From author Adrian Keller - Before Elvis Presley made it "big" and shook the world, he worked as a truck driver for Crown Electric in Memphis, Tennessee. Crown Electric was then owned by James and Gladys Tipler, or Mr. Tips, as people close to him called him. As his employee for about thirteen months, Mr. Tips experienced the young Elvis, one that is less known to the world. Later on, Mr. Tips dissolved Crown Electric and in time he opened another business in electric supplies in Memphis, called Tip's Electric.
In the late 1980s Mr. Tips hired a young immigrant by the name of Adrian Keller, who came to Memphis because of Elvis, but for different reasons than one may believe.
Mr. Tips was generally reluctant to share his experience about Elvis and his employment at Crown Electric. With time, however, Mr. Tips developed a close relationship with the young immigrant, got to like him, and opened up to him. Adrian worked for Tip's Electric for about a year and four months. Over the course of about fifteen months, Mr. Tips shared with Adrian a wealth of memories and records about Elvis, how Elvis worked, how he was like during the day, the kind of work Elvis did, and many other things about Elvis never released until now. It was at Crown Electric that Elvis developed the working habits he later needed to maintain the gruesome working schedule he kept in Las Vegas and during most of his concert years.
This book, the first of its kind, is the record of Adrian's notes about Elvis, as shared by Mr. Tipler.
A riveting story, the book shines the first light on the young days of Elvis' life before stardom, and a completely unknown part of his life. Indeed, "Elvis Before Elvis" is true and factual history."
