Calendar Clarification

For you DJ's who prepare your shows a week in advance, you will likely come across information that says that Elvis Presley filed for divorce from wife Priscilla on this date.  We therefore post this for clarification purposes so you can avoid bad information.

(Note:  there are many dates floating around the Internet, and many are incorrect.  Several websites claim that Presley filed for divorce on January 8, 1973.  Here are the facts:  A property agreement was drawn up and signed by both Elvis and Priscilla on August 15, 1972, as shown above.  The divorce was filed on August 18, 1972 in Santa Monica, California, according to the books 'Understanding Elvis:  Southern Roots Vs. Star Image' by Susan Doll and 'The 20th Century O-z:  Dictionary of World Biography' by Frank N. Magill, as well as 'Turner Classic Movies'; the divorce was finalized on October 9, 1973 at the Los Angeles Superior Court in Santa Monica, according to the newspaper 'The Los Angeles Times' and the book 'Icons of Rock:  An Encyclopedia of the Legends Who Changed Music Forever', edited by Scott Schinder and Andy Schwartz.)
