Like millions of first-generation Rock & Roll teens, Sandi Haynes Pichon, Author, Columnist & President of TCB ELVIS STYLE Fan Club in Louisiana, was Raised on ELVIS! ELVIS! ELVIS! In between the time she sat with him on his motorcycle at his Audubon Drive home until the day she stood weeping by his coffin inside Graceland, Sandi was front row and center for ELVIS concerts all over the country. As a pre-teen in Memphis, she was there to witness a regional attraction which become a national obsession; she devoted years of her adult life to being part of his global audience, and has since dedicated herself to charities that pay homage to his iconic memory.
Through several chance meetings with ELVIS himself and friendships with his inner circle Sandi was close enough to feel for the wonderful man that was living in the shadow of his awesome reputation. They exchanged gifts and kisses across the footlights and she was invited to the parties after the shows and even to Graceland Mansion. "I was so fortunate to have been able to have such meaningful contact with the most beloved entertainer ever," Sandi relates. "I always knew that I was there for the millions who wished they were, so this story belongs to all the fans, who have loved him, turned their rooms into shrines to him, and stood by him for all these years." So now enjoy this pictorial novella of a time and place where a man changed the world one heart at a time.
Softcover - 300 pages.
..... Fortunately Pichon and Peters have found the winning formula in the pictorial novella "RAISED ON ELVIS! ELVIS! ELVIS!" by balancing the pictures with a tremendous storyline that is historic and insightful. The pictures are used to put you in the middle of the scene, so that they're relevant to the story and therefore interesting; when the ladies take a wild ride to the concert right behind Elvis in the motorcade the snapshots taken on the fly allows you to join the moment and share the good time that they were having.

Enjoy this gem... this most wonderful book. Thank you, Sandi, for writing this... and thank you for being a true friend to Elvis and to me... and to the others who had the most awesome experience of a lifetime.

This is not just a story about Elvis - it is also a story about my special friend Sandi Pichon - a little girl from the South that grew up to be a genteel Southern lady and became friends with a true Southern gentleman - this will always be Sandi's story and will forever remain her legacy!
