Elvis Presley: The Inner Elvis - A Psychological Biography Of Elvis Aaron Presley

(1996/Hyperion) First Edition (15.000 printed), Paperback, English, 22.5 x 15 cm, 480 pages plus 8 pages of b/w photos.(Bear Family Records)
A psychological investigation into the life of Elvis Aaron Presley reveals the psychic trauma fueling Elvis's rise to superstardom and his subsequent fall into strange obsessions, behaviors, and addictions.

When Elvis was considering plastic surgery on his nose and an intestinal bypass oper-ation, he made his friends go through the surgeries first to see how their bodies react-ed to them. 
Elvis may have slept with Priscilla Presley only once—when they conceived Lisa Marie—because he had an aversion to sleeping with women once they'd had a child. 
Elvis had many strange food obsessions—he wouldn't let anyone touch or breathe on his food before he ate and wouldn't let Lisa Marie have a bite of food from his plate. Elvis and his mother, Gladys, had a lethally enmeshed relationship, one that would stunt Elvis's relationships with women for the rest of his life. 
Contrary to what the press was told, Elvis did everything to avoid being drafted. Elvis's parents both had drinking problems, and his father often beat his mother. Elvis was so concerned about this that it was hard for him to leave his mother alone with Vernon. 
Elvis coerced President Nixon into giving him a Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs badge, which he wanted so he could transport guns and pills across state and international borders. 
The Inner Elvis is a unique and inspired look at the complicated, captivating, and vulnera-ble human being behind the Elvis Presley legend—one that will shock and surprise even those readers who thought they already knew everything there was to know about the king.

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)!
