According to Marty Lacker, George Klein was never considered a Memphis Mafia member.


yes.

However when fans say Memphis mafia they are talking about the people that were in Elvis entourage.

Several of the people mentioned in this thread weren't considered part of the MM by Marty Lacker and some of the others but for the fans it just means entourage.

Really? A lot?


Yes.

I'm surprised you don't know that.

I could name a lot of people.

Fire away...


Are you sure you want me to do that?

I am right and by doubting what i'm saying you are just setting yourself up for an epic fall.

What about Cliff Gleaves?. He was in Elvis's entourage in the 50's.

none of the MM guys would have had any movie credits if they hadn't been extras in Elvis' movies.

and probably would have been regular blue collar guys - and nothing's wrong with that - in Memphis.

Red West would not have been a songwriter and actor nor would Sonny have had an acting career

Charlie Hodge would have continued on the regional country & western circuit as part of a quartet

Lamar Fike would not have gotten into music publishing

Joe Esposito would not have been a tour manager for a variety of acts if not for his Elvis/Parker connections

Jerry Schilling's movie production career was the same

and none of them would have ever had a book published

That last line is so true!

No, it's not. Anyone may publish a book.

The Doc is right.



Once again!
