Lisa Marie Presley has beautiful memories of her superstar father, and even though he fell victim to his own fame she insists it wasn't his fault.

The daughter of ELVIS and Priscilla Presley has recently released a debut album, TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN, and is finding it easier to talk about what led her rocker dad to his inevitable spiral into booze and pills.

She says, "My dad was a larger then life figure, someone I admired in every way. Somebody who was in a situation that would never be easy for anyone.

"I think people in that situation destroy themselves, because they don't know what to do with all the admiration. All the people, the scumbags and idiots that surround you. If you don't have anything to stabilise you, you're gonna go down."
