To commemorate the 30th anniversary of her father's death, Lisa Marie Presley not only decided to sing, but to sing with him. "I wanted to use this for something good," she tells Spinner of her posthumous 'In the Ghetto' duet with Elvis Presley. "All fingers pointed towards New Orleans." She filmed the video in the hurricane-ravaged city, and all proceeds from the video and single will benefit a new Presley Place transitional housing campus there.

TV Land To Honor Elvis With Life-Sized Sculpture, On-Air Tribute: TV Land will celebrate the life and times of music legend and pop icon Elvis Presley throughout the summer of 2007. Kicking off TV Land's tribute to Elvis in late July, TV Land and the city of Honolulu, Hawaii will honor Elvis with a life-sized bronze sculpture. The statue will grace The Neal S. Blaisdell Center, formerly The Honolulu International Center, the site of Elvis' 1973 Aloha from Hawaii concert, which was seen globally on television.
Fans can log on today at TVLand.com to view video excerpts and photos from Elvis's historic Aloha From Hawaii performance. Following this momentous event, beginning Aug. 1, 2007, TV Land will celebrate Elvis with an on-air tribute commemorating his unprecedented legacy throughout the entire month. From the '68 Comeback Special to Aloha from Hawaii to the documentary "Elvis By The Presleys" to his much-loved films like Love Me Tender and Wild in the Country, TV Land will showcase Elvis Presley's work every single day in August.
"Elvis is the ultimate icon of pop culture, especially to the Boomer generation, and one of the greatest entertainers of the 20th century," states Larry W. Jones. "Celebrating his legacy this August on TV Land will be a unifying event for current and future Elvis fans." (News, Source: Star Pulse/It's Elvis Time)

The 50th Anniversary of Graceland March 23rd 2007.
Friday June 30th 2006 - A Big Exciting Day For Graceland, and Elvis Fans Everywere,Including Myself, It Was Very Exciting Listening To Elvis Radio 13, Covered By Elvis Radio 13 On Sirius Satellite ,Elvis Radio 13 Played All Favorite Elvis Presley Songs, Selcected by Japanese Prime Minister Koizumi, Elvis Radio 13 Had Been Talking To Many Fans Who Were There , Many Other TV And Satellite Networks , Local and National Media Were There As Well,Presedint Bush and First Lady Mrs Bush,Takes Japanese Prime Minister Koizumi To Graceland, And They Got A Tour Of Graceland Bye Priscilla Presley And Lisa Marie Presley.
Bush and Koizumi visit to Graceland - from Bill Burk's report
Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi scored BIG points with everyone who met him at Graceland and in Memphis today. He came across as just an average guy ... and NO QUESTION his knowledge of Elvis Presley, his idol.
Koizumi, President and Mrs. George W. Bush were given an hour's escorted tour of Graceland by Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley, but insiders say the "escorted" part was really not necessary; that Koizumi pretty well knew all about the inside of the mansion.
Elvis' famous pink Cadillac convertible was brought from the auto museum across the street to Graceland's lawn to save time.
He sang Elvis songs in the Jungle Room. He hugged Lisa Marie. He truly expressed joy in visiting the Home of the King !
He was given a pair of Elvis sun glasses, which he put on immediately and did his post-tour press comments wearing them. President Bush was given one of Elvis' big belt buckles. Will go well with his blue jeans he wears at his ranch in Crawford, Texas.
After a tour of the National Civil Rights Museum, conducted by our longtime friend, Dr. Benjamin Hooks, the group then dined on BBQ at the Rendezvous.
There they were fed chopped BBQ, BBQ ribs, slaw and potato salad on paper plates; with an apple cobbler and vanilla ice cream dessert.
They were entertained by The Dempseys, who used to be the house band at EP's Memphis, and, sure enough, Koizumi left his BBQ, grabbed a microphone and sang a couple of Elvis songs with the band.
AFTER, Bush flew on to Ohio for a campaign stop and Koizumi reportedly flew on to New Orleans.
Graceland has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. You can watch a video of Priscilla Presley and others at the official ceremony at Graceland which marked this historic occasion.

