Elvis' death the 16th

Elvis died on the 16th. Tne new movie about his relationship with "colonel" Tom Parker is terrific. I met Elvis when I was 15, he 19, just beginning to get started. He was very friendly until he became superfamous. Then he was out of reach. I still love him and his music. That's me next to him.

Happy birthday Elvis

I was lucky to get to know Elvis in his early years of performing. He even kissed me.
Later after he died, I resurrected my memories and wrote a book about him. See all about it in the My Books section. My favorite song of his was "Trying to Get to You." That's me to Elvis' immediate left.  Read More

Elvis Presley and I

On the anniversary of Elvis' death I once again mention that I knew Elvis in the early days and wrote about that time in "Tryin' To Get To You", my favorite song. I saw a good DVD called Road Show in which first Elvis sings a song, then Johnny Cash (who used to open for him) -- all from the early days. Read More

Elvis Presley, still the king

January 8th was Elvis' birthday. He would have been 75. Turner Classic Movies showed two of his tours. Both were great, showing him in top form. He had a voice that is so much better than others today. He also is a whole lot sexier. I enjoy him just as much today as I did when I was 15 and first saw him in Texas. See http://www.elvispresley-thebook.com/ for my book about him. Read More
