I was watching the Funeral dvd [FINAL CURTAIN] and spotted George Klein as a pall bearer, (IMG:style_emoticons/default/undecided.gif) but who else carried in the King ?

Dennyelvis, I found the answer to your question.
I found it on this site http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Who_were_the_pal...y's_funeral

Joe Esposito, Elvis' road manager; Dr. George Nichopoulos, the physician who pronounced him dead; Charlie Hodge, a guitarist and close friend; Lamar Fike, a friend; Billy Smith and Gene Smith, both Elvis's cousins; Jerry Schilling, a friend; and George Klein, former Memphis radio disk jockey.

I did not see JD about this topic.
I count 8 bearers to carry Elvis.
Why was Elvis's coffin so heavy to need 8 bearers?
Most funerals you see 4 bearers.

It's a honour to be bearer; in this case you can't forget nobody. Perhaps it was mentioned in the last will.

Think i remember JD saying it was lead lined, that accounted for the weight, of course that led to many conspiracy theories .............
