    Colonel Parker interview (clip)...

    I don't know if anyone has seen this, but it's the first time I've seen Colonel Parker in an interview of this length...

    Original airing date: August 15th 1987

    thanks Franny for sharing....from listening to him....he is still in denial about his role in Elvis' downfall so to speak.....he keeps saying "you can't tell Elvis Presley to do anything" but the Colonel sure did alot of it.....and kept him from doing what he ultimately wanted (Elvis)......just my opinion.

    You're welcome, Kelly!

    I have always read that Elvis didn't stand his ground with the Colonel, so it could be he's in denial...

    Thank you Franny, I had seen this interview with the Colonel before but I'm glad you posted it. The man was a known con-artist so whatever he says I take with a grain of salt.

    Thanks for posting Franny, I have never seen this interview before.. he was a con man until the end. I guess he would say that he is still promoting Elvis from the beyond today. Dovey

    You're welcome, everyone!

    I agree, Dovey! I still can't believe he made 50% of Elvis' profits!

    Wow! Great clip! Thanks Franny

    Nice to hear that Parker still had that Dutch accent

    Love Parkers reply to Jerry Wald the producer when Wald offered a dramatic role to Elvis and he told Parker he could almost guarantee Elvis would get an Oscar.
    he said "We don't go to the Oscars"
