On a December morning in 1970, the King of Rock ’n Roll showed up on the lawn of the White House to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, President Nixon.
Starring Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon (Best Supporting Actor, Revolutionary Road, 2008) as Elvis Presley and two-time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey (Best Actor, American Beauty, 1999 and Best Supporting Actor, The Usual Suspects, 1995) as Richard Nixon, comes the untold true story behind this revealing, yet humorous moment in the Oval Office, forever immortalized in the most requested photograph in the National Archives.

Featuring beloved Presley classics along with several surprises, standout tracks include a sultry new version of “A Big Hunk O’ Love,” the glorious “Amazing Grace,” the heartfelt emotion of “Kentucky Rain” and a stunning new take on the classic “Always On My Mind.”
Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink is the long-awaited memoir from Elvis Costello, one of rock and roll's most iconic stars.
Born Declan Patrick MacManus, Elvis Costello was raised in London and Liverpool, grandson of a trumpet player on the White Star Line and son of a jazz musician who became a successful radio dance band vocalist. Costello went into the family business and had taken the popular music world by storm before he was twenty-four. Costello continues to add to one of the most intriguing and extensive songbooks of the day. His performances have taken him from a cardboard guitar in his front room to fronting a rock and roll band on your television screen and performing in the world's greatest concert halls in a wild variety of company.
Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink describes how Costello's career has somehow endured for almost four decades through a combination of dumb luck and animal cunning, even managing the occasional absurd episode of pop stardom. This memoir, written with the same inimitable touch as his lyrics, and including dozens of images from his personal archive, offers his unique view of his unlikely and sometimes comical rise to international success, with diversions through the previously undocumented emotional foundations of some of his best known songs and the hits of tomorrow. The book contains many stories and observations about his renowned co-writers and co-conspirators, though Costello also pauses along the way for considerations on the less appealing side of infamy.
Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink is destined to be a classic, idiosyncratic memoir of a singular man.

The CD features many of today's biggest country artists, including Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, Gretchen Wilson, Sara Evans and LeAnn Rimes - all singing classic Elvis holiday songs with Elvis Presley.
Kevin Spacey stars as President Richard Nixon and Michael Shannon as Elvis Presley in this comedic retelling of the pair's meeting at the White House in December 1970. Turning up unannounced, Elvis requests a meeting with the world's most powerful man as he tries to convince the President to appoint him as an undercover federal agent. Elvis proclaims a desire to tackle America's growing drugs problem and seeks out a Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs badge to do so. Although the President considers the King of Rock 'n' Roll unworthy of his time, his aide Egil Krogh (Colin Hanks) convinces him of the potential for positive publicity, especially amongst young voters, and the iconic meeting goes ahead with a series of strict conditions in place.
Waar het alles so verkeerd gegaan? Sy het haar voorgeneem om nie soos Ma koud en afsydig teenoor haar man te wees nie. Om te veg vir haar huwelik. Ma het in die huwelik gebly in liggaam maar haar gees was nie daar nie. Sy was nog heeltyd in liggaam en gees daar. Sy het alles gegee, altyd die vrede probeer bewaar, nooit die appelkar omgegooi nie. Hoekom is dit dan dat sy nie haar man kon hou nie? In hierdie aangrypende roman word pertinente vrae gevra: Waarom bly ons lojaal tot die mense vir wie ons lief is? Is daar 'n “reg” en “verkeerd” in verhoudings? Is dit onselfsugtig en groothartig om by 'n verslaafde te staan – of eerder pateties om nie jouself eerste te stel nie? Toe Elvis ophou sing is 'n boek wat 'n binnekyk gee in die lewe van alkoholisme gesien deur die familielede van die alkoholis. Meer spesifiek die kind van 'n alkoholis. Die boek beeld die progressiewe stadia van alkoholisme uit. Waar die alkoholis net as 'n sosiale drinker begin en opeindig as 'n aggressiewe dronkaard. Toe Elvis ophou sing ondersoek ook die effek, wat alkoholisme het, op die individu wat in so 'n huis grootword en later 'n huishouding van haar eie het. Hoe denkpatrone, gedragspatrone en keuses steeds gedryf word deur hierdie disfunksionele gesinsomstandighede waarin die volwassene as kind grootgeword het.

What was it like to be Elvis Presley? What did it feel like when impossible fame made him its prisoner? As the world's first rock star there was no one to tell him what to expect, no one with whom he could share the burden of being himself - of being Elvis. On the outside he was all charm, sex appeal, outrageously confident on stage and stunningly gifted in the recording studio. To his fans he seemed to have it all. He was Elvis. With his voice and style influencing succeeding generations of musicians, he should have been free to sing any song he liked, to star in any film he was offered, and to tour in any country he chose. But he wasn't free. The circumstances of his poor beginnings in the American South, which, as he blended gospel music with black rhythm and blues and white country songs, helped him create rock and roll, had left him with a lifelong vulnerability. Made rich and famous beyond his wildest imaginings when he mortgaged his talent to the machinations of his manager, 'Colonel' Tom Parker, there would be an inevitable price to pay. Though he daydreamed of becoming a serious film actor, instead he grew to despise his own movies and many of the songs he had to sing in them. He could have rebelled. But he didn't. Why? In the Seventies, as the hits rolled in again, and millions of fans saw him in a second career as he sang his way across America, he talked of wanting to tour the world. But he never did. What was stopping him? BEING ELVIS takes a clear-eyed look at the most-loved entertainer ever, and finds an unusual boy with a dazzling talent who grew up to change popular culture; a man who sold a billion records and had more hits than any other singer, but who became trapped by his own frailties in the loneliness of fame.
