A monumental oral biography filled with raucous joy, aching loss and terrible poignancy, Elvis & the Memphis Mafia is the first book to capture the King – the man and the phenomenon – in his full complexity. Through revealing interviews with three of Elvis’ s closest friends, who were also his protectors and rescuers, Nash achieves the first true mapping of Elvis’ s psyche. Billy Smith – Elvis’ s first cousin and the person he reputedly loved most after his own mother – Marty Lacker – best man at his wedding and foreman of the ‘ Memphis Mafia’ , the King’ s handpicked group of gatekeepers and confidants – and Lamar Fike – the touring crew member who accompanied him into the Army – were with Elvis from his teens to his final days and provide unique access to the greatest of all rock and roll legends. The revelations cut through every aspect of Elvis’ s life, from the childhood seeds of his drug dependency, through his fear for his mother’ s life and his plan to change his identity, to his bizarre self-mutilation. No one who reads this symphonic blending of three proud, ribald, sad and ultimately wistful voices can fail to be profoundly moved.

When in June 1968, clad in black leather, a nervous Elvis Presley made his television “Comeback Special”, Alan Fortas was one of the five friends asked to be on stage with him. Fortas ultimately spent nearly twelve years working for Elvis, having been asked to join his fraternity of bodyguards and close buddies that came to be known as “The Memphis Mafia” back in 1958. He lived, travelled and played hard with Elvis during that time, watching Elvis become increasingly disillusioned with the endless stream of movies he was forced to act in, saw him become increasingly reliant on drugs, and witnessed Elvis’s colourful sex life. The only other memoir of Elvis that can offer such genuine inside knowledge and intimacy is Elvis and the Memphis Mafia, by three other members of his bodyguard fraternity, which Uncut magazine acclaimed as “the best Elvis book written to date”, and which Aurum has already re-published and seen reprint four times. Now it re-issues Alan Fortas’ book, which has been out of print for over ten years. Written in collaboration with Elvis authority Alanna Nash, who also collaborated on Memphis Mafia and wrote the definitive biography of Elvis’s sinister manager, Colonel Tom Parker, it is a must for every Elvis fan.Alan Fortas subsequently worked as an investment banker in Memphis, and died in 1992. Alanna Nash is the acclaimed author of The Colonel, a biography of Colonel Tom Parker (also published by Aurum, 978 1 84513 025 1), and co-author of Elvis and the Memphis Mafia. She lives in Louisville, Kentucky.

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 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. 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.

This is a biography of Elvis's top 290 comic moments. The King of rock and roll is for the first time revealed as the King of humor. Girls, guns, guitars, morgues, one-way mirrors, fleets of gifts, duping the U.S. President, chimpanzee sex, charade assassins, and water pistol fights are the deepest insights into the real Elvis. Presley had a thoughtful, comprehensive sense of humor, as detailed in the first chapter 'The Psychology of Elvis' Humor'. The best comic moments of his life follow. What Others Say about Elvis Presley's Humor: "I wish we had a full-length documentary of the way we all carried on at these locations. It would be a heck of a comedy." - Sonny West (bodyguard) "Elvis, as much as anybody I've ever known in my life, loved to laugh. His whole life was built around trying to find humor in things." - Ronnie Tutt (drummer) "Whether it was a whoopee cushion placed on one of the guy's chairs or dried red peppers poured on someone's eggs, there was always a prank ready to be played." - Peggy Lipton (model, girlfriend) "Elvis was an impulsive guy. And when you mix impulse, temper, and pills, you're going to have some interesting situations." - Marty Lacker (Memphis Mafia) "Elvis had no parameters. He moved the lines of behavior wherever he wanted them and if he went too far, he moved them out farther." - Lamar Fike (stage lighting, MM)"
