What a wonderful catharsis this must be for Nick Adams' daughter. If you like vintage Hollywood lore, this is the story, albeit a very short story, told in the purest voice of someone who was there in Elvis' days before that tidal wave of celebrity took over. It is easy to see how the "Memphis Mafia" that later surrounded Elvis came into being. One can only last so long signing autographs and answering the same questions over and over from intrusive fans/strangers. What does come across is that Nick Adams certainly was enamored with Elvis and I find it very hard to believe that Natalie Woods was just a friend -- look at the expression on her face.

I loved reading Nick's personal account of the time he spent with Elvis in Memphis. What a wonderful insight into the times, the life and the man who would become the King of Rock and Roll. During 1956 Nick Adams actually visited my home when he was on tour with Elvis. My mom and dad opened their home regularly to Elvis and all of his friends. I was just a small child, but I remember the times and conversations my parents would have when everyone left. I know they liked Nick very much and during one trip when Nick was not with Elvis, Elvis wanted to go see his movie, "No Time for Sergeants." It was playing in town, so my mom and dad accompanied Elvis to the theater so he could see his friend perform. I remember they had to sneak out the back door of the theater before the film ended as word got out and soon the theater was surrounded by fans. Such a neat time and place. I'm glad I was a small part of it and reading about it in Nick's own words was a treasure.

I really enjoyed this book plus the pictures. A person can really see how young they were in their actions and the things they did. Im only sorry that Elvis was so giving in the beginning of his career - maybe if he hadn't been so available to his fans and other people he might not have been easily lead down the path of drugs. Also, a person can see how he came from such a poor live and which in turn made him an easy prey for hand outs.

nick was there, he witnessed a special time in Elvis' life, the early days of who he became and Nick had a front row seat. I liked his book, it was honest and carefully written in an easy style. Elvis was there, he gave some things for Nick to include and approved his doing so. I think anyone who wants to read about those first moments of sudden, overwhelming fame for a young man who came from near nothing and rose to the heights
of the stars...will love this book. I did. Wanda June Hill

Bought this for a friend's birthday who met Elvis and Nick Adams during this time in Memphis. She read it and loved the book and the pictures!

The Rebel & The King is a heartwarming account of the friendship between Elvis and Nick Adams. I was fascinated to actually read Nick Adams' handwritten journal of the time he spent with his friend, Elvis. The foreword by Nick Adams' daughter, Allyson Adams, is equally moving and struck an emotional chord in me and how she carried around the "Daddy Box" for a long time without opening it. Even though the story is about Elvis and Nick, I wanted to know more about the Daddy Box! Now that's the marking of a great writer! Bravo, Ms. Adams!

What a find, that long after Nick Adams tragic death, something like this would turn up revealing such personal details of their relationship, In Nick Adams own Handwriting to boot! The Rebel and the King gives a good insight into their relationship, and to what was going on at the time. Great information for fans of Elvis in his early days.
I was interested to see what Nick Adams would say regarding his friendship with Elvis. I found it very interesting that he was always ready to defend Elvis when the public tended to critize him. They seemed to develop a great friendship as well as one with Elvis' parents. It was interesting to read yet another book regarding Elvis and his early life. I just wonder if they kept in contact after Nick went back to Calif. And how Elvis felt when he learned that Nick had died. A good easy read.
