    The beginnings of Colonel Tom Parker is an amazing story and almost unbelievable. There is conjecture on why he came to the U.S., but he would never leave our country for any reason. For many many years Tom Parker did the most menial jobs you can imagine. His forceful personality and know-how just got in the way; he created from nothing all of his success with dogged care over his domain and it is a great story. Well written and filled with jaw-dropping facts.

    Elvis Presley Dead or Alive?

    nobody really knows for sure, i have read alot of information on ELVIS PRESLEY and i have plenty of evidence that Elvis never really died in 1977. First of all that is not Elvis in the casket on the front page of all newspapers,why does he look so young?I believe it was a wax dummy place in there.Another thing is why were there two hearses? one was black and one was white going in two different directions.I do believe if Elvis died in 1977 that it could have been prevented,you could just tell the way Elvis look that he had gain weight,was slurring his words,and could not hardly move around like the Elvis that we knew. I also know that 6 weeks before his alleged death that Elvis look great and you would never know anything was wrong.I do think that Colonal Tom Parker knew what was going on with Elvis but then again Elvis was very smart and i believe Elvis and the Colonal could also been in on Elvis faking his death.This is something we will never know because there are too many impersonators out there and Elvis could impersonate himself and we would never know.I have heard some of these impersonators and they are identical to Elvis Presley.I have been a Elvis fan all my life ever since i was a little kid and now i am 35 years old and im still a fan of THE KING OF ROCK N ROLL.I can not wait to get my hands on this book,because there should be more truth to find out to what really happened on that august of 77.I also have the book ORION very close to the truth that is why its off the shelf. All i gotta say is bye the book The Colonal you wont regret it , i will get the book for sure.One day i hope Lisa Marie will go on National TV with a 2 hour special on her Daddy and let the world know the TRUTH AFTER ALL....i believe there are still some missing pieces.well god bless and i hope one day ELVIS PRESLEY WILL REST IN PIECE or come back out of hiding and Perform the way he used to in the past,or if he is not alive then i hope the memorials at GRACELAND will continue forever and dont just fade like a memory gone down the drain. Take care everyone, The Elvis Presley Fan.
