Yes Kelly, Red and his wife arrived to attend Elvis' wedding only to be told he was not invited.....that was the Colonel's decision, not Elvis'. I doubt if Elvis knew that had been done.
As far as Lamar is concerned, he may have been the brunt of everyone's fat jokes but his mouth wasn't the best to everyone else either and for sure still isn't!
I would not wish cancer on anyone for any reason. My father in law died of lung cancer and my cousin died (at 24) of Leukemia. Cancer is a dignity robbing heartless killer.
KPM, was literally going to write the same, my nan has cancer and she suffered for a little while - it's not a nice thing (she has had it for a year). Wouldn't wish it upon anyone, not even my worst enemy. Sorry to hear about your father in law and cousin.
Ladies, He's mine
I don't have much respect for Lamar but nor do I wish him any harm. Yes, cancer is a terrible desease to have to fight. I do wish him all the best luck in his fight.
Ok, Revelations is a good book, no doubt quite a few truths in it but remember...it's not a bible! Neither are all the other "most researched" books - Careless Love, Last Train To Memphis etc.etc.etc....they are all every last one of them strictly ONE-SIDED! Anyone who believes in these books without doubt either badly wants to believe everything in them or have no minds of their own and are just as bad as those they accuse of wearing rose-coloured glasses and swear Wanda Hill knows all....just on opposite corners.
That's easy to answer....where's Elvis' side of these? I haven't seen his take in any of them??????
How could any biography of Elvis have his side of things???
He never discussed his life or great issues publicly. Oh, and he carked it 30 years ago no less!
Any book that purported to give Elvis' side would be pure speculation at best. To call Guralnick's efforts "one sided" is grossly unfair, IMO. There was nothing in these books that was sensationalistic or inaccurate either.
Getlo - cute'n'cuddly
Its true no book could give Elvis's side only he could give it. He supposedly wanted to call his bio if he ever wrote one-"Through My Eyes"
I think it might be good to remember every now and then that he would have had a side to weight in against all the books, interviews, videos and forums.
The central figure of all the talk- does not have a voice in it. So as we go about deciding -what he meant, what he did, what he took, who he loved, who he hated, what his medical history was, and why he was who he was it might be nice to remember his side is missing. The fact that he will never tell it does not negate the fact he would have one. I see nothing unfair or outlandish about remembering he can't tell his version of his own life.
"I have learned never to ridicule any man's opinion, however strange it may seem."
And I am sure it took him a lot of time to collect everything and then put it all together in a book.
I gotta disagree with you on this one.Careless Love and Last Train are the two most respected books ever done on Presley.Written by an accomplished journalist who has nothing but admiration and devotion to Elvis.He's a self proclaimed fan.The credibility of his books has never been questioned.He was able to write objectively in spite of his admiration for Elvis.Careless Love is depressing because that what the reality was.He just didnt hide or gloss over anything.
