Elvis Presley’s Tupelo Homecoming Concert 60 Year Anniversary!

Do you have your copy of The Rebel & The King by Nick Adams? My Dad’s book details his personal experience with Elvis Presley during his return for the September 26, 1956 homecoming concert and 8 days in Memphis with his family.

“This is one of the most honest, touching and truthful books I’ve read about Elvis. I had no idea that extent of Nick’s connection to Elvis’ family and hometown. We never hear much about his mother and father. Nick brings them to life. It’s fascinating stuff.”
– Tom Brown (Former TCM executive, Elvis Presley expert and Elvis Week Host)

You can purchase your copy on Amazon or http://www.therebelandtheking.com
