Author Charles Stone with his book "My Years with Elvis & The Colonel in the giftshop of Elvis Presley Enterprises, Memphis, TN In December 2010, after the sad news of the passing of singer Shaun Nielsen and Myrna Smith, we received another sad note about the death of Elvis' old budd Lamar Fike, who was with Elvis since the 1950's.

Charles Stone, author of the Praytome Publishing book "My Years with Elvis & The Colonel", told us the following: Bruce Jackson, a sound reinforcement pioneer and technology developer at Dolby, is missed since the last weekend when he was on a trip with his plane flying over Death Valley. Since he was on his own and so far no sign of life as been received, one can assume that Jackson was killed during a plane crash.
In the Elvis world Jackson is known for his work in the Elvis Tour crew from 1971-77 where he was in charge for the acoustics and the sound technology. Jackson can also be credited for taping dozens of the King's concerts. During the research for Charles Stone's book, photographer Ed Bonja (who works for Praytome Publishing) reestablished contact to Bruce Jackson. A lot of people tried to get in touch with Jackson, but he never gave detailed information about his time he had with the Elvis entourage. After having seen the quality of the Praytome Publishing products he offered to contribute information and pictures from his private collection. These pictures were published for the first time in "My Years With Elvis & The Colonel" which you can order by clicking here.
Jackson also was involved in the works for the upcoming Praytome Publishing book "Elvis on Tour '72" by Ed Bonja. As it seems, Jackson's involvement into this project can not be continued unfortunately.
We like to thank all of the Elvisfans for their support throughout the year 2009. With the premiere of "My Life With Elvis & The Colonel" by Charles Stone during the 100th anniversary of Colonel Parker's birthday party in Breda, The Netherlands, Praytome Publishing received great feedback.
The "Follow That Dream"-label released the 2CD Set "Dixieland Delight" this year in conjunction with "Bud Glass Productions" and "Praytome Publishing". The Multimedia Box set that goes along with that set and which has the focus on the 5 performances in Huntsville could not be completed in 2009. It's a huge project which will be released in 4 differenten stages and you can imagine that there is an enormous amount of work and with more than 20 interview partners. To co-ordinate and compile the material (footage, pictures and memorabilia) from the collections of additional contributors and collectors is not only a big task but we feel that we have to do it with great responsibility. We do understand that you are excited about this set, but we are, too! So with 2010 being the 35th anniversary of the Huntsville Shows we try our best to release this set and share it with the world.
To all of you and your family members: Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2010!
