MARRIED TO THE MOB? 

MARRIED TO THE MOB?

Or just visiting? In the documentary The "Elvis Mob, such notable Presley cronies as Joe Esposito, Sonny West, Jerrry Schilling, and Lamar Fike lounge around in a barroom sitting and talk about their glory days. The boys pull no punches as they discuss the 24/7 party that only ended when Elvis made his last lonely walk to the bathroom. And speaking of bathrooms, while writing agbout The Elvis Mob for the Courier Mail, media critic Mike O'Connor notes that the Memphis Mafia gratefully accepted "the crumbs that fell from the King's sexual table," and quotes the always eloquent Lamar Fike's proud declaration, "We got more ass than a toilet seat." Ah yes, but were you as discriminating?
