I posted a brief remark a few days ago and it was:
"They are one in the same, and if this book is like
the CBS book, as it seems to be - he is out to lunch,
nuts, crazy, etc... and should not be allowed to
publish his rose coloured BS..." Take care, Paul
Since I made those remarks, Darrin has contacted me.
We discussed things and I now realize that I gave a
false impression of who this man is. I've personally
known Darrin since around 1999. He is clearly a
devoted fan of Elvis Presley. Mr. Memmer and I have
corresponded in the past and he has never once given
me the impression that his efforts to honor Elvis are
less than sincere. His views of Elvis are 360 degrees
away from mine. He just can't see fault in Elvis'
behavior. But I apologize for the personal attack on
his character. He, like us, is a devoted fan doing his
best to write about Elvis Presley. He is wrong in his
efforts, but I should not have said what I did. I
apologize to Darrin.

Darrin is a very genuine Elvis Fan and hard working guy when it comes to his books.... of cource whether you agree or disagree with the books views..... well you just have to buy a copy and make your own mind up. Darrin gets 100% for effort in my book anyhow.
