Since the mid 1950's, the name Bill E. Burk was synonymous with authoritative journalism about the life and career of Elvis Aaron Presley.

Bill E. Burk was a native Memphian whose fascinating background is the stuff of a "Boys Own World Annual":
- an international pilot with more than 9000 hours logged
- a standout athlete in three sports
- a retired lieutenant colonel from the Air National Guard who served in two wars - Korea and Vietnam

In addition, as a journalist, Bill ("007") has written countless articles about his "friend", Elvis Aaron Presley, a friendship that stretched from the 1950s to Elvis' untimely death in August 1977.

Apart from his books about The King, Bill and his wife Connie were the energy behind the quarterly magazine, "Elvis World", which ran for over 20 years. Elvis World was renowned around the world for its honest and accurate reporting about the King of Rock & Roll.

Bill sadly passed away on 24 April 2008.
