From the Publisher
"No one loved Elvis more than Sonny West. He was a true and loyal friend to Elvis and he did what he could to protect and advise him. Sonny's book reveals some of the saddest parts of Elvis's life that a lot of us suspected but didn't want to accept. If only Elvis had listened to his friend, perhaps he would be with us today. It truly shows us how hard it was to be The King." -- Lee Majors
"Among all of Elvis Presley's close associates, no one tells stories that are more entertaining than Sonny West. He can mesmerize audiences for hours with his Elvis tidbits. Likewise, I have followed Marshall Terrill's budding career as a biographer and he is quickly heading straight to the top. West and Terrill. If this were the New York Yankees, you'd be thinking Ruth and Gehrig or Mantle and Maris. Powerful!" -- Bill E. Burk, Publisher, Elvis World magazine
From the Inside Flap
Elvis: Still Taking Care of Business is one of the most authentic portraits ever written about one of the greatest American entertainers. It is a balanced, respectful, and insightful look at Elvis's last two decades written by Sonny West, a true Presley insider and charter member of the infamous Memphis Mafia.
West, who worked and played with Presley from 1960 until the year before Elvis's death in 1977, was there for it all. Many books about Presley are written by third parties who never even met the man. Not this book. West was like a brother to Elvis, and has great insight into one of the most beloved, yet complex, figures of the 20th century. Elvis: Still Taking Care of Business is a roller-coaster ride that follows Presley's personal and professional ups and downs, his mercurial temper, his generous spirit, and his tragic decline. Sonny West had a front-row seat for it all, and now so will anyone who reads this book. Included are stories and photographs that have never been published before! A special section on former Memphis Mafia members called "Where Are They Now?" brings fans up-to-date on the lives of Elvis' closest confidants. West also answers some tough questions from fans in a special appendix. Presented in an entirely different tone from West's first book, Elvis: What Happened?, this is a loving, fun, and poignant book that is sure to enthrall Elvis Presley fans around the globe.
