Elvis: The King Revealed

Available in either February or March 2006 is the 10 CD edition of the CD audiobook "Elvis: The King Revealed". Already available was the 3 CD edition. Synopsis: "'I believe the key to happiness is someone to love, something to do, and something to look forward to.' Elvis Presley From the city where the gods themselves were born, Memphis, came the most noteworthy of them all--loved by millions, who gave generously and possessed an utter devotion to his mother and his music. This god, hidden yet revealed, rose to become the adorned and unstoppable Elvis, The King of Rock 'n' Roll. Those who knew him before he grew into his kingship would have called him shy. But once the spotlight shone on this high school outcast, there emerged a voice that brought the world from its slumber and set its heart beating to the tempo of Rock 'n' Roll. Listen to Dixie Locke Emmons, Elvis' high school sweetheart, as she shares some of the memorable details of Elvis' life before the days of his stardom. Dick Clark, Kenny Rogers, The Doors' Ray Manzarek, and of course, Elvis' drummer D.J. Fontana speak of his television years, of his "morally indecent" gyrations, and his raw, rock sound. According to lifelong friends Joe Esposito and Charlie Hodge, The Righteous Brothers' Bill Medley, Glen Campbell, and others, it was Girls, Cadillacs, and Graceland that fed the King. But, it was gospel music, trips around the world as a member of the United States Army, his marriage to the beautiful Priscilla Beaulieu, and his return to Las Vegas that molded him into the god he had become."

Elvis gave mainly pleasure... something that most gods do not. The cause war and destruction... so in my book Elvis is much more worth than any god. That's why I write Elvis with a capital :-)

As accurate as history can provide it is correct that Elvis always refused to be called a 'God'. This would rightfully so as as powerful he was over his music and audience, he knew the order of things. We should as Elvisfans should always refer to him as the "King of Rock and Roll". Elvis made is possible! I was there from his beginning to see his dawn on the music scene and his evolution. Now... he is BiggerThan Life and his music library is testimony to the accolades due this great man.

Elvis was FAR from being GOD! He must not have liked being called a king; because at 2 of the 12 concerts that I attended,a lady walked to the edge of the stage and handed him a rather beautiful crown. He said ; thank you. The lady told him to put it on. He said,"No; thank you, honey. I'll accept it. But only God wears a crown. He was a great entertainer and a wonderful person, and also a human . NOT GOD. Dont get me wrong I LOVE THE MAN.

That is going too far calling Elvis "god". I've always enjoyed Elvis music & his movies. But this is getting ridiculas for people to even equate him to "god". It's actually blasphemous to even go that far as calling Elvis a god. Get back to reality, Elvis was merely a human that took his talents to high levels. But to refer to him as god, you better get back to reality fast. He is not a god.
