Elvis Presley always dressed for a performance: Lisa Marie

London: King of Rock and Roll Elvis Presley`s daughter Lisa Marie says her father was fanatical about his appearance and always dressed as if he was ready to go onstage.

The `Heartbreak Hotel` singer died in 1977 at the age of 42 and although his daughter was only nine at the time, one of her overriding memories of her father is how fanatical he was about his appearance, reported Contactmusic.

"He was always fully, fully geared up. You`d never see him in his pyjamas coming down the steps, ever. You`d never see him in anything but `ready to be seen` attire. There can be a sort of cheesy take on him, which I don`t always love sometimes - you know, the later years and that whole thing with his white jumpsuit. Now I`m probably over it. But I mean it was kind of running wild for a while. It was a little bit cringe worthy," Marie said.