The 2006 T.F.F.E.F.C. Retreat
By Joe Karas
Understandably, my blue suede shoes cried a few tears when I took them off at the end of our 2006 Retreat. True Fans For Elvis Fan Club Retreats always soar well above the word: FABULOUS! A tremendous addition this year was made possible by Wayne Smith who brought his Satalite Sirius Radio equipment to Camp Sunshine. Throughout the retreat Channel Elvis 13 Memphis was playing for all to enjoy. What a great blend of Elvis music and insightful, informative features plus entertaining D.J. commentary. Over the weekend, I spoke, via cell phone, with a DJ on the air named Nikki. I told her about our retreat going on in Maine and requested a couple of songs which were played just a few minutes after making my request. Consider this: Those responsible for selecting our featured guests have very special talents, indeed! Not only do our guests bring fastenating, endless first hand Elvis experiences, they bring their beautiful friendliness, kindness, and openness. Louis and Nancy, Bill Black's Son and Daughter >> Brilliant Stars lighting up Camp Sunshine all weekend long!! ThankYou Louis and Nancy!! Everyone eating a Lobster Dinner at my table was happier than an itchy pig scratching it's back on a rail fence. FANTASTIC! And, if you didn't have at least three servings of the incredibly delicious Turkey Dinner Saturday evening, well, all I can say is, there must be something seriously wrong with you! The steak eaters seemed extremely happy as well! Tony and Robert, always at their best! How fortunate we are to have them! Thanks to all who cooked, prepared, and served. Now, with a hearty thankyouverymuch to one and all, I remain your faithful and resourceful masked rider of the plains....Joe Karas.

The True Fans For Elvis Annual Retreat 2005
By Joe Karas
May 2005 has 'come and gone' but the memory of that wondrous spring weekend will never go away. I don't want to exaggerate or over-dramatize. Very simply, once again, I believe, everyone who attended had a fantastic time! Beautiful accomodations at Camp Sunshine on the shores of Sabego Lake, ME. Great people to visit with, games, delicious food, a spectacular auction, and so much more! Perhaps the highlight of the entire weekend for all of us was Sam Thompson. What a guy. Open, friendly, willing to answer every question. If you have not had an opportunity to hear Sam talk about those days with Elvis, please make every effort to do so. He is an excellent speaker. True Fans for Elvis Fan Club has a way of contacting the very best guests for our retreat weekends. Hope to see you at our next retreat. Just contact Wayne at this site for details. By the way, be sure to look up Wayne at the next retreat. He is a very knowledgeable Elvis person... plus, a real talented natural singer. It was a real fun time singing: "I Can Help" with Wayne at the retreat! It seemed like half the floor was up dancing to our performance. I'll never forget it! This is Joe Karas.....Bye for now!
Thanks Again Joe.

