In Martin's July 28 prose tagged "ON BOOKS: Elvis Presley was caught in a trap .... and he stayed," he views the new Elvis tome, "ELVIS IN VEGAS - HOW THE KING REINVENTED THE LAS VEGAS SHOW" by author Mr. Richard Zoglin. Likes Dino-philes know that our most beloved Dino was a huge hero to Elvis and that the King of Rock and Roll was the one to crown our Dino as the King of Cool.
So, likes it comes as no surprise that the name of our Dino gets delightfully dropped in Martin's review and we largely loves how Phillip describes Presley's deeper then deep Dino-adulation....." He
(Elvis) saw Dean Martin as a career lodestar." We also gotta 'fess up that we couldn't define the term "lodestar," so we looked up the def and it stunnin'ly sez, "a star that leads or guides; especially : the North Star." Indeed our one and only Dino was Mr. Elvis Presley's guidin' start and we totally totally thrills to see that Dino-truth stated in public print!!!!!
We thanks Mr. Phillip Martin for reviewin' this new volume on Mr. Presley and for sharin' Elvis' powerful passion for our most beloved Dino. Thanks also to the "Arkansas Democrat-Gazette" for seein' to goes into print for Dino-holics likes all us to remarkably revel in! To checks this out in it's original source and to read the review in total, simply clicks on the tag of this Dino-message.
Yours In Dino,

ON BOOKS: Elvis Presley was caught in a trap .... and he stayed
by Philip Martin | July 28, 2019
People should remember that Elvis Presley didn't have a playbook.
No one suspected in the beginning that a career in rock 'n' roll would be sustainable. It was more likely a greasy kid stuff fad and its purveyors would be back pumping gas and driving trucks within a year or two.
Presley didn't think of himself as an artist. He was an entertainer. He dyed his sandy hair black because he believed dark-haired movie stars had more longevity. He saw Dean Martin as a career lodestar.
