Elvis Presley

in Famous

A man who needs no introduction. The King dominated the American pop music charts for decades before succumbing to cheeseburgers and prescription pills. Although most people are aware of the manner in which Elvis died, few realize how much his manager had to do with it. Colonel Tom Parker was a domineering, greedy dutchman with the legal name Dries van Kujik. Since he was an illegal immigrant in America and could not travel out of the country, he nixed any European tours Elvis has the opportunity to embark on. Parker signed Elvis into d-rate movie deals, commandeered the production of an album [butchering one of Elvis' songs in the process] and tried to force The King into a television performance in which he would dress up as Santa Claus. Elvis had had enough. The performance happened with Elvis dressed in a striking black leather outfit, looking like a million bucks. Sadly, his comeback performance did not secure his rise back to stardom and perfect health. Instead, his demise was met while fat, unhealthy, and hunched over on a toilet bowl about a decade later.
