Expertise

I can answer practically anything regarding Elvis' life, music, concerts, and films. Sorry - I cannot answer questions about worth of collectibles (including music).

Experience in the area

I have read extensively about Elvis' life for over 20 years and own dozens of books regarding his life, concert tours, and recording career. I also finished 2nd in an Elvis trivia contest (by one point) held across the street from Graceland in 2002. I have personally spoken with Scotty Moore, Millie Kirkham, his Commanding Officer from the Army, and one of his cooks.
