Few people have such intimate knowledge of Elvis and his friends as Ed Bonja. From 1970 to 1977, Ed was full-time assistant to Colonel Tom Parker and was the Elvis Presley Show Official Photographer, producing iconic photos of Elvis’s legendary performances. Ed was a lifelong friend of the Colonel, Tour Manager for the Elvis Presley Show, and a sincere and ardent admirer of Elvis the artist and man.
Viva Elvis features stunning photography, including over 50 never-before-published images, and recalls Ed’s extraordinary life with the King of Rock and Roll and the guru of entertainment managers, Colonel Tom Parker. This is a unique tribute.
“I’d be right on stage with him, hiding behind the speaker-stack, and he would look right into the camera, look right at me!“
