Epgold and Bud Glass are not sure where ElvisMatters get their information, and why someone would print something without first checking the facts.
Especially since this person has Bud Glass phone number, e-mail address and the website address where all King's Ransom news is posted.
But what has been printed is malicious lies and is extremely juvenile.
If someone has something negative to say about someone else in the Elvis world, there is usually an agenda or just pure jealousy. Either way it is a disgrace to the Elvis world, and a detriment to Elvis' memory.
EpGold encourage all fans to always consider the source before believing anything they read from websites and publications who regularly spew such swill. You either have character and integrity or you don't. There is no middle ground.
Here is the OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM THE KING'S RANSOM MUSEUM:
The King's Ransom Museum went to Las Vegas with a six month contract at the Imperial Palace Hotel and Casino. They asked us to extend after 6 months, and we agreed to extend our contract for just 3 months in order to weigh out all of our other options.
We had been offered a home at several other major casinos. After our second contract expired, we decided to move to a better location on the strip. The Imperial Palace run was very successful, Tens of thousands of people toured the exhibit.
According to our curator, Jimmy Velvet, (who was there every day), everyone who came through raved about the exhibit. This included several celebrities, including Steve Binder, who produced Elvis' famous 68' Comeback Special for NBC.
The Imperial Palace asked us to reconsider and stay, but we have several offers in venues that would be in the best interest of the museum and better showcase our collection for the fans from around the world to enjoy.
We will be re-opening soon in a state-of-the-art museum that will also include several other incredible surprises for the fans who come through. We also have many more incredible Elvis owned items we are adding from our archives that have never been on display before. Some very historic pieces, including some from the famous Aloha From Hawaii show and some from the 68' comeback special.
We will be sure to make a special announcement with more details in the near future. We at The King's Ransom Museum are very excited about the future and all it holds.

The following news was exclusively published and written yesterday by ElvisMatters - Belgium - Peter Verbruggen:
'A King's Ransom' is no more
Without one single word in the press, almost like a thief in the night, The King's Ransom - an Elvis Presley Museum in Las Vegas filled with Elvis Presley memories - closed down in Las Vegas.
The museum at the Imperial Palace opened its doors in Fall 2009 and charged Elvis fans to see a collection of Elvis owned and Elvis related items.
Apparently, the museum didn't do as good as expected and the plug was pulled less than a year after the star studded opening.
As usual, you read it first at ElvisMatters.com.
