Description

Elvis died on 16 August 1977. He was just 42 years of age and had been the first global superstar of the rock'n'roll era: the King. An eager world followed his every appearance, flocked to his movies and bought his records in the millions. But what was he like as a colleague, as a friend, as a brother, as a lover? Imagine Elvis's relatives, friends, musical colleagues and business associates gathering to remember him and swap stories about him. In this close-up and intimate oral biography, that's just what nearly one hundred and fifty of them do, many of them speaking for the first time.show more
