Lisa Marie Presley Son Benjamin Keough Dead at 27 ... From Apparent Suicide
https://www.tmz.com/2020/07/12/lisa-marie-presley-son-benjamin-keough-dead-dies-suicide-elvis/

Image

3:57 PM PT -- Lisa's manager, Roger Widynowski, tells TMZ ... "She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11 year old twins and her oldest daughter Riley. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life."

Lisa Marie Presley's son and Elvis Presley's grandson, Benjamin Keough, has died of an apparent suicide ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Ben appears to have died Sunday in Calabasas from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Not much is known about him other than the fact that he's got a super-famous family. He's the son of Lisa and musician Danny Keough -- and his sister is actress Riley Keough, who's been in a number of indie and horror films over the years, including 2019's "The Lodge."

Of course ... his grandparents are Elvis and Priscilla Presley.

Ben has kept a low profile throughout the years, but the one thing he's well-known for is looking almost identical to his famous grandfather, The King himself.

Lisa addressed the similarity, saying ... "Ben does look so much like Elvis. He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage." She added, "Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny." She even wrote a song about Ben called "Storm and Grace." Storm's his middle name.



He was also a musician ... he even struck a record deal back in 2009 worth $5 million. He's got a couple acting credits under his name, but aside from that, not much else is known about him publicly. He has few social media accounts.

One of the last times he was seen out with the family was during Elvis' 40-year death anniversary during a vigil at Graceland.

Benjamin was just 27.

RIP

Civil rights legend Rep. John Lewis dead at 80

And USA is supposed to be a "civilized" country.
And a "democratic" country.
And a "Christian" country.
And an "allied" country.
And what more ?

As I'm getting older, I think that USA is more a "lying" country. Not doing what they preach...
:P

I believe the lyric is "peter green", as in:

    pe·ter
    /ˈpēdər/

    noun Slang: Vulgar.

    penis.

This calls for a download. Look for it tomorrow. 8)

Oh man.... :( Sad to hear about Peter Green.

I saw Peter Green in 1971 in an unscheduled performance!
It was in Elizabeth, NJ. I had tickets for Quicksilver Messenger
Service. Anyways, the promoter comes out saying the band
will not be performing, and if we want he'll give us a refund.
Then he added that another act would be performing...Peter
Green! YES!! I stuck around for that.
Green had Cozy Powell on drums, Erroneous on bass, and
the violin guy from ELO. The music was very similar to his
"The End Of The Game" album Wild instrumentals!
He revived polite applause and said, "here's one you might
recognize" and proceeded to play "Black Magic Woman"
followed by "A Fool No More."
Incredible show!

Thanks for the Mystery Download.

I just checked Information is not Knowledge and it says indeed Peter Green. I rather trust that than they auto reply I got from searching "Poodle", from where I got that...

...BUT, FZ's words make a case for the pee turning green

FZ, c. September 26, 1984 ("Picture Disc Interview") wrote:

[Yesterday's show] was being videotaped for French television [...]. They wanted [we to play "In France"]. That's the reason they came to do it because "In France" is being released as a single on the continent.

It's not [a direct insult to the French]. It was fair commentary on what Frenchness means to a person who is not French and has to be subjected to Frenchness. It is not a put-down of the French. It is the facts.

Now, I was able to ascertain from some interviews I did in France that the toilet that we're speaking of in the song is referred to in France as The Turkish Toilet. So, if it's a Turkish Toilet, then what's it doing in France? Cause that's all I know from French toilets is the thing with the bombsight and the two footprints where you pull the chain and if you're lucky it doesn't climb up to your ankles when the stuff comes up out of the hole.

But all the stuff in that song is true including The Mystery Blowjob that happened to one of the guys in the band. You know, it started with this Green Fudge coming out of his weeny, and he didn't realize that you could get this disease from sticking it in somebody's mouth. That was 'cause he was a chump. But it did happen in France so it belongs in the song.


Let's assume it is a double entendre...
