‘Nobody wants to strike, they don’t do it for fun’: Richard Hawley on his National Theatre debut, Thatcherism and the Tories
I was in ’ere last night!” says a hungover Richard Hawley as I greet him in his favourite Sheffield pub: Fagan’s. It’s a cold January afternoon and the musician is standing at the bar, chatting to the owners of 40 years, his friends Barbara and Tom. It’s a classic old folk club, with wooden-panelled walls dotted with picture frames and Guinness memorabilia. Despite his claim of being worse for wear, the 56-year-old is looking dapper, the rock and roll bridge between Elvis and Alex Turner. He’s wearing a tartan bomber jacket, handmade by a friend in the US. His dark hair is slicked back. He’s grateful to still have this asset; “I’m quite relieved,” he laughs, “most of the lads I went to school with look like footballs with eyes!” Hawley quit hard liquor a few years ago, but that doesn’t mean he can

Priscilla Presley Disputes Late Daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s Will Making Daughter Sole Trustee

Priscilla Presley Disputes Late Daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s Will Making Daughter Sole Trustee
Priscilla Presley has filed a petition to dispute the will her late daughter, Lisa Marie Presley. The documents, filed Thursday, question an amendment to Lisa’s living trust that removes Priscilla and her manager as trustees and replaces them with Lisa’s children, Riley Keough and Benjamin Keough. Benjamin is deceased.

Lisa, the only child of Elvis Presley, died in January after suffering a cardiac arrest. The Los Angeles County coroner has not yet confirmed a cause of death. As she did not file a will, her living trust serves to distribute her assets after her death.

Since the 1990s, Priscilla and her manager Barry Siegel have been the heads of a trust that manages the Presley estate, which includes the intellectual property of Elvis. Priscilla alleges that her daughter made the amendment in 2016 without delivering the amendment to her first, as required by the trust’s terms. It was also never notarized or witnessed.
