According to musician, Brandon Howard, Keough struggled with being part of the famous Presley family.

"That kind of pressure is definitely a part of what happened," he told People.com.

He continued, "It's a tough thing when you have a lot of pressure with your family and living up to a name and an image. It's a lot of pressure. It's almost like you're pressured into having to be a musician, having to be an actor. It was good for him to go around the world and discover himself and have his own friends. You never know what triggers it. You never know ... It's so random."

Elvis Presley died on August 16, 1977, at the age of 42.
