" A reprint of this book first published in 1993. Build as a conversation between some of Elvis' friends : Lamar Fike, Marty Lacker and his double first cousin Billy Smith. This book gives a better understanding of what it was to be around Elvis and why Lamar was not the most trustable source as far as Elvis' life. Particularly moving is Billy Smith's narration of Elvis's final years when he and his wife were almost the only remaining friends around him, the other guys being much younger and mainly employees. A big and powerful book. "
" Nicely written and I like how it makes the reader feel they are apart of the interview. You can see their anger towards the Col. and Priscilla "
" an 8, again I like Allanna's style, i also felt i was involved in the interview, which went deeper than the TV and Dvd documentaries I watched, plus the 3 MM, billy Smith, Lacker and Fike chat about the same incidents , people but dont always agree. good value for money. MB. "
