$28.75 charge to visit Elvis Presley's grave during vigil upsets fans

It's the 40th anniversary since the death of the King of Rock "N" Roll. Many fans remain convinced that he is in fact still alive, despite all the medical evidence to the contrary.

He died at Graceland on August 16, 1977 after suffering a heart attack.

"In order to keep everyone safe and ensure an enjoyable and meaningful event for all, we have worked closely with local, state and federal security authorities to establish new procedures that have been widely used across the U.S.", Graceland's statement said.

Forty years ago today, Elvis Presley died in his Memphis, Tenn., home. A candlelight vigil was held around 8:30 p.m.

"And what we're trying to (do is) bring the memory of Elvis back to people, that's basically what we're doing".

Making them pay to stand in line for hours and take this walk seems small.

Priscilla Presley is convinced her late ex-husband Elvis wouldn't have overcome his problems even if he had survived his fatal heart attack.

Thompson, who as a girl was only allowed to watch Elvis's television appearances when he was shown from the waist up, said she felt a connection to his lyrics. "There's a price for that as well, to accommodate all the people".

The Presley family told fans this year's vigil is the largest one yet, but for the first time the processional was not free, angering some fans.

"I think that's one of the greatest pop songs ever put to tape - it's absolutely phenomenal on so many levels", Pickerel said.
