Above all, it is the addiction that makes life difficult for the Presleys. Addiction runs through their family history. This is preceded by psychological problems that run like a red thread through their family history a well.

Elvis fought his pill addiction for many years. To what extent this is to blame for his sudden cardiac death at the age of only 42 is controversial. However, one thing is certain: August 16, 1977, was a terrible stroke of fate for his family.
