    Its a fact a lot of money has been made from the 2 words Elvis Presley-who individually made the most would have to be Lisa through her birth right.
    l agree Lisa has made the most.

    A little informatiom on the MM jobs today:

    - Billy Smith works in a machine company
    - Marty Lacker does consulting work in the music industry and has an internet enterprise launched with his daughter.
    - Joe Esposito is a casino host in at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.
    - Lamar Fike went back to the music business after elvis died working with Jimmy Bowen running his publishing company.
    - Red West is a screen actor and wrote songs for Elvis.
    - Sonny West has had different jobs since Elvis fired him from raising arabian horses to making western costume jewelry.

    My choice on who made and is making the most in the Elvis world would be first Priscilla and second Col. Parker. No doubt about it.
    Facts? Parker was getting 50% of Elvis earnings and Priscilla is living off Evis since the day she went to live with him to Graceland, continued after they divorced and havenīt stoped since the day he died. Never a failed marriage was so profitable...

    I have read what some of them do-but this is the first time I saw anything on Marty and Billy.

    The part about Billy is the truth, but he also hurt his back and was unable to work. He lives in a average home in a little town down south.

    Good jobs on the research Dounut!!!

    Im pretty sure Marty is retired from that.

    I believe some those job descriptions are from the video's "All The Kings Men" and that video is a bit old now!

    Lamar I believe is working nearly all the time with an Elvis collector.

    Thanks, Donut. I don't believe I've ever seen all these either.

    My guess of who made/makes the most money would have to be Priscilla and Lisa . At least in the earlier years.
    I'm guessing it would be Sillerman now.

    Lisa still rakes it in as well the pay off for 'expanding the business' from Sillerman.

    No, itīs in Sonny West last book, them and all the rest that were part of his entourage but I didnīt feel like posting them all.
    And yes, Lamar works with an Elvis collector. He is recuperating from a cancer I think...

    I canīt count Lisa for this, she is the only one that deserves it by right like her or not. It was Elvis choice to leave everything to her so I respect that.
    What I find disgusting is how her mother has managed to be part of that even though she wasnīt even mentioned on his will. He didnīt even want to lend her his plane and told her to fly comercial when she asked for it to him after the divorce so guess what he would have think of her position now...

    WE have to think about people who work for EPE too, they making money off Elvis. Think about that, and I think that Lisa, don't count because it's her money now.
    How about BMG/RCA they still making off from Elvis, it's under same pay that Elvis was Pay in 1977, Elvis needs A Raised That I think .

    Itīs doctored and meant to be a joke. I used to have that guinea fowl as my avatar and thought to make it a part of an Elvis picture... just a silly thing.
    That guinea fowl never met Elvis or got a kiss from him.

    Tom
    Elvis is being paid the same by RCA in 1977 as he is now?

    Where do you get this rubbish from? He's dead, he doesent get paid, his estate benefits but Elvis doesen't. And the 1977 pay? Are you referring to "x" amount of dollars or %?!

    Geez!
