Elvis and MJ

Well this is probably not the first comparison post, however, it is for me and it’s just startling!

After I write my post, I’m going to see what other bloggers have written on the comparisons and put links to their posts below.  So if you find a duplication of information, it was not me copying them, however, it will serve as reinforcement to the findings as I’m not the only crazy one seeing the similarities. 🙂

So here’s a summary page on why Elvis Lives and I’m just going to pull out the things in Elvis’ death that made me go… yup just like MJ!

“The only time I feel alive… is when I’m in front of my audience, my people. That’s the only time I really feel like I’m human.”- Elvis

Misspelled middle name…
Elvis’ name is misspelled on his headstone. Elvis’ full name is Elvis Aron Presley, but on his grave his middle name is spelled incorrectly with two a’s. His father would not have let this happen. When Elvis was born, his name was misspelled on his birth certificate, and his father went to great lengths to get it put right. The unique spelling of Elvis’ name was important to his family.

Discrepancy in weight…

Elvis was very vain, and he was embarrassed about his recent weight gain, an astonishing 50 pounds in the month before his so-called death. Even though he weighed about 250 pounds at the time of his “death,” his death certificate lists him at a spry 170 pounds. The original death certificate disappeared, and the current death certificate is dated two months after his alleged death.

Discrepancy between body at death and the corpse….

Elvis was an 8th degree black belt whose hands were rough with calluses, yet the body in the coffin had hands that were soft and pudgy. The body in the coffin had a pug nose and arched eyebrows {unlike Elvis} and most importantly, one of the sideburns on the “corpse” was loose and falling off. A hairdresser later reported gluing the sideburn back on the body.

Going to the airport.. I mean hospital… I mean airport… J
Two hours after Elvis’ death was announced publicly, a man who reportedly looked remarkably like Elvis purchased a ticket for Buenos Aeries, paid in cash, and used the name John Burrows: the same name Elvis had used as an alias several times before.

Final curtain call… Adios!

In the weeks preceding his alleged death, Elvis’ actions were not those of a man who was about to embark on an extensive US tour. He ordered no new suits despite having gained 50 pounds since his last tour, and he bid “adios” at his last show in Hawaii. He had never done this before. Adios, like the French adieu, has the significance of being a final good-bye as opposed to an “I’ll be seeing you on my next tour” kind of good-bye.

Unprecedented deals…

Others were intrigued by Elvis’ decision to sign a lucrative TV deal with NBC that would cover the tour. It was unprecedented for a network to pay such a large amount up front, in cash, for such a deal. Many wonder why Elvis even agreed to the deal since his vanity discouraged him from making public appearances due to his weight gain.

RCA showed uncanny and unbelievable foresight by mass producing millions of Elvis’ current and previous recordings and merchandise. This is standard practice for an act that is about to go on tour, but the numbers in this case were beyond reasonable expectations. The announcement of Elvis’ death caused record sales to skyrocket.

Hire em Fire em…

Elvis did other unusual things that created suspicion. First, he fired several employees that he had relied upon for a long time.

Don’t believe everything you read….

Also, two days before his alleged death, Elvis telephoned a friend of his named Miss Foster. He told her that he wasn’t planning on going on the upcoming tour. She asked him if he had canceled it, and he said that he had not. When she asked if he was ill, he said that he was fine, and that she should not ask any more questions or tell anyone anything, and that she should not believe anything she read.

Number fun….
Elvis had a fascination with numerology, an interest he fed by reading Chiro’s Book of Numbers. The theory that Elvis orchestrated his death is further supported when considering the significance of the date of his alleged death. The date in question is August 16, 1977. By adding the numbers in the date, 8, 16, and 1977, you get 2001. This is the title of Elvis’ favorite movie in which the hero plans his immortality in the bathroom.

Ok pause a second… Michael Jackson date of “death” June 25, 2009. By adding the numbers in the date, 6, 25, and 2009, you get 2040.

Given Elvis’ religious beliefs, he had a fascination with things that come in threes, for example, father, son, and holy ghost. The sum of the digits from his favorite film (2+0+0+1) is three. Let’s consider the triad of the repetition of the number 24. 2001 (favorite film) less 1977 (year of death) is 24. The two numbers from the day of death (8/16) when added up equal 24. The sum of the digits in the year of death (1+9+7+7) also equals 24. That is 3 occurrences of the number 24 which is divisible by 3, and when divided by three the result, 8 has a perfect cubed root (2x2x2=8).

Elvis loved numerology, and when you consider the numeric significance of the date of his alleged death, it is clear that if indeed he did plan to fake his death, he could not have chosen a better date.


Elvis had many reasons to fake his death.It has been said that Elvis’ life was in danger. He had recently lost $10,000,000 in an airplane/real estate deal with a California based organization called the “Fraternity” that had links to the Mafia. It is speculated that he corroborated with the government to expose the organized crime ring in exchange for protection, perhaps in the form of a new life and identity compliments of the Witness Protection Program.

Elvis was a prisoner of his own fame. He had many other reasons to leave his life behind. Because of his incredible popularity he recieved several death threats, and he was concerned about the safety of his ex-wife and daughter.


Use of doubles….

Sometimes when he wanted to leave Graceland he would send look-alikes out to distract would be followers.

