I just wanted to tell a little about the book that I won from Daz cav a little while back, "Raised on Elvis!Elvis!Elvis!", by Sandi Haynes Pichon.
It`s one of those books that every fan would like to read.....a fan story to other fans and as I never was lucky enough to go and see Elvis in person, I really appriciate a book like this.
Sandi tells how she at the age of 12 in 1956, first meet Elvis at Audubon Drive and sat on his motorcycle talking to him and visited his home a number of times. She tells about the concerts she went to...both in the 50`and the 70`, how she was invited inside the Stax studio 1973, her visit to Graceland and all the times when she came close to his world and his friends.
To me it seems that she was a fan who didn`t pushed herself to his personal life, she just tried to be near him and took what came along by it self........she never had a date with him, she was just a pure fan who loved/love Elvis and in this book she is sharing all her wonderful memories.
She also tell about the sad day in August 77, when she went to see Elvis at Graceland and the day she went to his funeral.
All in all, a story about a fan who followed Elvis almost from the beginning and right till the end and I`m really glad that I was lucky enough to have this book and read it......Thanks again Daz Cav.
P.S. Also there is some nice pictures in the book, some taken by Sandi and others with Elvis and Sandi, taken by someone else.
I have just one more thing to say........If you don`t have the book and you want to read it, I would be happy to LOAN you the book........on just one condition.....and that is as follows: You will send it either back to me or to the next in line on my list if I have one(I`ll let you know who). I don`t want to loose the book for good(Hope you understand), so it`ll be nice for me to know where it is all the time.
