Case Study 54

This is Elvis Presley (January 8, 1935 ā€“ August 16, 1977). Elvis was a world famous rock and roll artist. “His energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across color lines during a transformative era in race relations, led him to both great success after initial controversy.” (Wikipedia)

Elvis was drafted into the US Army in 1958, serving as a cavalry scout in Germany. He was discharged as a sergeant in 1960. He produced 41 albums and appeared in 33 movies. He was nicknamed “The King of Rock n Roll.”

This is Nathan Gale (September 11, 1979 – December 8, 2004). He was the man who shot Dimebag Darrell ( Case Study 47 ) while the latter was performing on stage. He killed three other people and wounded two before being killed by a police officer who responded to the call.

Gale was a loner who had played football in high school. He served in the USMC where he received psychological treatment and was released after one year. See this posting for more information.
