August 08 - Safe And Sound


Elvis presley's former bodyguard Dick Grob released a new book entitled "Safe And Sound". The 300 page book will be available during Elvis Week 2017.

From Dick Grob's site:
“Elvis Safe & Sound,” Dick’s new book, tells some of the stories experienced by the author over his ten year relationship with Elvis. Not only was Dick Elvis’ bodyguard and Chief of Security, he was Elvis’ close personal friend. Some of his stories are funny; some are scary; other’s just plain interesting.

“Elvis Safe & Sound” is jammed-packed with Dick’s personal descriptive accounts of his time with Elvis. The book tells just that, keeping Elvis safe while he delivered the sound of the 20th Century. Dick’s book tells stories from the road on tours and from Elvis' homes in Palm Springs and Graceland in Memphis. The complexities and organization required to ensure a safe tour are well documented from the archives of Dick Grob. Read about the rarely discussed Tahoe incident in 1974 to the bomb scare ordeal in Pittsburgh of 1976. First hand accounts from one who was there to give frank, honest perspectives are in the book. See who was there, who was where, and who left and when. View the never before published photos of Elvis on stage and the private photos of Dick’s family enjoying Elvis' generosity.

This book is jam packed with Dick’s documents, rare photos and eyewitness accounts of his life with Elvis and his contribution to keeping Elvis Safe and Sound. It includes documents from Dick’s personal archives as well as rare, never before seen photos of Elvis on stage, and copyrighted documents and photos (in color and black and white). “Elvis Safe & Sound” is a great narration of Dick’s authentic and personal time while he kept “Elvis Safe & Sound.” To the avid Elvis fan and the just interested fan, this book is a revealing and historical guide.
