Elvis' longtime right-hand man Joe Esposito has a new book about The King coming out entitled "Remember Elvis". It's a compilation of 200 interviews, from Hilton doormen to Steve Wynn, Jerry Weintraub, Dick Clark, Kenny Rogers, and ex-girlfriends, Esposito said.
The book is written in cooperation with Lauren McMullen (designer) and Darwin Lamm (narrator), it is published by TCB Joe Enterprises and hits the book shelves July 4, 2006.
Remember Elvis is an all-encompassing, in-depth look at the life and career of a man whose popularity is unrivalled in the history of show business and who continues to attract millions of new fans each year. This groundbreaking book is brimming with rare interviews, insights and experiences. At the heart of this landmark project are over 200 interviews with many of Presley's most intimate associates, as well as some of the biggest names in the film and recording industries. Joe Esposito spent nearly twenty years as Elvis's confidant, close friend and road manager. Joe helps set the record straight about Presley's private life and career, dispelling the innumerable lies, half-truths and rumors that have evolved over the years.

The cover is more innovative than J. Schillings wertheimer copy. And if I had to choose one, I think I´d pick Joe´s. I believe Jerry (allthough a good guy) leans a bit too much towards what is politically right and acceptable against EPE and "Cilla". -But maybe I´ll read both :)

Nearly £26.00 to read what a doorman has to say about Elvis.I don't think so.

If Joe didnt make his money while Elvis was paying him then to bad so sad, why dont they leave him alone. How much can a doorman tell me about Elvis?

All in all, Joe is a decent guy and probably the one with the most brains in the whole lot of them. After all he was Elvis' main man for many years. Also, the colonel must have felt the same as he was the only mafia member he truly relied on. Probably why Joe doesnt feel any ill will toward him. Joe didnt have it easy trying to please both!

Listening to Elvis radio a lot, my next Memphis Mafia book is going to be by George Klein. This guy was with him from 1948 right to the end. His stories on Friday afternoons are compulsive listening and never has to my knowledge been a hypocrite. I think the book is pencilled in for next year but it would be nice to read a book without the sensationalism I have read from other so called friends and family.

Got this book yesterday. It's a hardcover containing over 450 pages. It seemes it's mainly transcriptions from Joe Espositos eight volum DVD collection The Definitive Elvis, which was banned by EPE a couple years ago.
