Inspired by the outpouring of affection occasioned by the 35th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death yesterday, we dug through the archive cupboard to find the original NME news story from the event.
Elvis had released his final single two months previously, 'Way Down', and a tell-all book had been published at the beginning of the month of his death. Charles Shaar Murray was more scathing in his contribution, describing Elvis as a "Dorian Gray for Our Generation. Given what we now know about Elvis' drug-blasted final days, the newsdesk, edited by Derek Johnson at the time, took a cautious and respectful line.

NME wrote that although those close to Elvis mentioned that "the singer was taking dozens of pills, and giving himself several injections every day", the official line was that "he died of a heart attack, but doubtless this was the final result of numerous contributory factors". He got a chance to sing on a local radio in 1947 but he rejected for he was too shy to sing live on air. There were many other musicians like the Rolling Stones and the Beatles who gained more attention from the audiences.

NME also queried who Presley's income would go to, noting that, "he earned an estimated 7,000 million dollars, but spent it on a lavish scale, and set up a huge trust fund for his daughter Lisa.
A remix 'A Little Less Conversation' went to Number One in the UK twenty-five years later - and today, in 2012, Elvis remains one of the highest earning musicians in the world.
