ME AND A GUY NAMED ELVIS My Lifelong Friendship with Elvis Presley

by | Read by William Dufris

Biography & Memoir • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Author Schilling, a member of Elvis's retinue, the "Memphis Mafia," had the opportunity to see a more introspective side of "The King." His experiences give this memoir unique insights into the man. William Dufris could have tried to imitate the well-recognized timbre and intonation of Elvis's voice, but he chose instead only to slightly alter his tone, making Elvis sound more like a person and less like an icon. Dufris softens his delivery during particularly moving episodes: when Elvis sings gospel, when he wins his first Grammy, and when he learns of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dufris keeps his tongue in his cheek for the comic story of Elvis's visit with President Nixon, who designated him a "special agent" in the fight against drug abuse.
