Today I found that a very good video, which I included in two articles on my Current News and Events pages for January and November of 2015, had been removed from YouTube. I have no idea how long it has been gone. At any rate, because it was missing from my two 2015 articles, I chose to upload my own copy of the video to my YouTube channel. I have made the corrections to my earlier articles.
Because this was such an enjoyable video of Garth Brooks on the Hoda show on Elvis’ birthday, I want to share it here again. This contains a wonderful comment about the fact that Elvis is alive made by Garth Brooks. I hope all of my visitors will enjoy seeing this video as much as I have watching it again today.
I also want to call attention to the fact that the song “The Dance” which was recorded by Garth Brooks is one of the newer (post 1977) songs on Jesse’s album which was released in 2012. This is my favorite song on Jesse’s album because he changed one of the words to make the song be about him, his audiences and his leaving us. Listen closely as you play this song from the music player shown on your upper left side of this page and you will hear that he replaced the word “you’d” with “I’d ever say goodbye”.

I think this will be enjoyable for those who have never had the opportunity to view this BBC 1992 TV documentary “There’s Only One Elvis”.
there;s only one elvis
1992 tv documentery narrated by lisa tarbuck
There are several comments made near the end of this film to which I would like to call attention.
The first is the comment by Bill Burke who said that he thought it was so sad that Elvis could not remember the words to the song “MY WAY”. I may be wrong but, to me, Elvis made this comment about not knowing the words in order to call everyone’s attention to that song and the meaning of that song. He did this because it was meant to be a part of his farewell as he knew that was going to be one of his very last performances. That song so nearly described his life and career and could have been Elvis’ way of summing it all up by saying “I did it MY way.” He always wanted people to “listen to the words” of his songs to get the meaning. What better way to call attention to the words of that particular song than to say what he did. “…and now the end is near..”
The second comment is by D. J. Fontana who said that he would go by to visit Elvis and that he told him that he had all that he did and yet he wished he could go back to the way it was when there were just the three of them. He told D. J. that he was “so tired of being Elvis“. You may hear this near the 1.05:13 mark. Elvis told so many people, near the end, that he was “so tired of being Elvis“.
I am so very thankful that he finally has been able to get some rest.
Below are two screen captures of Elvis’ smile from the above documentary. The reason that I want to share these is so that everyone may see this particular view of Elvis’ face to compare to that of his in the photo from 1994 which Jesse gave to me.
Those who have been longtime visitors to my web site may recall way back in the early days, there were people who were saying that the photo of Elvis with his grandson in 1994 was really a photo of Dick Van Dyke. I fought more than a few battles over these inane accusations.
As you will see below, Elvis’ face in these captures from the above documentary do show the same bone structure resemblance and smile lines as in Jesse’s photo.

I enjoyed the below article about the location of Elvis’ Army hair cut, in March, 1958, becoming a museum and tourist attraction.
From Elvis to Denzel
By Rex Nelson
Posted: November 5, 2017 at 1:05 a.m.
It was March 25, 1958, and Elvis Presley was being given a buzz cut at Fort Chaffee after having been inducted into the U.S. Army.
Asked by reporters what he thought about having to give up his famous sideburns, Presley said: “Hair today, gone tomorrow.”
The quote was printed in newspapers across the country the next day. And the haircut is still celebrated at the Chaffee Barbershop Museum, which is open from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday-Saturday and is an anchor of the Chaffee Crossing Historic District.
Ivy Owen, executive director of the Fort Chaffee Redevelopment Authority, said several people interested in history urged him to restore the building soon after he took the job in 2007. Some members of his board doubted that such a museum would be a success, but the doubters soon turned to believers as the guest book filled with names from across the country.
“We opened that museum in 2008 after restoring the room to look just like it did in March 1958, and since then we’ve had visitors from 40 states and 15 foreign countries,” Owen says. “It has been a hit since the first day the doors were open.”
Today’s Perspective section cover story chronicles the success the Fort Chaffee Redevelopment Authority has had in recent years as it develops almost 6,000 acres. New subdivisions and apartment complexes are springing up at every turn. Not all of the success story involves new construction, though. Part of it has to do with attracting tenants for old base structures that are being repurposed for commercial uses. Hundreds of buildings were demolished after the federal Base Realignment and Closure Commission recommended the permanent closure of Fort Chaffee in 1995. Several buildings that once were part of the fort are now being renovated, and businesses are taking notice.
Ivy told the publication America’s Defense Communities: “One of the first requests I made of the authority’s board after I was hired was for $40,000 to design a historic district around the Elvis building, which has became a major tourist attraction, drawing people from all over the world. I didn’t think they would give me the money–and the project wound up costing three times what I asked for–but they let me go out on a limb. Fortunately, I didn’t break it.”

