"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.

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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Different perspective from Sonny. I tend to believe much of it since it shows a warm, caring sensitivity from the author. Good read of any Elvis fan, male or female.Published 9 days ago by Lawrence Bouligny

I truly believe Sonny had Elvis best interest at heart. I think this is a truthful book. I hadn't noticed any contradictions as I have in other books written about Elvis. Read morePublished 3 months ago by debbba
