Since opening as a museum 40 years ago, Graceland has welcomed public tours to countless fans. However, to this day, the upstairs remains off-limits as it was Elvis Presley’s private area in life and remains so 45 years after his death. Despite this, there are Memphis Mafia and close family members still alive who have memories of spending time up there in The King’s lifetime.

One of them is Danny Smith, the son of Elvis’ cousin Billy, who grew at the Memphis mansion as one of Lisa Marie’s childhood friends.

On his YouTube channel Memphis Mafia Kid, he was asked recently: “Did you ever actually sleep at Graceland?”

He replied: “Yes, we spent the night out here several times. A few nights before Elvis showed us our trailer that he got for us, we stayed at Graceland and stayed in Lisa’s room. Lisa wasn’t home at the time.”
