Schilling goes to great lengths to sanitize Elvis's flaws and his own by glossing over many of the details about Elvis's infidelities, his immorality and his well-documented drug abuse. Jerry does a very admirable job of giving fans a chance to really see Elvis not as just a superstar entertainer but also as a man who had personal dreams, vulnerabilities, doubts, and challenges as a human being. stormed into the lounge, walked right up onstage, hoisted his cane like he was going clobber the guy and said, 'If you're going to do it, do it right. Ako volite Elvisa, svakako preporučam, no mislim da bi svakako trebala pročitati i Priscillinu knjigu i vidjeti onu "drugu" stranu priče. Iz Schillingove knjige, Elvisa upoznajemo kao zapravo jednu vrlu jednostavnu osobu, koja je puno držala do svoje obitelji i obiteljskih vrijednosti, ali isto tako osobu koja je po meni bila pomalo bipolarna i prilično eksplozivna.

Jerry Schilling foi o anjo da guarda de Elvis, de Lisa Marie e, até os dias de hoje, é um grande amigo de Priscilla. Jerry was also there for some pivotal moments and gives us his memories of them - meeting the Beatles, meeting Nixon, the Star is Born meeting with Streisand. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11. I consider all the Memphis Mafia books to be essential reading, but this one is different to most and that makes it one of the best. Me and a Guy Named Elvis : My Lifelong Friendship with Elvis Presley' Paperback by Jerry Schilling, Chuck Crisafulli. Schilling stays away from much of the lascivious details that might malign Elvis but explains how life on the road and the environment did not make for a good home life - for Elvis and Priscilla or any of the guys.

When you first met him playing football sharing that even though he was a star he was kind, generous friendly. Jerry tells his story of a young boy growing up poor with no real family before fate changed his life during one Sunday afternoon game of football—and he tells it with humility, honesty, and dignity. Me and a Guy Named Elvis looks at Presley from a friend’s perspective, offering readers the man rather than the icon — including insights into the creative frustrations that lead to Elvis’s abuse of prescription medicine and his tragic death. I don't blame him for this, but I hope he has the real book in a safety deposit box to be released upon his death, but I won't hold my breath.What I didn't like was, how Schilling skipped over Elvis's death, it was like a page and then, straight back into what Jerry was doing; IE, managing the Beach Boys. Jerry Schilling has spent forty years in the entertainment industry as an actor, a film editor, producer, and a manager for such acts as the Beach Boys, Jerry Lee Lewis and Billy Joel.

Even though Jerry was a younger kid, Elvis went out of his way to include him in the group, and over time, they developed a genuine friendship. The book is an easy read with lots of interesting dates times and events that Jerry had with Elvis Presley. Off the slopes, Elvis spent a lot of time with … Denver policemen he had met on past trips to the city. Jerry is one of the very few people who had the opportunity to know Elvis long before he became "the king," and he spent over two decades as a member of Elvis's most trusted group of friends - the Memphis Mafia.

He picked fabrics, decided on color schemes, chose the on-board audiovisual system, and even okayed the gold fixtures in the bathrooms… The same design team working on the Lisa Marie also customized Air Force One. What Jerry Schilling has written in Me and a Guy Named Elvis is an account of one man's experience, a personal memoir that, while it places its narrator squarely in the midst of historic events, never claims credit for those events in the way that so many self-serving memoirs are inclined to do. Even at times when Elvis was unreasonable or selfish, there was a lot of grace extended because of his admiration and love for Elvis. But as Jerry gave as his reason for leaving Elvis a few years before his death: I did not want to be a yes man or an asshole.

A man of great talents, but also a man who struggled mightily to find a balance in his life between his creative passions and the real-world challenges he constantly faced. Inače su mi glazbene biografije jedne od najdražih knjiga i zaista obožavam na neki način ući u život ljudi čiju glazbu svakodevno slušam. Your love of Elvis came out in every page thank you for writing a classy book and being such a good friend to Elvis and his family. This is exactly how I pictured Jerry Schilling after finishing his book "Me and a Guy Named Elvis: My Lifelong Friendship with Elvis Presley".His music lives on, and, almost 30 years after his death, his life and achievements continue to have deep emotional impact on all of us. They had always been supportive of Elvis, even welcoming him into their own inner circle of police officers. A couple of guys had blind-sighted Elvis, pretending to come to him for an autograph… swing at him when they got close enough… throwing a punch and then driving away. Me and a Guy Named Elvis looks at Presley from a friend's perspective, offering readers the man rather than the icon - including insights into the creative frustrations that lead to Elvis' abuse of prescription medicine and his tragic death. I grew-up eating peanut butter and banana sandwiches and still cannot believe I didn’t have a fried one until Graceland -- the man was a genius!
