In October the band was put on a fixed salary of $200 a week when they worked, with a retainer of $100 when they weren’t.3 According to Scotty, Bob Neal told them it had been decided that their old verbal agreement, whereby Elvis received 50 percent and Scotty and Bill each received 25 percent, was no longer acceptable.

They had begun with Elvis as partners. Now they were nothing more than salaried sidemen. They never had a written contract, so they didn’t have a legal leg to stand on.
