SHARE ELVIS’ FORMER MANAGER STILL ROCK ‘N’ ROLLING AT 85

Col. Tom Parker is living proof you're never too old to rock 'n' roll. Parker still enjoys an occasional Elvis movie on television and likes to reminisce about the man he made king.

Parker, who turns 85 Sunday, got his start in the business at age 9 in the circus. It was as Elvis Presley's manager that Parker gained international attention. He took over Presley's career in the mid-1950s. Presley died in 1977.A birthday bash scheduled Saturday at the Las Vegas Hilton celebrates "the colonel's wonderful world of show business."
