Oh dear, time to dust of the "Larry - On Tour" straight jacket. Is he flying in on a plane or are angels from heaven dropping him off?

I agree with Bryan, it, uh he, was a friend of Elvis, not a creep at all and a very interesting story teller. No yawning involved when he rambles on, uh tells his feet on the ground stories... I especially loved his apperances in Bill Bixby's alive docus, which I unfortunately erased for the Teletubbies (at least the tape was interesting to my kids then).

Larry is different alright, but you know what y'all: Elvis faced the same ignorant reactions about his spiritual quest during his life time as you're doing right now.. If you think Larry is a weirdo, you think the same about Elvis, because they shared the same spiritual interest & passion. Larry was a loyal friend, is a great story teller and if you don't understand their common journy, than don't judge.. See ya.

Met the guy about 2 years ago in Belgium. He's really OK and no weirdo at all. A very kind person and very respectful concerning Elvis. As RJ wrote : a great story teller, not at all seeking for sensational declarations, on the contrary. My deepest respect Mr.Geller.God bless! Always El.

I really can´t understand why people has problems with Larry Geller. I think he´s allright. However, I´m not sure what to make of this new book. I really like his previous book "If I Can Dream", but I don´t think there´s a need for a new book. The spiritual side of Elvis is already been discussed in "If I Can Dream".

What I can say is that I know Larry Geller personally, I've been with him a couple of times in Memphis, in 1997 and 2002. I've read his book "If I Can Dream" and even though I'm not making plans to buy this one new book by him, I don't like to read bad stuff about him, just like I don't like to read bad stuff on Elvis. Larry is a very nice man, that's what I can say about him. I've also attended a "Conversations on Elvis" at Humes High School, many people of Elvis world were there and I can say that what Larry said meant the most to me. And don't forget, like someone said below here, if you think Larry is weirdo, than you have to realise Elvis was weirdo, too. I know that Elvis liked Larry and after I met him, I can honestly say I understand why. Larry has kind eyes, an easy smile and speaks with you with ease and humbleness. He hasn't said, like Joe Esposito did, for instance, that he is "Elvis best friend." Larry was never arrogant to say something like that. Sure, he could have spared everybody from some of the most outlandish stories he had with Elvis. But I don't doubt they did occur. After all, Elvis had and shared the same interests as Larry. Never forget about that. That's why they instantly clicked when they met. Elvis had other hairdressers before.

I dont think anyone has problems with Larry personally. He seems like a nice guy. Its just that this is his third book, all basically with the same theme (His Spiritual Journey, If I can Dream, etc). Story once told, that's enough. What is the point of another book?
