Marty Lacker About GK's Book
By Marty Lacker, Jan 9, 2010

Speaking of books and some of the fiction that has been written in regards to Elvis and his world, I was just sent an excerpt from George Klein's book by a fan in Ireland that was on the Fox News' Fox &friends website and in all my years I have never heard such outright lies. Basically what George has done has taken part of my description of the night I talked Elvis into recording at American Studios in January, '69 and replaced me with himself plus some unbelievable and totally untrue embellishments. He has even conveniently added a couple of dead people to the scene who cannot contradict him by saying Tom Diskin and Freddy Bienstock was at the Graceland dining room table when he said he told Elvis about Chips Moman and got him to record there. Diskin and Bienstock were not there.

He also said Priscilla and Esposito were at the table and they weren't and he completely leaves out the part that I had talked to Elvis about it in what is known as the Jungle Room before everyone went into the dining room, in which he was silently present along with Sonny,Lamar and Felton Jarvis. He even put himself sitting next to Elvis at the table when it was actually me sitting there after I called Chips at home and talked to him about recording Elvis with Felton standing next to me.

Sadly what Klein forgets that there were witnesses to the whole event who will further make him a liar. If this is a sample of what is in his book, I suggest that if you really want to waste your money on it,look for it in the Fiction section of your favorite bookstore.

i also waited for a long time for this book and was disappointed. it seems that every career move, every record, every girlfriend, in fact everything in elvis life george had an influence, its a good job george was on the scene isnt it or we might never had had such a brilliant artist as elvis presley!!!! talk about blowing your own trumpet.

I have waited many years for George Klein to tell his story. Now I have read it, I am not disappointed. George has one of the distinctions of knowing and being with Elvis from High school till the end. The other two being Red West & Marty Lacker. His book is both affectionate and humerous as well as containing great detail. It also gives us an insight into Georges own life and Elvis' influence on it. Great book, great value from Amazon.

I have had the pleasure of meeting George Klein on two occasions, he is a very friendly guy with an excellent knowledge of Elvis Presley thanks to his long term friendship with Elvis from his schooldays right up to the time when Elvis died in 1977. He broadcasts on Elvis Radio direct from Graceland in Memphis every Friday afternoon, the show is full of interesting facts and of course plenty of Elvis music. This book is an excellent read for all Elvis fans who are looking for plenty of background facts from someone who was his friend for so many years.

A very entertaining, interesting, and quite emotional read, but is well worth anyone buying it who has interest in Elvis like I do. A very welcome addition to my extensive collection of books and memorabilia.

a good read by a man who knew Elvis right back in the days of Humes High School-one of the few that has never betrayed him or spoken impolitely about Elvis,this is a must read for me.
