Following the death of Elvis Presley in 1977, a masked mystery man with the voice of The King emerged. Who was Orion? Where did he come from? And was he really the second coming of Elvis? At once a stranger-than-fiction music industry mystery and a poignant investigation of fame, identity, and destiny, Orion: The Man Who Would Be King gets the wild, behind-the-scenes story of a talented but overlooked artist who sold his soul for pop stardom—and wound up paying the price.