Hi Elvis Fans! This photo was taken Friday, May 14, 2004 near the shores of Sebago Lake, Casco Maine, at Camp Sunshine. Sandi Miller was a teenager in Southern California in the mid-1960's. She wanted to see Elvis in person, so, she hung out at the gates of his homes in Los Angeles. (These were the movie making years.) One day, Elvis invited Sandi and her friends onto the property to join in on a barbecue! Sandi, and some of her pals, who hung out waiting to see him, became friends with Elvis till his death in 1977. What is so unusual and special about Sandi is that she took hundreds of candid photos, and kept a detailed journal of those incredible years. She's a very private, respectful person regarding her Elvis memories. Sandi, and a friend of mine have been E-Mail buddies for years. My friend invited Sandi to Maine to share memories of Elvis. Sandi is a treasure. A wonderful person. Full of great stories. She answered loads of questions straight on. This was her very first time speaking publicly on Elvis. (Even though it was at a private club setting. Approx. 90 people in attendance.) Elvis was concerned about his fans. As an example, an elderly couple used to visit the gates at one of his Los Angeles homes most every weekend. They missed a few weekends, and Elvis wondered what happened to them. No one knew their address. Elvis only knew their first names. Someone thought the couple lived in Van Nuys. A few days later a member of the group said: "Did you hear what happened to the elderly couple?" Elvis brought flowers to their home.They have a trailor in Van Nuys. The gentleman died." Elvis drove over alone to bring flowers and personally express his sorrow. Everyone wondered how he found out where the couple lived. Elvis used to memorise license plate numbers. He knew their number and asked the police to give him their address. Sometimes Sandi and her friends would hitch hike from Beverly Hills back to their homes in Orange County. When Elvis heard about this he lectured everyone about hitch hiking. He said there are ten cars in the driveway someone can drive you home. No more hitch hiking if you want to visit here! So many more stories. I was able to add some of Sandi's photos to my Elvis collection. Candids of him at RCA Recording Studios in Los Angeles. A great shot taken of him at 1174 Hillcrest Avenue, Trousdale Estates, Beverly Hills, California. (Easy to be confused with the name Sandi Miller. Vernon, Elvis' Dad was married to Gladys, then Dee Stanley. His next wife/partner was a nurse, a lady with the same name: Sandy Miller.) Remember, these are two differnt people. thankyouverymuch ---Joe Karas.

JULIE PARRISH ........A Treasure Forever. By, Joe Karas
True Fans for Elvis Fan Club held a marvelous three day retreat at Camp Sunshine on the shores of Sebago Lake in the state of Maine. Those who were there can not stop thinking and talking about that magnificent weekend in May, 2003.
Julie Parrish was our featured guest. We thoroughly enjoyed her talk about being in Paradise Hawaiian Style with Elvis. Julie’s singing was a special delight. Julie answered endless questions about Elvis, and the wondrous experience of working in a movie with The King of Rock and Roll. Not only did Julie share her exciting professional work, she shared herself.
Julie spent as much time in the kitchen helping and cleaning as she did doing anything else that weekend. A tray of fresh fruit was carried around by Julie. Selections were offered to club members seated at each table. Julie took time to sit, and visit at each individual table. Imagine being asked to dance by Julie Parrish. Julie asked each guy in the ballroom if he would like to dance. I had the honor, and will never forget our dance. This is Julie Parrish...a treasure. A lady with a beautiful heart filled with love for everyone. It only takes a few moments meeting Julie for the first time to be convinced you’ve been friends forever. Down to earth. Friendly, kind, considerate, thoughtful. What a treasure. I’m grateful I was fortunate enough to meet, and visit with this lovely person.
To Julie’s family and friends: I am deeply sorry for our loss. But, you know, Julie knew what is ultimately relevant in life. So, because of this, amazingly enough, warming through my sorrow, comes a smile. I’m smiling for her. I’m happy, and thankful today because of the joy and goodness she brought to all of us.
From Julie’s web site: “God Bless Us All!”
I have an Elvis fan club now, slowly getting it off the ground. As of this week have a Elvis webpage and thought maybe you would look at it and sign my guestbook. A friend made this page for me. My club is not an online club, just the webpage. There are membership dues, and four newsletters are sent a year. Thanks. Brenda

THE YEAR THE MUSIC CHANGED
Watching Elvis perform in Atlanta in 1956 inspired Diane Coulter Thomas to write a novel called "The Year The Music Changed". It's a coming-of-age story set in 1955 and told as a year-long correspondence between Elvis and a 14-year-old girl. The book will be published September 1, 2005 by The Toby Press. Publisher's Weekly calls it "a warm, lively and immensely readable novel that will especially touch fans of "the King."

