Colonel Parker's 'Hold'...
I was in conversation with an older gentleman today who is a big Elvis fan and we got to talking about Colonel Parker's managerial tactics regarding EP. The gentleman suddenly stated that there was a speculating rumour about Colonel's so-called 'hold' over Elvis and his career - the rumour goes something like this:
Elvis had accidentally killed a person in a car-crash early on his career and The Colonel was the only witness to this, and so began the tug of emotional blackmail...
Now, I could have heard this rumour many years ago - I can't 100% remember...what do you think guys?