I am very pleasantly surprised to see that someone has used my Email from Pastor Bob Joyce in a video on YouTube declaring that Pastor Joyce certainly is NOT Elvis.
I came upon this video by accident while on YouTube checking in on my own channel. A wonderful surprise!

THIS ORIGINAL VIDEO WAS REMOVED FROM THE ORIGINAL CREATOR’S CHANNEL BECAUSE OF A COMPLAINT FROM ANOTHER MEMBER. THE EMAIL IN THIS VIDEO WAS WRITTEN FROM PASTOR BOB JOYCE TO ME WITH HIS INTENTION THAT I PUBLISH IT ON THE INTERNET TO HELP STOP THE RUMORS THAT HE IS ELVIS. SHOULD SKUTNIK OR ANYONE ELSE FILE A COPYRIGHT CLAIM AGAINST THIS EMAIL VIDEO, I WILL FIGHT THE COMPLAINT. AS EVERYONE CAN SEE THIS EMAIL WAS WRITTEN DIRECTLY TO ME AND IS MY PERSONAL PROPERTY.

THE TRUTH WILL AMAZE Published on Oct 29, 2017 THE TRUTH FINALLY COMES OUT – FAIR PLAY TO YOU BOB
I thank you very much for posting this video showing Pastor Bob Joyce’s personal Email to me. Pastor Joyce wrote this Email in response to my request that he please help me to show people that he is not Elvis. He gave me his permission to share this Email on my web site, on my Facebook, and elsewhere on the Internet where people are spreading the false statements that he is Elvis. In the photos which you have shared, one may see him as a younger man and with his wife in a more recent photo. Elvis, who IS Jesse, is 82 years old. Obviously, Pastor Joyce is at most in his 60’s. It is very disrespectful to Jesse and to Pastor Joyce to continue spreading the false rumors. The Facebook page titled “EVIDENCE ELVIS PRESLEY IS ALIVE is the “page” to which Pastor Joyce was referring in his letter to me where he says that he has “contacted the creators of that page and requested that they not continue.”
Also, as you can see, when I shared Pastor Joyce’s Email to me, I left his full Email address visible to everyone reading it in order that anyone who doubts that this letter was written to me by Pastor Joyce may Email him and ask him to confirm that he did send this letter to be displayed publicly. I hope that some of the viewers of your video will do so. I will insert Pastor Joyce’s Email address copied directly from his Email to me in case you have trouble reading it clearly in the Email shown in this video. I am certain that Pastor Joyce will be happy to verify the validity of this Email to those who contact him in a respectful manner.

