Description: When George Klein was still in eighth grade at Humes High School, he had no idea what place the new student with the guitar - a boy named Elvis - would take in his later life. But when GK (a nickname Elvis gave him) first heard this boy sing, he knew Elvis Presley was special. Klein accompanied Elvis' steep career, savored the wild life in show business and remained a close and loyal friend to the "King Of Rock'n'Roll" until his premature death in 1977. Elvis - My Best Friend is a frank and entertaining book that opens up a whole new perspective on the Elvis phenomenon and the early days of rock and roll. George Klein writes very lovingly about his friend - about who the king of rock'n'roll really was and how he behaved when he was not in the limelight. This fascinating book tells of the crossing of cultural boundaries and the music business in one of the most turbulent phases in American history. Background information and anecdotes from a contemporary witness who experienced everything first hand. From the parties at Graceland and encounters with Hollywood greats, to the arguments with Elvis 'infamous manager Colonel Tom Parker, to worrying about proper appreciation of Elvis' legacy, GK has always been a loyal friend of the King.
