Tom Parker appears to be the best thing since sliced bread
on 21 October 2017
Elvis punching horses and chimpanzees???? If that was the case then the man goes down rapidly in my estimation. Clearly not able to control anything from the outset let alone his life. Sonny West certainly had a problem with quite a few people in the circle not just Elvis. Tom Parker appears to be the best thing since sliced bread. Mmmmm. Even Lisa Marie comes under fire. I learnt little about Elvis the person other than stuff that if I actually believed most of it, would make me dislike Elvis Presley intensely. Elvis obviously had many flaws but his biggest was surrounding himself with the likes of the Memphis Mafia who appeared to have quite readily gone scuttling back with their tail between their legs after falling-out with Elvis. Says it all really, it was a good free ride on Elvis's generosity while it lasted and each of them knew it and milked it while they could, then brought out the vitriol when they were disposed of and it obviously still rankles.