The below is a very important addition to my web site. I hope everyone will view this in the respectful manner in which I have created it. I mean no disrespect to Elvis’ family by the following. But, either the people involved in the below video do not know the truth or are covering up the truth. Because I feel that their video is not in line with Jesse’s wishes, I have chosen to publicly refute their statement.
This is a new video on YouTube…please do watch
Published on Nov 11, 2017
Billy Smith addresses the rumors. The truth revealed. Danny answers some viewers questions.
Is Elvis Alive?
Below is my published response which appears below their YouTube video:
My statement on YouTube to Billy Smith
I write this in a most respectful manner because you are Elvis’ family. However, I have documented proof shared with me over the past 25 years by Elvis himself, who reinvented himself as his still-born brother Jesse following August 16, 1977. He is still alive as of last Wednesday. Perhaps you were not privy to the real truth at the time that it took place. I don’t believe that you were because I was told, by the man himself, that only 6 people were involved and knew the truth at the time of the “death”. None of you have been named as being among those 6 people.
I respect you and mean no insult to anyone whatsoever. However, your statement is going to rob many, many people the world over who have followed my web site for the past 8 years and have seen the proof for themselves. This is a cruel act on your part and I don’t believe that you intend to be cruel. I do understand that you fully believe that you are telling the truth. I KNOW that I am telling the truth and that all I have done to share the truth with the fans has been with the approval and support of the man the world knew as Elvis Presley.
I will not go on and on detailing all of the documentation which I have displayed on my web site except to say that everything on my web site when taken into account proves beyond all doubt that Elvis, the physical man, did NOT die. He was so very sick and tired of being Elvis Presley and he allowed the image to die. The man has lived a private life which is as normal as could possibly be for someone who had been the most famous man on earth. He has wanted only his safety and privacy.
I have done as he has asked and shared more of the truth on my web site than is available anywhere else on the Internet. Jesse has stated this himself. I have many letters written in his own hand explaining why he left and some of the details about how it was carried out. Visitors have heard 15 songs which he recorded which were released on a CD in 2012…there is no mistaking that it is definitely the voice of Elvis Presley. There is photographic proof…right down to the scars on Elvis’ legs and the same scars on Jesse’s legs. Professional handwriting analysis has been done by a court-recognized expert which unequivocally proves that Jesse’s handwriting is that of Elvis Presley himself.
My web site has been on the Internet for 8 years and has had well over one million visitors. I am NOT here to advertise my web site and, therefore, I won’t even include the link to my site.
I have to add one thing to Billy though. I understand that you and Marty have stated that you gave the interview to the People publication in the UK as “a joke”. If that is true, why did you go into such detail in Alanna Nash’s book? In her book, you state that Elvis discussed with you the idea of faking his death and that you even spoke with the man on the phone who was perhaps going to be the “stand in”. You summed it up by saying something about Elvis saying that he was not leaving without his money and that Elvis never talked to you about it again.
With all due respect,
Linda Hood Sigmon

UPDATE REGARDING THE ABOVE BILLY SMITH FAMILY VIDEO
My posted comment to their video on YouTube has been deleted. However, in a rather sneaky maneuver, they have somehow edited my comment so that when I visit their video while I am signed into YouTube, I can still view my comment in it’s same original location. However, when anyone else visits their video, my comment is completely missing…I AM THE ONLY PERSON WHO CAN SEE IT. Several people wrote to me, shortly after I posted my articles yesterday afternoon regarding this video on my site and on my Facebook pages, telling me that my comment was already removed.
Below is a current screen capture (which shows my comment) which I just made to prove that I can still see it myself when I am signed into YouTube:
This is a small size capture just to prove that this is from their YouTube video while I am signed in currently:
This is a full size capture so that one may see that it really is my comment which remains on their YouTube video when I am signed in:
Below is a capture of the current video comments while I am NOT signed into my YouTube channel while viewing it.
After 8 years of dealing with dirty and underhanded tactics to discredit my web site, this does not surprise nor disappoint me.
However, to further document the statements which I made to the Smith family, below are some pages from Alanna Nash’s book in which Billy Smith, Marty Lacker and Lamar Fike are featured speaking freely about their own experiences with Elvis.
I have covered all of this long ago on this site…but to refresh memories and for those new to my site…
This surely validates my comment to Billy regarding his story that they were just telling “a joke” to the People publication in the UK.
I grow so weary with people who use less than forthright tactics to try to cover up the truth which Jesse and I have been telling for the past 8 years.

