From the Foreword by Ed Bonja:
When I thought about writing this book about Elvis, I asked myself what I could possibly add to the volumes that have already been written about Elvis Presley - The King Of Rock 'N' Roll. Elvis has been researched and analyzed by so many writers that we now know about every step he ever took, every song he ever sang, every girl he ever dated, every breath he ever took, every word he ever spoke, and on and on and on.... When I looked further into this situation, I found that the large majority of those who have written books about Elvis didn't know him, never met him, never even saw him in person - either on stage or off, and, certainly, never took a photograph of him. Well, that made me feel that I did, indeed, have something to write about Elvis which almost none of the other book writers have. I met Elvis; I knew Elvis and spoke with him on many occasions over the years; I photographed Elvis in the 1970's as the 'Official Photographer for the Elvis Presley Show',  I worked as the Elvis Presley Show's Tour Manager,
I saw Elvis in person perform over 1000 concerts and the list could go on and on, but you get the idea! In any case, the photographs I have taken of Elvis will comprise, by far, the largest part of this book and show Elvis in many wonderful ways. My photographs of Elvis have been used on dozens of Album Covers, Single Sleeves, CD's, and for nearly everything that required a photo of Elvis in the 70's. Wow!
I got so excited about this possibility that I am now thinking in terms of 'series' of Elvis Books. ...and so I began!

Ed Bonja was the official Photographer and Tour Manager for the Elvis Presley Show from September 1970 through may 1, 1977. His photographs were used on Elvis' Album covers, Posters, Photo Albums, buttons, etc during the 1970's, and are still being used by RCA-BMG on CD releases today, with the latest being used on the 'Moody Blue' CD remake.

Elvis Aaron Presley - The King of Rock'n'Roll

(January 8, 1935, Tupelo, MS – August 16, 1977, Memphis, TN) 
 
Elvis Presley (full name Elvis Aaron Presley) is the most outstanding personality in showbiz ever since, and the most popular entertainer the world has ever seen! His musical influence within music history and its following generations of musicians is still unbroken. His huge 'Blast-Off' in the mid-1950s, the rising star from a simply called 'Hillbilly Cat' (at Sun Records) to a lascivious Rock'n'Roll singer with charisma, a male sex symbol (then at RCA Victor) soon popularized him as "The King of Rock'n'Roll" or simply "The King".
 
His first cut within his tremendous career happened between October 1958 and March 1960 while Elvis was on duty with the U.S. Army and stationed in Germany. It was there in 1959 when he met his later wife Priscilla Beaulieu at age 14. Elvis and Priscilla married on May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas (divorce in 1973). Elvis evolved into an all-around entertainer after his Army service and started starring in Hollywood films. 33 movies in total, including the two concert documentaries 'That's The Way It Is' and 'On Tour'. He again shook the world with his 1968 NBC Comeback TV Special after his movie period without any stage appearances.
 
This TV special included the first ever unplugged session presented together with musicians from the early days such as Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. 1973 saw THE TV mega event at all: Elvis Presley, 'Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite'! Elvis' Honolulu appearance, the first time that a show was broadcasted worldwide via satellite! He was ahead of his time! Elvis Presley had 148 US single chart hits, including some so-called double-sider when A- and B-side both hit the charts like his 1956 smash 'Don't Be Cruel b/w Hound Dog', plus 15 EP hits between 1956 and 1977. Two billion of sold media and sound carriers by Elvis Presley is the estimated number! He received 14 Grammy nominations until 1978 and three Grammy for his Gospel interpretations. Elvis was the youngest artist when honored with the Bing Crosby Award (Lifetime Achivement Award) in 1971.
 
He is presented in 5 Halls of Fame (Rock'n'Roll, Rockabilly, Country, Blues and Gospel). Six of his song interpretations are collected in the Grammy Hall of Fame. On top of it all Elvis Presley got the most gold and platinum records and a Diamond-Award. He definetly is the 'Best selling solo artist in U.S. History' (RIAA – Record Industry Association of America)! Elvis Presley CD albums, vinyl records as LPs or singles at 45rpm - Bear Family offers a huge number of various Elvis Presley CDs, vinyl-LPs and 45rpm singles, vinyl- and CD box sets, books and mags, DVDs, unique and extraordinairy memorabilia! Let's say it in the words of one of Elvis sixties album title: There is "Something For Everybody"! And hey, you name it! Elvis Presley is the King of Rock'n'Roll, the biggest icon in showbusiness, and a great person who lives on forever!
Bear Family Records treats his legacy with the most respect and an optimum capacity of expert knowledge.
