A genre-busting modernist rock ‘n’ roll fable unlike any other music biography, ʼThe Comeback: Elvis and the Story of The 68 Special is the definitive account of how it took Elvis eight years on the big screen to lose his crown – but just one magical hour on a small one to win it back.
The Comeback plots the incredible true story of the King’s fall and rise from army discharge to iconic black leather resurrection, told by author Simon Goddard with the energy, drama and exuberance it deserves.
The Comeback marks the 50th anniversary of the immortal TV broadcast that saved Elvis Presley from the brink of cultural oblivion after a decade in the wilderness – the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll sex god, reborn.
With a star supporting cast including Martin Luther King, The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Bobby Kennedy, The Comeback takes the reader inside the life, music and mind of Elvis: a 24/7 delirium of women, drugs, midnight movies, religious insanity and a psychopathic manager, isolated from an America unravelling in its own Sixties chaos of war, racism, riots and assassinations, until his world and theirs collide in the greatest performance of his life.
The Comeback: Elvis and the Story of The 68 Special is published on September 6. Pre-order now at bit.ly/Elvispreordercomp
