About this deal

Jerry does a very admirable job of giving fans a chance to really see Elvis not as just a superstar entertainer but also as a man who had personal dreams, vulnerabilities, doubts, and challenges as a human being. He had several of them on the payroll in various roles like security, personal assistants, drivers, etc. Elvis Presley may be famous for his pelvic thrusts and never ending sideburns but a new book is all set to reveal that he had a passion for practical jokes too. As Elvis signed autographs for their wives, it all came together for me… He would have ended up with some more enemies.

Yes, the pills took their toll on him, but sometimes the reader got the feeling that disappointment was Elvis' depressive, his cross to bear, his anchor. Me and a Guy Named Elvis looks at Presley from a friend’s perspective, offering readers the man rather than the icon ― including insights into the creative frustrations that lead to Elvis’s abuse of prescription medicine and his tragic death. I feel that the Colonel prevented him from exercising those attributes and contributed to his drug abuse and death. I have a teacher friend who has the uncanny ability to make me feel better about myself than I ever should. This is exactly how I pictured Jerry Schilling after finishing his book "Me and a Guy Named Elvis: My Lifelong Friendship with Elvis Presley".One habit of Elvis' that was not a joke was his insistence that his own music never be played inside Graceland. but have warm hearts toward the oppressed of all classes; *but they hide their feelings, and allow people to think what they please*.

Uma opinião dele sobre o filme de Sofia Copolla seria muito bem-vinda, já que ele participou de muitos momentos importantes da vida de Elvis. I picked this up on audiobook because I'm KIND OF excited about that Elvis biopic coming out by Baz Luhrmann (yes, Romeo + Juliet Luhrmann). I've come to feel that my friend gave me his blessing for this book long ago when he was on a drive across the desert with karate instructor Ed Parker. Jerry Schilling foi o anjo da guarda de Elvis, de Lisa Marie e, até os dias de hoje, é um grande amigo de Priscilla.

Jerry offers never-before-told stories about life inside Elvis’s inner circle and an emotional recounting of the great times, hard times, and unique times he and Elvis shared. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. In 1964, Elvis invited Jerry to work for him as part of his ' Memphis Mafia', and Jerry soon found himself living with Elvis full-time in a Bel Air mansion and, later, in his own room at Graceland.

He was there when Elvis's mother died, when he was drafted into the Army, when he met Priscilla, and when he became a father.When you first met him playing football sharing that even though he was a star he was kind, generous friendly.

But as Jerry gave as his reason for leaving Elvis a few years before his death: I did not want to be a yes man or an asshole. For all the kids who first got excited about the sound of rock and roll, there were twice as many who thought it sounded just horrible.Jerry Schilling’s words brought tears to my eyes, making me smile and nod as it filled my head with things I had forgotten but thankfully he remembered. In 1964, Elvis invited Jerry to work for him as part of his Memphis Mafia, and Jerry soon found himself living with Elvis full-time in a Bel Air mansion and, later, in his own room at Graceland. It just so happens that my subject of expertise is Elvis Presley, one of the most important figures of the 20th century and certainly the most remarkable man I've ever known.
