Elvis: My Best Man: Radio Days, Rock 'n' Roll Nights, and My Lifelong Friendship with Elvis PresleyGeorge Klein and Chuck CrisafulliCrownJanuary 5 2010When George Klein was an eighth grader at Humes High, he couldnt have known how important the new kid with the guitarthe boy named Elviswould later become in his life. But from the first time GK (as he was nicknamed by Elvis) heard this kid sing, he knew that Elvis Presley was someone extraordinary. During Elviss rise to fame and throughout the wild swirl of his remarkable life, Klein was a steady presence and one of Elviss closest and most loyal friends until his untimely death in 1977. In Elvis: My Best Man , a heartfelt, entertaining, and long-awaited contribution to our understanding of Elvis Presley and the early days of rock n roll, George Klein writes with great affection for the friend he knewabout who the King of Rock n Roll really was and how he acted when the stage lights were off. This fascinating chronicle of boundary-breaking and music-making through one of the most intriguing and dynamic stretches of American history overflows with insights and anecdotes from someone who was in the middle of it all. From the good times at Graceland to hanging out with Hollywood stars to butting heads with Elviss iron-handed manager, Colonel Tom Parker, to making sure that Elviss legacy is fittingly honored, GK was a true friend of the King and a trailblazer in the music industry in his own right.
