The King and Dr. Nick: What Really Happened ...

July 06, 2009 | Book

Dr. Nick's anticipated memoir "The King and Dr. Nick: What Really Happened with Elvis and Me" now has a publisher, cover and release date. The publisher is Thomas Nelson and the hardcover book is due for release on 16 February 2010. It contains 256 pages.

Book synopsis:

The truth about Elvis's death from the doctor who spent eleven years as "the King's" personal physician, father-figure, and confidant - "Dr. Nick."

Dr. Nichopoulos spent a decade with Elvis on the road and at Graceland, trying to maintain the precarious health of one of the world's greatest entertainers. But on August 16, 1977, he found himself in the ambulance with Elvis on that fateful last trip to the ER. He signed the death certificate.

From that day forward, Dr. Nick became the focus of a media witch hunt that threatened his life and all but destroyed his professional reputation. Now, for the first time, Dr. Nick reveals the true story behind Elvis's drug use and final days-not the version formed by years of tabloid journalism and gross speculation. Put aside what you've learned about Elvis's final days and get ready to understand for the first time the inner workings of "the king of rock n' roll."

Authors: Dr. George Nichopoulos (Author), Rose Clayton Phillips (Contributor)
