    I'm really glad to hear this about Sonny's book.
    Promised a friend of mine I'd read it & give him a chance.

    I hope I like it as well........
    Right now, I'm reading the policemans book.
    Not bad, not bad at all.

    For me, one of the most interesting chapters is one of the last ones, which is about the other Maffia members, and what they are doing today ( that is, if they are still alive). Its also better for Priscilla fans NOT to buy the book......

    There's one part of the book that had be laughing hysterically, and it's where he talks about Elvis' monkey "Scatter", and how one time Elvis hid the monkey in a guest room while this couple were in there lol, and also how Scatter would go after women.....some funny material

    Theres always two sides to every story.

    His book is a good read....even for those who don't like Sonny.

    Personally I think Sonny is a good guy.

    I agree....Sonny finally sets the record straight on EWH as well....give the guy a chance...geez.....it's been thirty years....that's too darn long to hold a grudge against someone we really don't even know personally....we only know him because of his association with Elvis....from what I've heard from other people (and I get the same feeling from reading the book) is that Sonny West truly loved Elvis and still does and deeply regrets writing "Elvis: What Happened".

    But then again...some people's opinion of Sonny will never change no matter how much good you say about him...

    You make some good comments and I agree with them.Sonny was a good friend to Elvis.It's impossible for him to be judged fairly by so many fans.Im guessing many of them probably never even read EWH.To many he was just a backstabber who betrayed Elvis and they are content with that image whether it's completely deserved or not.
