Elvis: My Best Man
By

Rating
When George Klein was in the eighth grade, he couldn t have known how important the new kid with the guitar the boy named Elvis would become in his life. But from the first time GK (as he was nicknamed by Elvis) heard this kid sing, he knew that Elvis Presley was someone extraordinary. In this heartfelt, entertaining and affectionate memoir, George Klein writes candidly about their friendship, which began at school and continued through Elvis s rise to fame and the wild swirl of his tumultuous life, right up until the singer s tragic death. Writing with the authority of someone who was in the midst of it all, from the good times at Graceland to hanging out with Hollywood stars and butting heads with Elvis s iron-handed manager, Colonel Tom Parker, GK reveals who the King of Rock n Roll really was and how he acted when the stage lights were off. Full of anecdotes and first-hand accounts of some of the most defining moments in Elvis s life, this book captures the true essence of the man behind the music. It is a fascinating chronicle of boundary-breaking and music-making through one of the most intriguing and dynamic stretches of American history.
