Military Service

The Army holds a press conference just before Elvis’ departure from Germany for Armed Forces Radio and Television, Elvis was asked about being in the field rather than entertaining in a service club. His response was, ‘… I was in a funny position. Actually, that’s the only way it could be. People were expecting me to mess up (laughs), to goof up in one way or another. They thought I couldn’t take it and so forth, and I was determined to go to any limits to prove otherwise, not only to the people who were wondering, but to myself’.

Parker sold master tapes to 700 Presley songs to RCA for $5.4 million. Parker took half and the rest mostly went to Priscilla in her second divorce settlement. So EPE/Lisa Marie makes no money from Elvis’ most valuable catalog; distorting the Forbes Dead Celeb earner figures.
