4.0 out of 5 stars Elvis - What Happened?, 4 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elvis, What Happened? (Mass Market Paperback)
I am a mad Elvis fan and finally got round to buying this book after reading nearly every other book out there on Elvis.

To be honest I knew it wouldn't show Elvis in a good light by any means but the main reason I bought it was because it was written by people who knew him well and whilst Elvis was still alive (just).

In my opinion Red and Sonny West (who were the main sources for the book) are open about their feelings and appear to be critical of themselves as well as Elvis.

If you are an Elvis fan I believe this book is essential reading and the saddest thing is that they talk of Elvis in the present tense when we know what happened only a few weeks later.

Even if only half of this book is partly lies or exploitative it is still worth reading in order to give a different perspective.

One thing it doesn't change though is the fact that Elvis is a one off who will never be surpassed.

We all knew that elvis was prescription drug dependant. And he also became into other drugs as well. I am a great elvis fan. Always have been.always will be,he will always be the king,as far as I am concerned,elvis always tried to hide his drug dependancy,but it came out in the end,but he was still the best singer,and always will be,his music will always live on,but it was true he was dependant on drugs.
