.

ISBN: 154005201XISBN: 154005201XAm 01.05.2019 erscheint das von Bobby Morris und J. J. Grant geschriebene Buch "Bobby Morris My Las Vegas - With Elvis, Sinatra, Streisand, Darin, Prima & More" bei "Hudson Music".

Ankündigung des Verlages:
"My Las Vegas is the incredible life story of BOBBY MORRIS, who arrived in the U.S. from Poland at age ten, where he shined shoes and dreamed of being a drummer, and rose to become a music legend both behind the drums and in the Vegas entertainment industry. Leaving home as a teenager during the height of the Great Depression, Morris witnessed the birth of bebop coming from Harlem, and is himself credited with laying down some of the very first beats of rock n roll.

Hearing about a little town out west called Las Vegas, Morris arrived there in 1950 and proceeded to carve out a niche for himself in the music and entertainment management worlds, ascending to accompanist to the greatest stars of all time: Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Eddie Fisher and dozens of others.

Achieving fame as the drummer for Louis Prima s Witnesses during a golden age in Vegas, Morris eventually became the conductor and friend of Elvis Presley. He rubbed elbows with American presidents, playing the Kennedy Inauguration and befriending a young actor named Ronald Reagan. Also an important figure on the business side of the industry, Morris ran the successful Bobby Morris Agency, Inc. from his own building in downtown Las Vegas, and was involved in management, booking and entertainment direction of many of the major hotels and venues on the Strip.

This, his autobiography, is the inspiring and nearly unbelievable story of one man achieving his dreams and rubbing elbows with the greatest personalities of the twentieth century in the process.

Also included are Bobby s tips on success in the music business, preparing for an audition, business negotiations and more."

Elvis - March 1956

.

Kurz vor der Fertigstellung steht das neue Buch "Elvis - March 1956" von Paul Belard und hier eine Kurzreview der Homepage vom EIN:

"Another day-by-day account of a month in Elvis’ life. This time author-researcher Belard details (essentially in photos) what Elvis did in March 1956, a very busy and important month in his career. The month featured three appearances by Elvis on television, three performances on the Louisiana Hayride, and a mid-month tour of Georgia, North and South Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky and Washington D.C. Late in March 1956 Elvis also flew to Los Angeles for his first screen test and on his return home to Memphis he moved home from 1414 Getwell to 1034 Audoban Drive.

The myriad of photos (a mix of candids and professionally captured) are mostly in black and white with a number of color images including the ‘colorized’ image of Elvis on motorcycle used for the May 1956 issue of "The Enthusiast" and color images of Elvis during his television appearances.

The book also features a variety of interesting archival material/reproductions and each day is introduced with text setting the scene. Most of the images are of good quality, a few reflect their age and are included due to their historical importance/rarity."

Elvis In Vegas - How The King Of Rock 'n' Roll Reinvented The Las Vegas Show

.

ISBN 9781501151194ISBN 9781501151194"Elvis In Vegas - How The King Of Rock 'n' Roll Reinvented The Las Vegas Show" heißt ein von Richard Zoglin geschriebenes und 320 Seiten starkes Buch, welches bei "Simon & Schuster" für den Juli 2019 angekündigt ist.

Richard Zoglin ist Redakteur und Theaterkritiker für das "Time Magazine" und schrieb u. a. die Bücher "Comedy At The Edge: How Stand-Up In The In The 1970s Changed America" bzw. "Hope".

Ankündigung des Verlages:
"The story of how Las Vegas saved Elvis and Elvis saved Las Vegas in the greatest musical comeback of all time.

The conventional wisdom is that Las Vegas is what destroyed Elvis Presley, launching him on a downward spiral of drugs, boredom, erratic stage behavior, and eventually his fatal overdose. But in Elvis in Vegas, Richard Zoglin takes an alternate view, arguing that Vegas is where the King of Rock and Roll resurrected his career, reinvented himself as a performer, and created the most exciting show in Vegas history.

 Elvis’s 1969 opening night in Vegas was his first time back on a live stage in more than eight years. His career had gone sour—bad movies, and mediocre pop songs that no longer made the charts. He’d been dismissed by most critics as over the hill. But in Vegas he played the biggest showroom in the biggest hotel in the city, drawing more people for his four-week engagement than any other show in Vegas history. His performance got rave reviews, “Suspicious Minds” gave him his first number-one hit in seven years, and Elvis became Vegas’s biggest star. Over the next seven years, he performed more than 800 shows there, and sold out every one.

 Las Vegas was changed too. The intimate night-club-style shows of the Rat Pack, who made Vegas the nation’s premier live-entertainment center in the 1950s and ‘60s, catered largely to well-heeled older gamblers. Elvis brought a new kind of experience: an over-the-top, rock-concert-like extravaganza. He set a new bar for Vegas performers, with the biggest salary, the biggest musical production, and the biggest promotion campaign the city had ever seen. In doing so, he opened the door to a new generation of pop/rock performers, and brought a new audience to Vegas—a mass audience from Middle America that Vegas depends on for its success to this day."
