He was a flamboyant promoter whose pre-Elvis experience included shows called The Great Parker Pony Circus and Tom Parker And His Dancing Turkeys and was a veteran of carnivals, medicine shows and various other entertainment enterprises. 1958: Buddy Holly and Maria Elena Santiago were married at Buddy's parents' home in Lubbock, Texas. 1960: "It's Now or Never" became Elvis ...
Charro!, Part 2 of 2 Elvis Presley's twenty-ninth movie was "Charro!", a western filmed in Arizona during the late summer of 1968. At the time, Elvis had just finished taping his 1968 television special, "Elvis", which would air in December. He was looking great and grew a full beard for this rugged role. Elvis' entourage, as well as his manager Colonel Parker, got into the spirit and also grew beards. The working title of the film was "Come *** Come Sundown". Barbara Werle played Sara Ramsey, the sherriff's wife. This was not Werle's first time to work with Elvis - she had had roles in the Elvis films "Tickle Me" and "Harum Scarum". This longtime character actress played many roles in both film and television productions. Among her credits are the films "The Battle of the Bulge" and "The Rare Breed" and television series such as "The Virginian", "Ironside", and "Laredo".

Despite his meta-legendary status, believe it or not, I still think Elvis Presley was underrated. He had a voice with perfect pitch, so there was no need for him to practice, he could open his mouth and sing. He also had a 4 Octave range (the same as an opera singer). He was stifled from offering the even greater potential than the awesome talent he displayed, down to Colonel Parker. The man controlled Elvis rigidly, never let him leave America for example (Parker was an illegal Dutch immigrant, thus wouldn't be allowed back in the US). Moreover, he stole all of Presley's money, leaving Priscilla and Lisa-Marie penniless. Priscilla built her money from nothing, giving it to her daughter. Random rant over!
Lisa Matthews status share. Some exciting news for ALL ELVIS FANS. We now have confirmed and secured a date for our show Starring myself ELVIS THE ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE to appear at the WORLD FAMOUS London Palladium ON Sunday APRIL 7TH 2013. ( In 1970, the Palladium attempted to have Elvis Presley himself to perform 14 shows over a period of 7 days. This would have been Elvis's first overseas appearance, unfortunately Colonel Parker declined.) :( This will be a landmark event for all Elvis fans and a dream come true for myself, therefore when tickets do go on sale I will be asking for all Elvis fans and my loyal supporters to kindly back and support me. Tickets are not on sale yet, however they will be towards the end of the month.

December 12,1960 Stayed on the charts for 5 weeks "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" By Elvis Presley Music by Lou Handman and lyrics by Roy Turk. It was written in 1926, first published in 1927 and most notably revived by Elvis Presley in 1960 (with the title spelled Are You Lonesome To-Night?) Morgan's version was followed by the best-known recording, by Elvis Presley, recorded on April 4, 1960 along with I Gotta Know, and engineered by Nashville sound pioneer Bill Porter. For this recording, guitarist Scotty Moore played on Elvis` acoustic guitar; the Gibson J200 model. Reportedly, Colonel Parker (it was one of his wife's favorite songs) persuaded Elvis to record his own rendition of this song. Elvis' version was based on the Blue Barron Orchestra version from 1950 with spoken segment. It went on to be one of the biggest-selling singles of 1960, peaking at number one on the Billboard pop chart for six weeks and peaking at number three on the R&B charts. Elvis, occasionally during live performances, would rand ...
The original rock star, Elvis Presley, had Colonel Tom Parker, an ex-carnival barker who believed in both Elvis as a talent and a means to further himself in the wild new world of entertainment. His motto: Promotion! Promotion! Nothing was too outrageous and gaudy was the norm. The Rockin' Saints also had someone who believed in them. Taxi driver, Sam Scott never worked a carnival crowd but he knew the value of promotion even if it was on his modest terms. He was our Colonel Parker.
