Elvis Presley: The World Knows Elvis Presley - But They Don't Know Me - Bruno Tillander

(2014/Premium Publ.) Hardback, english, 21x24 cm, 394 pages, hundreds of rare illustrations;
An interesting portrait which casts a new light on the biggest artist in history!
Elvis Presley was a product of the American social conditions, the mentality of the American South, the attitudes towards weapons and the segregation that permeated the entire American society up until the mid-1960s.
The Southerner Elvis Presley had a weapons fixation, was known to have a temperament, and had a contradictory relationship to the black civil rights movement. He was a reactionary crime-fighter with fictitious role models such as Clint Eastwood’s film character “Dirty Harry”. He supported the Vietnam War and offered President Richard Nixon his services in the fight against communism and left-wing liberal movements. All of these ingredients make Elvis a colorful personality, moving him closer to one of his ideals – the patriot, anti-communist, Republican, gun lobbyist and eternal American icon John Wayne.
Elvis also owned a very extensive and spectacular collection of objects from Nazi Germany, something that until now has been unknown to the general public. He was used by the greedy manager Tom Parker and his network of business contacts in a distasteful way. Elvis was deeply religious, and with the aid of his close friend and spiritual advisor Larry Geller, this book offers an interesting insight into his spiritual faith. The book presents a new and exciting image of Elvis, far from the superficial “Hollywood Elvis” of the silver screen and the official, retouched image of him. This is entertaining reading, an uncensored celebration of a great hero. The book also kills many myths and false after-the-fact stories that have circulated around Elvis for more than 60 years. Introduction by George Klein. Fully illustrated with many unique photos.

Artist description "Presley, Elvis"

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!

Elvis Presley is the King of Rock'n'Roll, the biggest icon in showbusiness, and a great person who lives on forever!
