by Robert Graham, Keith Baty
The everyday story of an imaginary superstar eccentric. The Presley neither his fans nor anyone else knew. First-born of triplets, he came from the backwoods of Tennessee. Driven by a burning ambition to sing opera, fate sidetracked him into creating Rock ‘n’ Roll. His classic movie Driving A Sportscar Down To A Beach In Hawaii didn’t win the oscar he yearned for, but The Beatles revived his flagging spirits.
Further shockingly momentous events have led him to the peaceful, contented life-style he enjoys today, in his 62nd year.
This 1984 classic is updated and improved, with a brilliant new cover by Ray Lowry.
