I don't recall a quote from Parker in Aug 1977 using it, either.

well, sort of.....here goes nothing:

"My boy Elvis gets a $5 allowance from me for every show he performs"

"Dress up Elvis and push him onto the stage; i need a new Lincoln!"

"We're not going to perform in England unless i can buy some fake passports for myself."

"Elvis...call a doctor for me, i accidentally swallowed my cigar!"

"In my entire life, i've never told my boy what to do or threatened him...i'm one of the good guys!"

and this quote was reportedly uttered on August 17,1977 by the Colonel to Vernon:
"Can we charge the fans admission to see Elvis' body?"

Not sure about these. The Colonel was good for Elvis in the 50s but after that let him down.

This is the quote Parker made after hearing of Elvis's death that pretty much sums up his personality and the type of scum bag he really is.......

"That Won't Change A Damn Thing....I'll Still Get My Fifty Percent !!!!!"
