My Brother Elvis

Neal Biship | The Revealment | Everywhere The Light | Zittelle | Foreword | Introduction | Vision

 

David E. Stanley, Elvis Presley's step brother whom Elvis took under his wing as a young adolescent to work with him on tour in the 70's. My Brother Elvis is a very personal story about Elvis Presley's last years of addiction struggles, the book release coincides with the 39th Anniversary of Elvis' tragic passing at Graceland on August 16, 1977. 

 

 

"I hope that these revelations of my time with Elvis might save others from the pain I suffered during the final years of his life," Stanley says. He continues, "It's my way of reaching out to those who loved Elvis in the hopes of touching their lives as much as he touched mine. I felt it was my responsibility to write a book about these realities of Elvis beyond the glitz, glamour and fun. He was human, and his very human frailties and vulnerabilities cost him his life. If addiction could happen to Elvis, it can happen to anyone."

Though My Brother Elvis is the rawest, most personal and hard hitting of Stanley's works, the author has drawn inspiration from his years with his famous stepbrother in several previous best selling books. The Elvis Encyclopedia was the first complete and authenticated compendium containing everything there was to know about the singer's personal and professional life.

"I have chosen to share my stories about Elvis and my past, even as dark as they can be, only if they can serve to communicate a positive, hopeful message that can help people," says Stanley. He continues, "Nobody loved Elvis more than I did. I wrote My Brother Elvis to humanize him not only for longtime fans passionate about him and his music, but also for young people, to make sure they realize that while life with 'The King' was often pretty cool, there was also a high price to pay for the party."
