Elvis Presley – Desert Storm: The Shattering Of A Myth!

A new book entitled “Elvis Presley – Desert Storm: The Shattering Of A Myth!” is scheduled for release on April 25th, 2005. This A5 format softcover book will have 225 pages and feature two of Keith Alverson’s never-before-seen photo-graphs from the Closing Show. Fort Baxter’s 2 disc set “Desert Storm” will be the primary focus but fifty pages have been allocated to the 1974 “Elvis Summer Festival” August performances. Important contributors to the project are Mike Eder, known for his work with Joseph Tunzi, and EPFC of Great Britain member Dennis Berry. Mr. Berry’ account of what he witnessed during “Desert Storm” is compelling and a must-read. For more information about this book you can visit the author’s website.

The author states on his homepage that he is a hardcore Elvis fan, and that this book will "prove" that Elvis wasn't druged out of mind during this infamous Las Vegas closing concert in September 1974. Darrin Memmer tried to do the same with his book "Elvis In Concert - The 1977 CBS Television Special" from 2001, which claimed that Elvis was drug free even in this late phase of his life. I believe these whitewash books are just as uninteresting as the former scandal books. Elvis was neither a saint, nor a devil. Isn't time to face the music and analyze Elvis as the complex and very talented human beeing that he really was...?

Probably another opportunity for the media and critics to slag off Elvis - "The Shattering of a Myth". The book will probably generate more publicity, all be it negative, than the recent chart entry achievments. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think so. One day, they'll wake up to the fact that Elvis was a human being, and had good and bad times like the rest of us.

The concerts from those shows are often painful to listen to because of Mr P's incoherent waffling. BUT, he was in such great voice at the time - and the opening night still leaves me gobsmacked - and I do feel like clipping the audience around the ear for not being more responsive! Perhaps this season adds to the theory that when an artiste isn't having a great time personally he can, at least, use it in his work. I hope that the book isn't an "Elvis was off his face" offering for 225 pages as I'm sure there's a much more interesting tale to tell here.
