But in 1988, after an adolescent flutter with cocaine, she made a definite adult statement about the life she wants to live. Three months pregnant, she arranged to be married secretly and, after a Caribbean honeymoon, settled down in the Los Angeles area with the father of her child, a 23-year-old bass player named Danny Keough. Sober, dependable, well-educated, Danny has nothing in common with Elvis except his love of music—and of Lisa. Friends claim he has signed away all rights to her inheritance. "Danny's got a lot of self-respect," Lisa says. "He's really out to do his own thing."
So is Lisa, and right now her thing is having a home and a family. If she has resisted pressures to follow her father into show business, she also seems determined to shun the tortuous path of self-indulgence that led him to an early grave.
