When Elvis was at the International Hotel in Las Vegas, Joanie claimed she was the only one who had access to him in getting the star to meet fans.
She remembered: “I kept bringing people to meet him. And I was the only one who could get anybody in there. Because he didn’t want to meet that many people. He was tired of [it].”
It was during this time in the early 1970s that was a big turning point for The King, as he peaked and then began to decline.
David English, the author of a book on the Elvis: That’s The Way It Is documentary film, previously told Express.co.uk: “In every fan’s mind, it’s Elvis at his peak. The world was his oyster here. He couldn’t do a thing wrong at that particular point. He really looked good and his voice was in good shape.”
