The Belgian fanclub Elvis Matters announces the release of a new book, titled "Memories - Sweetened thru the ages just like wine", subtitled "On the road with Elvis & John Wilkinson". "Memories" holds over a hundred rare illustrations and takes you back to the days when Elvis filled showroom after showroom. The 160 page book brings back to life the many memories of Elvis Presley's friend and rhythm guitarist John Wilkinson. Author of the English book is Peter Verbruggen, who also wrote "Elvis - King of Belgium".
For the release of this book, Elvismatters joined forces with the Danish fanclub "Elvis Unlimited". The book is all but an encyclopedia. Instead, it's a bundle of memories, as John Wilkinson remembers his years with Elvis. It's illustrated with unique documents, news paper clippings and reviews.
First presentation of the book is on Saturday, January 10th 2004 during the Belgian Birthday Party in Sint-Niklaas (near Antwerp). Guest of honor is, of course, John Wilkinson himself. The second presentation of the book - in presence of John - takes place on Saturday January 17th in Denmark, and on the 18th in Sweden. For information visit the Elvis Matters Website.
