8/12/06 Elvis insiders Conference
I'm not going to this , but I wish I was. Check out the guest list
I'd be curious enough to buy a dvd of the Q &A session with some of them like Linda Thompson and James Burton, Nancy Rooks in particular. I did Elvis week once, it was too intense for me, too crowded. I like to go in June but that means I don't get to see this stuff like I have in blue below. Anyone at TCB world attending ?
Singer Pat Boone, who knew Elvis professionally and personally, will share his special memories of Elvis, some of which he has never discussed publicly; Actress, poet, Academy Award nominated songwriter and former girlfriend of Elvis, Linda Thompson, will share her unique perspective on Elvis in her first-ever Elvis Week appearance. Sam Thompson will join us to share memories of his friendship with Elvis and of being a member of his personal staff in the 1970s. Andrew Solt, head of SOFA Entertainment, owner of the Ed Sullivan Show catalog, will screen clips (some previously unreleased) from Elvis's three appearances on the program as a preview of the exciting forthcoming DVD release Elvis: The Ed Sullivan Shows. Joining him in sharing some of the behind-the-scenes history of Elvis on Sullivan will be Jordanaires member Gordon Stoker, who performed with Elvis on all three of his Sullivan appearances. Guitar virtuoso and former Elvis bandmate James Burton will be a guest speaker. Part of the recent Follow That Dream collectors label CD release Made In Memphis is from a private recording Elvis made at Sam's home in November 1972.
