Cause of heart attack[edit]

Unless there's a source that actually links his heart attack to smoking, a statement such as "probably brought on by his cigarette smoking" is unacceptable. There are thousands of other potential triggers for a heart attack, including undiagnosed birth defects and genetics. 68.146.81.123 (talk) 00:06, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

coma period[edit]

I imagine that there are a number of people who would be curious about the coma period, so if there are a few known facts about that period a paragraph would be good. What was the coma like- was he totally comatose for the whole time? What was peoples reaction? Was he in hospital the whole time. What was it like when he died? etc.

The "Black" Elvis ???[edit]

The notion of Elvis Presley calling Jackie Wilson the "Black Elvis" is debatable. Wasn't Elvis Presley the "White Jackie"?Ddlee202257 (talk) 01:35, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
