Pål Granlund

Just five years after discovering Elvis Presley in 1960, Pål Granlund established the Flaming Star Fan Club in Norway. His activities with this well-respected organisation gave him the opportunity not only to see Elvis perform live over fifty times, but also to meet him on five occasions. In more recent years, Pål has published some of the best books on Elvis' career and output. These include Stein Erik Skar's Elvis: The Concert Years, 1969-1977 (1997), Trevor Simpson's three Best Of British volumes The HMV Years 1956-1958 (2013), The RCA Years 1957-1958 (2014), The RCA Years 1959-1960 (2015) and, in 2016, How RCA Brought Elvis To Europe by Sigbjørn Stabursvik and Hans Otto Engvold.

British author David English has been collaborating with Pål Granlund on multiple Elvis books since 2012. A fan since he was twelve-years-old, David English has helped produce some of the very finest illustrated studies of specific events in Elvis' post-Army career. In order of publication, these include Welcome Home Elvis 1960 (2012), From Memphis To Hollywood (2012), Summer Of '61 (2013), Memphis To Nashville '61 (2014) and Rock Around The Bloch! (2015). Taking Care Of Business: In A Flash (2016) represents David's first foray into Elvis' later years.

The third person involved with Pål's publishing is Paul Richardson. Since 2009, Paul has used his research and writing skills - he has a master's degree in English from Oxford and a doctorate from Durham - to good effect by contributing regular reviews, essays and interviews to the quarterly magazine, 'Elvis: The Man & His Music' as well as editing volumes of Erik Lorentzen's 'Elvis Files' series. Paul has also collaborated with David and Pål on 2014's Memphis To Nashville '61, and further editorial support last year during the production of Rock Around The Bloch! and Change Of Habit.
