Because this is the book that I read and mentioned to Elvis Sidekicks Joe Esposito and Jerry Schilling.
The only 2 members of the Memphis Mafia that I ever wanted to meet because I read so many Elvis books when I was a kid that I thought that they were the only 2 who were ever really friends with Elvis in a meaningful way.
And you know what happened? They both yelled at me.
I don’t think Elvis would have approved of that.
So you know, I totally sympathize with Elvis on why he fired those other bodyguards.
You don’t get to rough up the fans who were responsible for Elvis success and you sure as fuck don’t do it to fans now either who are keeping Elvis’ memory alive.
