Elvis Presley the King of Rock and Roll, what more can we say, he captured a generation, and embodied the spirit of America through his music. Still, it was the image that we hold on to as well.
There are still annual Elvis Impersonation contests every year across the nation, where the best of the best then go to Las Vegas to compete. No, none of these people are the King, and yet, they take us back to a time when life was much different, don’t they?
What if I told you of a book that could take you back in time to the days when the King of Rock and Roll lived with energy and essence? There is such a book you know, one I’ve certainly come to love over the years. It still sits on my shelves today. The book is:
“Elvis – A Celebration in Pictures” by Time Life Books; Editor Charles Hirshberg. Time Inc. Warner Books, New York, NY, 1995.
You will be utterly amazed at the pictures of Elvis in his youth, who looked like just an average teen ager, then you will see the transition into a young stud that put all his female followers in a deep love trance. As this book takes you throw the best years and the toughest ones of his life, you will feel as if you were there, with him every step of the way.
This book brings him alive again, and if you do not have a copy of this book for your library at home, buy one. It will bring back the memories of one of America’s greatest eras, through undoubtedly one of its greatest icons; Elvis, he lives on!
