About the Book
Sadly 2019 also marks the 42nd anniversary of his untimely death. Elvis Presley has (almost) been gone for longer than he was among us, but he left a permanent mark. His cultural impact may very well have been more visible and ‘alive’ during the last 42 years than when he was actually alive. And so is the Elvis-world today.
The almost 500 news-updates about Elvis Day By Day this year about the many new books, CDs, LPs, movie releases on DVD, Blu-ray and in movie theaters, appearances on music and movie charts (still topping some of those) and still 'playing' sell-out arenas, clearly show that Elvis Presley still matters today. Especially when younger generations discover his music through digital releases and Spotify and start to buy re-issues of his original work on old fashioned vinyl.
Today’s Elvis news primarily finds its way to fans through on-line channels and in summarized form in newsletters and fan-club magazines. Based on the Elvis Day By Day news blog, and with additional and exclusive in-depth reviews from the Elvis Information Network, this book compiles a comprehensive and illustrated chronology of ‘everything Elvis from 2019’ in one physical reference book.
Kees Mouwen has been writing about the Elvis Presley for 20 years. The last ten years on his ElvisDayByDay.com blog and before that ten years on ElvisNews.com which he co-founded in 1999. This book, based on the Elvis Day By Day blog with additional reviews from the Elvis information Network website, compiles all the news, as it happened, when it happened and how it developed throughout the year. With all that news and reviews mainly available online and in part in fan-club magazines he decided to return to the paper format. It offers a comprehensive illustrated chronology of 'everything Elvis Presley' from 2019. The book also marks 20 year of writing about 'The King'. Elvis Day By Day is an officially recognized, non-profit, fan-club. The aim of Elvis Day By Day is to promote the legacy of Elvis Presley, with respect for “the man, the artist and the image".
