FIRST A BUS & NOW A HOUSE - Remember the false stories built up around “that
bus” being owned and used by Elvis! Well now there is a house in Las Vegas that is being
touted as once owned by Elvis, or at least where he would stay?

First of all there's a post on the FECC telling how the posters friend had been on a trip to Las
Vegas organised by Elvis Matters and while there, the club's president told the everyone that
Elvis once owned a house in Vegas in 1977? This claim certainly grabbed our attention and
we went looking for more details.

The house is known as “The Elvis House” and while the claims that Elvis owned the home in
1977 is totally false, another claim about the same house is that it was actually owned by the
International and then the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas and amongst other celebrities, it’s
claimed that Elvis and his entourage would stay at the house while he was performing at the
Hotel between 1969 and 1974 when the Hotel sold the home.

The house was owned by a violinist named, Joseph Macchiaverna who later sold the home
to Michael Michaels, who was an Elvis IMP and makes you wonder if this is where the claims
of Elvis once living in the home were first hatched? The IMP sold the home in 2006 to it’s
current owner who is now looking to sell the home and is now getting media attention due to
the Elvis connection?

Now then, we have never heard of Elvis having some holiday home in Las Vegas and so we
went to Marty Lacker and asked him if there was any truth to these claims? This is what Marty
said about the house; “Elvis did not own a house in Vegas and while the hotel could have
owned a home, Elvis did not stay there. He always stayed at the hotel while performing there.
First on the 29th floor when it first opened and then when they finished the big suite on the
30th floor he moved into it.”

So not really surprise there from Marty and another example of somebody making some fake
story to make themselves out to be important, living somewhere Elvis once lived. It’s not the
first time this type of crap has been created and it sure won’t be the last....sadly! (

Thanks for the post Joe, guess whom ever owns the place needed some extra
"flash" to get interest for the house. It's all about the money, you know...
Elvis did know some people who lived in Vegas, he might have gone somewhere
to "get away from the hotel and being stir crazy" though those times were usually with him driving a car with a girl friend beside him, but who knows. Not me.

Yes, Elvis did lease that house for 6 months from the person who owned the house before Joseph Macchiaverna. He did so while performing at the Hilton. It was a nice private property (4 acres) before the lot was subdivided and other buildings placed on it. It is unknown how much time he did spend on the property.
