QUOTE (SweetCaroline @ Feb 8 2010, 03:55 AM) *
We all know The Colonel could be pretty slick.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/whistling.gif)

They did get the Colonel back afterwards ... in a fun sort of way.. giving the Colonel a slight Headache...(?)

RCA and RELEASING THE SONGS ......

Here's the kicker, before the special had even started production,
the Colonel made a deal with NBC to turn over the audiotapes from the special to RCA without charge.

A deal that would have amounted to millions of dollars in music rights.

Elvis got a free album out of the budget of the television special.

And after the special was delivered to NBC, the Colonel mailed to my home a $1,500 cheque along with an agreement for me to sign waiving all my legal rights to the soundtrack and congratulating me on the release of the album.

Instead of signing the agreement, I sent the unsigned check back to the Colonel with a short note telling him where he could put it.

To this day, Bones or I have never received one penny from the soundtrack earnings."

He was as big as the whole country itself, as big as the whole dream. He just embodied the essence of it and he was in mortal combat with the thing. Nothing will ever take the place of that guy.
