On Elvis's first visit to Hawaii in 1957, fans filled Honolulu Stadium for not one but two concert performances. That was the beginning of Elvis's enduring relationship with Hawaii, which included two additional benefit concerts, three films and several vacation stays. For Elvis fans and those interested in Hawaii's music history, Aloha Elvis describes Elvis's love affair with the island, and includes over 100 photographs of Elvis (some never before published) and the people and places he encountered in Hawaii.
Jerry Hopkins, a twenty-year veteran of Rolling Stone, is the author of three other books about Elvis Presley: Elvis: A Biography and Elvis: The Final Years, both international bestsellers. Hopkins also wrote biographies of Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Raquel Welch and Yoko Ono. A resident of Hawaii from 1976-1993, he now lives in Thailand.