Getting older… career ending…

At the time of his alleged death, Elvis thought he was nearing the end of his career. He saw his self as 42 with greying hair, overweight, and he thought his voice was starting to weaken,. He was going down hill, and he was too proud to go out with a whimper. He would never want his fans to see him in such an unhealthy condition.


Prepared for death…

Elvis had shown a fascination with death on several occasions. In the days leading up to his alleged death he was reported to have visited funeral homes at odd hours of the night with close friends. Was he doing research?


Testing the waters….

Elvis once faked his death by setting up an elaborate shooting in which a would be killer fired blanks at Elvis who had a blood pack which he discharged. It was Elvis’ intention to see how the people closest to him would react to his death. Perhaps what he learned convinced him to do it for real.


Book and spiritual journey….

Finally, one of Elvis’ favorite books is the spiritual Autobiography of Yogi. One of the central themes of this book is the relinquishing of one’s wealth and earthly possessions to achieve spiritual oneness. Elvis could do this, as well as address his other concerns of sanity and safety by faking his death and living in exile.


Drugs… Karate…
Elvis had the means to fake his own death. He is accused of destroying himself with drugs. In reality, Elvis was a pharmaceutical expert. He took a lot of drugs, but he knew what he was doing and was extremely careful. He knew what drugs he could self-administer to create a deathlike state. Also Elvis’ experience with the martial arts was such that he could slow his heart rate and breathing in order to feign death.



It is also rumoured that Michael is a black belt in Karate however, I haven’t found anything to prove that other than heresay.

Passing of new identity knowledge….

Elvis’ manager, Colonel Tom Parker, had once created a new identity for himself. He came to America as an illegal immigrant from Holland, but through various connections managed to create a new identity complete with a passport, birth certificate, drivers license, and social security number. He would have known how to give Elvis a second life.

Aswell as Elvis’ ties to the government through his testimony against the “Fraternity”, Elvis was known to interact with the President of the United States. He was reported in government documents to use the name John Burrows as an alias when he wanted to travel. Some people believe that Elvis worked for the government as a drug agent. He did, after all have extensive contact with many people in the music business who, as we know, tend to dabble in illegal substances. And, of course, we must allow that Elvis’ connections to the government gave him access to the Witness Protection Program. If they can turn the Simpsons into the Thompsons, they can relocate anybody.

Orion/Gabriel Star
Many believe that Elvis couldn’t have given up performing completely. Just imagine, after a while the desire to perform would grow once he started his life in exile. The story of Orion supports the theory that Elvis attempted a secret comeback.

Shortly after Elvis’ alleged death, a masked singer by the name of Orion emerged on the scene. He was big like Elvis, and he sang just like Elvis. Because of the mask no one could tell his true identity. One fan described seeing Orion from near the stage. She claims that Orion left the stage between songs, and when he appeared moments later the sweat was gone from his armpits and back and she thought that his costume looked slightly different. After the song he left the stage, and the original Orion returned.

Another fan described how she rushed into a tour bus at an Orion show only to see two Orions in the back of the bus. She claimed that one ducked into the bathroom before she could get a good look at him, but he appeared to look like Elvis Presley.

What’s even more remarkable is the fictional story called Orion that was written by Gail Brewer-Georgio about a legendary performer who had several identities and wanted to fake his death. The story was written and submitted to the William Morris Agency for publication consideration after Elvis’ alleged death and before the real Orion ever performed. As it turns out, there are many ways in which the real Orion mimicked the events as described in the book. For example, the performers’ managers had the same name. Also, without knowing it, Brewer-Georgio wrote of events in Orion that had actually taken place in Elvis’ life. It was a case of life imitating art.

Picking up the Pieces.

Nothing has happened like this yet… I don’t think… but this may be to come with the comic Fated coming out….

“The graphic novel, titled “Fated,” focuses on the story of Gabriel Star, a well-loved musician with obvious parallels to the tragically deceased King of Pop. In the book, Star’s failed suicide attempt results in his popularity rising even further, elevating the character to literal supernatural status.”

Worth more dead than alive….

It seems that Elvis Presley is worth more dead than alive. By faking his death and relocating with a new identity he is safe from his fans and the “Fraternity”, the government can make a solid case against the organized crime ring, and RCA, Elvis’ family, and Elvis’ management can all reap immense financial benefits from the attention.

Untouched insurance policy….

That is… except for one benefit….after nearly 25 years no one has collected on his life insurance policy.

Why ?????

Being seen as a person not a personality….

He told of how he would like to be just himself instead of an “image”.

Not to mention all the strange things surrounding their deaths….

And lastly, is it a stretch to say, like father in law, like son in law?

  1. I am glad that this topic was discussed on this blog, totally agree with all the above, but there are some problems in the legal regulation in the light of recent changes in legislation. I would not wish to write here in great detail, much is written on the site http://moslegist.ru … But thanks anyway!

    • Legislation… you mean for faking your death? You can get around anything under the term “performance art” 🙂 People don’t get arrested for faking their death in a movie as an actor!

  2. Thanks to @PurpleFedora for this question on Twitter: @lilwendymjhd Is it true that the rumours of Elvis faking his death first surfaced on June 25th 1979?? O_O

    Answer: I guess so! Look! http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20073978,00.html
