Elvis Presley: My Years With Elvis And The Colonel by Charles Stone

(2009/Praytome) Hardcover, 21x30 cm, English, 124 pages of notes, rare photos & memorabilia in b&w and color.

"This book is dedicated to Elvis Presley for showing us all that what we do with our lives will be our legacy;
and to my dear friend and mentor, Colonel Tom Parker, who taught me that anything is possible if you only believe - and if you're a good enough snowman."

Foreword by Sam Thompson

I am so pleased and honored to have been asked by my old and valued friend, Charlie Stone, to write the foreword  to his book about his days with  the Elvis Presley Show - Elvis and the Colonel. I met Elvis in November of 1972 through my sister, Linda, who was dating him at the time. I was an officer with the Shelby County Sheriff's Department in Memphis, and Elvis and I quickly became friends. Elvis was a good friend of my Sheriff in the department, Roy Nixon; and in the Spring of 1973, Roy informed me that Elvis wanted me to go on a concert tour with him. A two-week leave was arranged for me; and that was the beginning of my touring years with Elvis: whenever there was a tour, I would get a leave to work security on the tour. In July of 1976, I left the department and went to work for Elvis on a full-time basis, as a personal bodyguard and tour advance man, providing security for Elvis at Graceland, his homes in California and on all the concert tours,including hotel and airport security.

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.
