Description
On a lazy Sunday in 1954, twelve-year-old Jerry Schilling wandered into a Memphis touch football game, only to discover that his team was quarterbacked by a nineteen-year-old Elvis Presley, the local teenager whose first record, That's All Right, had just debuted on Memphis radio. The two became fast friends, even as Elvis turned into the world's biggest star. 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 Gra celand. Over the next thirteen years Jerry would work for Elvis in various capacities - from bodyguard to photo double to co-executive producer on a karate film. But more than anything else he was Elvis's close friend and confidant: Elvis trusted Jerry with protecting his life when he received death threats, he asked Jerry to drive him and Priscilla to the hospital the day Lisa Marie was born and to accompany him during the famous lost weekend when he traveled to meet President Nixon at the White House. 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. 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. These vivid memories will be priceless to Elvis's millions of fans, and the compelling story will fascinate an even wider audience.

A member of Elvis Presley's "Memphis Mafia" describes his long-time friendship with the legendary singer, tracing their relationship from his first meeting as a child, through his years of living and working with Presley, to his tragic death, offering vivid reminiscences about life inside the inner circle and his view of Presley the man rather than the icon. Reprint.

Commemorating the thirtieth anniversary of ElvisÂ's death, an intimate memoir of a friendship with the greatest artist in rock and roll history, taking you from late-night parties at Graceland to the bright lights of Hollywood sets and glittering stages of Vegas.

On a lazy Sunday in 1954, twelve-year-old Jerry Schilling wandered into a Memphis touch football game, only to discover that his team was quarterbacked by a nineteen-year-old Elvis Presley, the local teenager whose first record, “ThatÂ's All Right,” had just received its first play on Memphis radio. The two became fast friends, even as Elvis turned into the worldÂ's biggest star. 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. Over the next thirteen years Jerry would work for Elvis in various capacities—from bodyguard to photo double to co-executive producer on a karate film.

Me and a Guy Named Elvis looks at Presley from a friendÂ's perspective, offering readers the man rather than the icon. Spanning ElvisÂ's meteoric rise to those later troubled years, JerryÂ's story offers never-before-told stories about life inside ElvisÂ's inner circle, and an insightful, emotional recounting of the great times, hard times, and unique times he and Elvis shared. SchillingÂ's vivid memories will be priceless to ElvisÂ's millions of fans, and his compelling life story will be fascinating to an even wider audience. -- Penguin Putnam
