If there is something left to be said about Elvis Presley, this has to come out from the files of any governmental agency. The funniest connection between Elvis Presley and the FBI starts in 1970, when the King used to get enormous amounts of medication, of peanut butter sandwiches and of jelly.
The very popular Elvis Presley and other six persons in his group of friends were interested in the possibility of taking a tour around the FBI building o the 30th of December 1970 and in the opportunity of meeting and shaking hands with the head of the FBI. Morris mentioned that Presley had just been handed a distinction by the President of the United States of America for his efforts to discourage the use of narcotics by youngsters and for his support regarding the problems of the youngsters in Beverly Hills, California. The documents of the Bureau reflect the fact that Presley had been the victim of a series of blackmail attempts which had been reported to the FBI.
It appears that he was also involved in a paternity lawsuit which was supposed to take place in California and that his stage movements which were so popular in the 50s and 60s had been seriously criticized by the fans and by the press. However, Hoover didn’t want to meet the King on FBI territory.
Presley was finally let to take a tour around the FBI headquarters on New Year’s Eve in 1970. Presley declared that he wanted the head of the FBI to be aware of the fact that the King was sometimes approached by individuals and groups of people inside and outside the entertainment area, whose interests and purposes were not in the best interest of the country and who wanted him to attach his name to all kinds of suspicious activities. Therefore, he declared that he wanted to give confidential information to the FBI whenever the FBI decided to listen to him. Presley believed that The Beatles had a lot to do with the problems the youngsters had in those times, especially when it came to their rusty appearance and to the suggestive music they played in the 60s