The below is something from way back in the early days of the “Elvis Is Alive” adventure. This tape came out with a book by Gail Brewer-Giorgio in 1988. I fell totally in love with it the first minute I heard it and that feeling has never wavered. I have shared the tape and the background information about it on my site before. However, I came across it on YouTube tonight and felt compelled to share it once more. Can’t hear too much of a good thing!!
An Excerpt from the Elvis Tape that passes voice print analysis!
Published on Jul 4, 2016
In 1988, eleven years after Elvis was supposed to have died, Gail Brewer-Giorgio was sent a copy of a audio tape of a recorded phone call that sure does sound like Elvis. She had published a fictional book called Orion in which a famous singer would sing one last time and then fake his death and disappear to Hawaii. It’s chilling to listen to the tape because it appears that life imitated art and that is why Gail was sent the tape. Listen for Elvis saying “this and that.” when he describes growing beards to disguise himself.
Excerpt #2 from the Elvis Tape that passes voice print analysis.
Published on Jul 20, 2016
This is a few more minutes from my Elvis tape where he discusses with the friend on the phone what he has done since he faked his death. 35 known words from a interview Elvis did were used for the voice print analysis of this tape which is a fair comparison.

I have been searching back to locate Marty Lacker’s nasty messages which he posted on the Messages to Jesse page of my site so many years ago. I have finally located my article containing his first attack. Please see it below:
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2010 (12:11 AM)
I vowed that any negative remarks posted on my message board devoted to Christmas greetings to Elvis/Jesse would be removed. However, in one instance, I have decided to leave one vile message on there so that everyone who visits may read it. I will also be printing this off to include to those which I send to Elvis/Jesse so that he may see for himself (once again) what one of his so-called friends is saying about him and me. I have not written one negative word about Mr. Lacker prior to this. I have steered clear of him because I knew what his attitude toward me would undoubtedly be. I have not, until today, read one word which he has written about me. But, since he has invaded my personal web site…I am glad to let him have his say.
My web site will not become a battle ground between me and anyone. I will not waste my time nor my web site space on the likes of Marty Lacker. There is much inside and behind-the-scenes information which I have and know proving that Jesse is Elvis. I am not shaken for one second by Mr. Lacker’s unkind and disgraceful attack on Jesse and me. Mr. Lacker would do well to brush up on his typing and also clean up his foul mouth if he expects to garner the respect of decent Elvis fans.
He has time and again spoken and written disgraceful trash about Elvis. Just check out his part in the Alanna Nash book Elvis Aaron Presley…Revelations of the Memphis Mafia with Marty Lacker and two other so-called friend and relative. This book is so disgusting that I cannot begin to read it…just scanning through it makes me nauseous. Mr. Lacker is one of those former friends about whom Elvis/Jesse wrote when he said that they had revealed intimate thoughts about him to make money because that is the only way they have to make money.
I will say only one thing in response to Mr. Lacker. How do you explain that the DNA from my friend Elvis/Jesse from 2002 and 2008 matches the first cousins on both the Presley and Smith sides of Elvis’s family…the same DNA which is now the basis of a court case for which a hearing date has been set???
Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year to you too, Mr. Lacker!!
Here is Mr. Lacker’s “kind” message to me about myself, Elvis/Jesse and my site:
12-16-2010 9:48:43 PM CST
Elvis fans don’t be fooled by this nut. I’ve posted countless times on EIN telling everyone Elvis is not alive and this Jesse thing is bullshit. I was there when he died. Linda’s NEVER been there and why the hell would he write a book with these people after all these years? And Linda, you made one big mistake because if Elvis were around he wouldn’t have dark skin under his eyes. He took care of that in the mid 50’s. But that’s right you weren’t there and don’t know because you DON’T know Elvis! Elvis fans have a merry christmas and let Elvis’ soul rest in peace. TCB Marty Also look on youtube if you don’t believe me, even Joe Esposito said they’re full of shit!
Still looks pretty dark in this post -’50’s photo below, doesn’t it, Mr. Lacker??
I also proved that he lied in his message to me above when he said I was there when he died. He was NOT there and, in fact, did not even attend the funeral. He wrote this in his own book and gave details about how he got the phone call telling him of the “death” and that he didn’t leave his distraught wife in California to come to the funeral.
Below is a copy of the page from his own book proving my stated fact:
