Elvis: My Best Man George Klein & Chuck Crisafulli Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
When George Klein was an eighth grader at Humes High, he couldn’t have known how important the new kid with the guitar—the boy named Elvis—would later become in his life. But from the first time GK (as he was nicknamed by Elvis) heard this kid sing, he knew that Elvis Presley was someone extraordinary. During Elvis’s rise to fame and throughout the wild swirl of his remarkable life, Klein was a steady presence and one of Elvis’s closest and most loyal friends until his untimely death in 1977.
In Elvis: My Best Man, a heartfelt, entertaining, and long-awaited contribution to our understanding of Elvis Presley and the early days of rock ’n’ roll, George Klein writes with great affection for the friend he knew—about who the King of Rock ’n’ Roll really was and how he acted when the stage lights were off. This fascinating chronicle of boundary-breaking and music-making through one of the most intriguing and dynamic stretches of American history overflows with insights and anecdotes from someone who was in the middle of it all. From the good times at Graceland to hanging out with Hollywood stars to butting heads with Elvis’s iron-handed manager, Colonel Tom Parker, to making sure that Elvis’s legacy is fittingly honored, GK was a true friend of the King and a trailblazer in the music industry in his own right.

User reviews about this book
I have been an Elvis fan since I was 7 years old. I have read many books about Elvis but feel this was a true and loving picture of his life. Thank you GK for your story,
Mr. Klein illustrated for Elvis fans of all generations the very essence of what a beautiful human being he was. Many thanks to him for sharing his story🌹
Great book, easy to read
My thanks goes out to GK, awesome man and doesn't speak negative of the legend he remembers. Really interesting to hear he met Elvis very young and they made a special friendship. GK was part of the Memphis Mafia but also had a full time job as a well respected DJ. His business and personal life came full circle with Elvis. This isn't a dark days book about Elvis, it's a happy book.
Big Elvis fan and reader and I enjoyed the book. Would love to meet George K one day!!!!
What a moving tribute to a man I have loved and considered part of my family practically all my life. Thanks George for sharing your memories. It makes me feel even more that my love and admiration for this man was earned and deserved.
