimed in her book last year that Elvis was murdered by the Mafia the day before he was set to testify during an FBI investigation into the Fountain Pen case.
He was a victim in a Mob fraud case involving millions of dollars.
Elvis’s dad Vernon Presley also believed he was murdered by the Mafia.

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
