Elvis Had A Stillborn Twin Brother

Elvis had an identical twin brother who was born 35 minutes before him. The twins were born at home and his older brother, Jesse Garon Presley, was stillborn. Jesse’s tragic birth impacted Elvis greatly and he spoke of his lost twin all his life.

Elvis’s Real Hair Color

Elvis was a natural blonde. He died his hair black because he thought it emphasized his features and made him more distinctive looking on film. The US Army didn’t allow soldiers to dye their hair so pictures of him during his Army years show his natural fair hair.

I’ve loved this app for years and use it at the theater and home. Super easy to use and so helpful to know when it’s a good time to run for the restroom. I notify my kids when it’s close to time, so I don’t end up running them to the restroom multiple times. (Updated review from 4 to 5 . I’d had an issue with the app while at the theater and it was quickly resolved with FANTASTIC customer service. Thanks, RunPee!)

TCB means “taking care of business” and it became a key part of Elvis’s brand. His first TCB ring was made live on stage. He branded his private planes and much of his merchandise with “TCB.” The saying supposedly came from times hanging out with his inner circle, known as the “Memphis Mafia.”

In A Flash: The Meaning Of Elvis’s Lightning Bolt

Another fun fact about Elvis Presley concerns his bling, specifically some famous lightning bolt jewelry.

After adopted “TCB” as his motto, he added the emblem of a “lightning bolt” to it. His famous lightning bolt ring and necklace, both of which you’ll see in the new Elvis movie, meant “taking care of business in a flash.”

Elvis’s Last Words

Elvis had a lot of sleep and digestive trouble later in life, probably caused by his dependence on prescription medications. He sometimes spent so much time in the bathroom that he’d fall asleep on the toilet.

One sleepless night, when he was 42 years old, he went to relieve himself. He was dressed in his signature gold pajamas and carried the book, ” The Scientific Search for the Face of Jesus” with him. When his fiancé reminded him not to fall asleep, he answered, “I won’t.” Those were his last words.

Will his last words be in Elvis the Movie? Watch it in theaters on June 24th. And don’t forget to use Runpee’s Peetimes so you don’t miss any of the good parts!