THE YEAR THE MUSIC CHANGED, it takes place in 1955 and is told as a year of letters between a shy, self-conscious 14-year-old girl and an earnest 20-year-old country singer on the way up, who is Elvis.
I saw him in concert in 1956, and that was part of what inspired me to write the book. I did a lot of research for it, and all the dates and events in Elvis's letters are historically accurate.
The book is already getting great reviews. Publishers Weekly calls it "a warm, lively and immensely readable novel that will especially touch fans of the King." Library Journal writes that it is "touching, funny and tender, . . . highly recommended."
After September 8, it will be available at bookstores and online at www.amazon.com and www.barnesandnoble.com

Quote from Sandi: My pictures are all in color and originals and the story is how I first met Elvis in 1956 at the Audubon Drive house when I lived in Memphis and goes right along until his funeral. It parallels our lives and talks about what an impact he had on me and how he changed toward the end, both on and off stage. It is written with love.
Raised on Elvis by Sandi Haynes Pichon Publication Date: July 1, 2004 200 pages
Foreword by Kathy Westmoreland Special Note: The first 2000 copies will be a numbered limited edition signed by the author. Price: $39 plus $4 if mailed
For information, Sandi may be reached at:
Book Description: Like millions of first-generation Rock & Roll teens, Sandi Haynes Pichon, Author, Columnist & President of TCB ELVIS STYLE Fan Club in Louisiana, was Raised on ELVIS! ELVIS! ELVIS! In between the time she sat with him on his motorcycle at his Audubon Drive home until the day she stood weeping by his coffin inside Graceland, Sandi was front row and center for ELVIS concerts all over the country. As a pre-teen in Memphis, she was there to witness a regional attraction which become a national obsession; she devoted years of her adult life to being part of his global audience, and has since dedicated herself to charities that pay homage to his iconic memory. Through several chance meetings with ELVIS himself and friendships with his inner circle Sandi was close enough to feel for the wonderful man that was living in the shadow of his awesome reputation. They exchanged gifts and kisses across the footlights and she was invited to the parties after the shows and even to Graceland Mansion. "I was so fortunate to have been able to have such meaningful contact with the most beloved entertainer ever," Sandi relates. "I always knew that I was there for the millions who wished they were, so this story belongs to all the fans, who have loved him, turned their rooms into shrines to him, and stood by him for all these years." So now enjoy this pictorial novella of a time and place where a man changed the world one heart at a time.
It is some way off yet but Sandi Pichon, author of the highly recommended book "Raised On Elvis! Elvis! Elvis!" is currently working on her second book which is to be called "Elvis! Elvis! Elvis! Photos From The Heart".
The book will be a 10 x 8 colour concert book and is also going to have a chapter known as "Kisses From Elvis". This chapter will be devoted entirely to the lucky ladies who received those coveted stage kisses.
If you have a picture of yourself at the stage with Elvis and would like to be included in the book, please send Sandi a private email to the following address,
"Raised on Elvis! Elvis! Elvis!" Author , Sandi lives in Slidell, LA and fortunately she was out of state with her husband when the storm hit.

A Favorite of Many Fans
Fifty years after Elvis' first appearance on the Louisiana Hayride a book, documenting the shows from which we all know the recordings, came out. The book is written by Frank Page (announcer at the Hayride) and Joey Kent (owner of the remains of the Hayride) and published by J.A.T. Publishing.
The CD that comes with the book sounds better than the many CD?s we know with these (radio) recordings. In stead of replaying some parts the improvement here lays in the new digital remastering. Although we must add that Elvis sound very up-front and the band much to the back. Especially on the first two tracks it sounds a bit ?fragmented?, like the bad pars have been cut out.
This book is pure rock and roll, and you can read about the birth while listening to it.
By Daniel Wright (1996) Filled With Graphiti Taken From The Wall At Graceland.It Also Gives The History Of The Wall.
David Neale has written a book about Elvis and his music. If you have Acrobate Reader - here is an excellent description of the book. Roots of Elvis by David NealeThe book is entirely different than any other book on Elvis published.
