Elvis: King of Comedy?

Posted by on Thu, Jul 6, 2006 at 4:00 AM

There was more to Elvis than talent and charming looks. Elvis was also quite the trickster, according to a soon-to-be-released book by Memphis Mafia member Jerry Schilling.

In Me and a Guy Named Elvis, which hits stores later next month, Schilling reveals the King’s jokester side. Like the time he dropped his pants for Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones or the time he pretended to clobber a guy with a cane for his lousy singing (which actually doesn’t sound all that funny to us).

Just in time for Death Week, the book promises Elvis fans a look into the funny side of the King. — Bianca Phillips
