In the summer of 2016, a shocking book rocked Elvis Presley fans to their core. “My Brother Elvis: The Final Years” is an emotional memoir by stepbrother David Stanley. It recounts his time as Presley’s aide and bodyguard, providing insight into the addictions and demons that led to the star’s demise.
