    Col. Parkers reaction to Elvis going to meet Nixon

    I was wondering if anyone knew how Colonel Parker reacted to Elvis bolting to Washington alone then eventually arranging the Nixon meeting? Independance of action and thought were not what Parker liked from Elvis.
    I know what Vernon, Priscilla, and many of the guys reactions were-but how about Parker?

    That's a very interesting question, but I've never heard about what the Colonel thought either. Hope someone will be able to answer your question.

    He said that dang Elvis, he needed to tell me so I could use that publicity and make money off of it.

    I obviously don’t know.

    Pretty good guess though! Sounds true to form.

    I would have loved to see the expression on his face as he took the call telling him Elvis has disappeared and Vernon and Priscilla had no idea where he was .............that had to be a Kodak moment.
