The King and Dr. Nick

What Really Happened to Elvis and Me

by George Nichopoulos, MD with Rose Clayton Phillips


The truth about Elvis's death from the doctor who spent eleven years as

"the King's" personal physician, father-figure, and confidant - "Dr. Nick."

Dr. Nichopoulos spent a decade with Elvis on the road and at Graceland, trying to maintain the precarious health of one of the world’s greatest entertainers. But on August 16, 1977, he found himself in the ambulance with Elvis on that fateful last trip to the ER. He signed the death certificate.

From that day forward, Dr. Nick became the focus of a media witch hunt that threatened his life and all but destroyed his professional reputation. Now, for the first time, Dr. Nick reveals the true story behind Elvis’s drug use and final days—not the version formed by years of tabloid journalism and gross speculation. Put aside what you’ve learned about Elvis’s final days and get ready to understand for the first time the inner workings of “the king of rock n’ roll.”

Publisher: Thomas Nelson (January 5, 2010)

Reader Reviews

"I really did enjoy the book and I did find it to be entertaining . This is Dr. Nicks story and his version of what he remembers of his time spent with Elvis. It has lots of stories of events that occurred. It also has lots of insight into what Elvis was doing and who he was with in the 70s.It explains his visits to the hospital and conversations with certain people. There is lots of information about Dr. Nicks court hearing. There are copies of documents and lots of pictures. I Liked the book because I think it is important to hear everybodies version of what they believed to be true. This is his version and worth reading. I found it easy to read and interesting. I picked up the book with no expectations other then a book to read about an interesting person with an interesting life. It delivered all that and more." Read More
