Mother Priscilla Presley

Priscilla Ann Wagner was born on the 24th May 1945, in the New York City’s borough of Brooklyn, the daughter of the US Navy pilot James Wagner and Anna Lillian Iversen. She is of American nationality and white ethnicity of Norwegian, English, Scottish and Irish descent through her mother’s side. Her father died in a plane accident when she was only six months old, and since the age of three, after her mother remarried to the US Air Force officer Paul Beaulieu, she was raised as Beaulieu.

Due to the nature of her step-father’s job, she spent the majority of her childhood ‘moving from base to base every two or three years’, splitting time between the states of Connecticut, Maine, New Mexico and Texas, and in Wiesbaden, Germany.

Young Priscilla first met Elvis Presley in September 1959, in Bad Nauheim, Germany, where he was serving as a member of the US Army. They began dating almost immediately, and that romance lasted ’til March 1960 when he was sent back to the USA. Although they stayed in contact via telephone, the two didn’t actually meet again before mid-1962 when she flew to Los Angeles, California, to see him.

Priscilla Presley

In May 1963 Priscilla moved into his famous Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee, and after four years of mutual life, the couple married on the 1st May 1967 in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the following year they were blessed with a child, a daughter named Lisa Marie, but in February 1972 they filed for separation, which was legally finalized in October 1973.

Between 1973 and 1976, alongside Olivia Bis, Priscilla successfully ran a fashion clothing boutique in Los Angeles named Bis & Baeu. After Presley’s death in August 1977, Priscilla became the president as well as the chairman of Elvis Presley Enterprises, a commercial entity of The Elvis Presley Trust, formed to manage Graceland.

Under her guidance and leadership, after its big opening in June 1982 Graceland quickly became one of the most popular tourist attractions in the US.

In 1983, Priscilla made her on-camera debut acting appearance in the TV movie “Love Is Forever”, which was followed by the recurring role of Jenna Wade in the television romance drama series “Dallas”, through almost 150 episodes between until 1988 and the show’s six seasons. To greater prominence she came later in 1988, when she starred as Jane Spencer – opposite Leslie Nielsen in the leading role of Frank Drebin – in the crime comedy film “The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!”.

She also appeared in its two sequels – “The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear” in 1991 and “Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult” in 1994.

In 1998, she served as an executive producer for the TV comedy film “Breakfast with Einstein”, in which she also appeared briefly, as well as the biographic drama movie about Elvis Presley entitled “Finding Graceland”. In 2000 she became a member of the board of directors of Metro-Goldwin-Mayer Inc. while in 2005 as an executive producer, she worked on Presley’s compilation album “If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra”. Between 1984 and 2006 Priscilla was in a long-term relationship with Marco Garibaldi.

Career

Alongside his friend and the keyboardist Kyle Hamood, in 2013 Navarone Garibaldi formed the music group Them Guns. The crew expanded shortly afterwards and became a quartet, when the drummer Chris Hudson and the bass guitarist and vocalist Chuck Holiday joined the band. After a number of public performances ‘across west coast markets’, Navarone and Them Guns, for which he serves as the frontman, the guitarist and the main vocalist, came into the limelight in 2015, when three of their songs “Heard It All Before”, “Close Your Eyes” and “Devil’s Eye” were featured in the official soundtrack of Pete Pietrangeli’s independent adventure drama movie “Shut Up and Drive”.

This accomplishment also led them (Guns – pun intended!) to perform at the movie after-screening event at the Tribeca Film Festival in Manhattan, New York. Additionally, Navarone and his band also performed in several of California’s popular night clubs, including The Troubadour and The Viper Room located in the West Hollywood.

In 2017, Garibaldi appeared as Gary Rossington in the Jared Cohn’s biographical documentary movie “Street Survivors: The True Story of the Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash”. In February 2019, they released their debut studio album entitled “From The Shadows“, which produced several hit singles including “Somebody Called the Cops“, “Horoscope” and “Fireworks” followed by an eponymous music video.
