Excellent list there, A-dog. Also remember that Steve Allen had Elvis wear a tux during that performance as well, (even though I think it was suppose to be kinda tongue-in-cheek, but it was still lame.) I have to give it to Pelvis though...if you've seen that performance, you can tell while he was singing that he thought it was pretty absurd. Of course he smiled his way through it, but if you look at his face and some of his expressions, you can tell he was probably thinking, "I feel like a complete jackass right now."

I thought of a couple more..

*The "executives" at Decca for intitially rejecting The Beatles and saying that "guitar music" was on the way out.

*That Inspector dude, (I forget his name), who was known for planting drugs in rock star's homes to get them arrested. He got Mick and Keith in court trouble, and I think it was even rumoured that he planted that pot on John and Yoko when they got arrested in '68. Of course, years later he was indicted himself for corruption.

I assume you're referring to the hashish that was planted in George's shoebox (?) around the same time. I honestly don't remember who alerted him.

I got another one....

Those close-minded, ignorant, numbskull radio DJ's and "fans" who broke and burned Beatles records after John's "satanic" Christ comment.

I think there were rumours, (actually I think some pretty solid facts), that Pelvis, through his "connections" tried to get The Beatles deported, by using their drug use as the excuse ('Cuz you know "Angel Elvis" never touched the stuff), and for their "influence" on the youth of America. What it all boils down to is this....Elvis was jealous. He was jealous the first moment The Beatles stepped on American soil, and I don't think it stopped until their breakup. He was mad because The Beatles took away his popularity, and while most people were digging the newest Beatles album, he was making films like Clambake and Girl Happy, and a lot of people didn't care about him anymore. He was jealous and angry.

By the way, you can't mess with a doped-up honorary DEA Agent.

of course not. nothin' more dangerous than a DEA agent on drugs.
He probably got access to the better stuff after he was made an honorary agent.
