Elvis Presley made more money in his lifetime than any other performer in history. Yet, when he died, his estate was nearly bankrupt. In Elvis Inc., author Sean O'Neal reveals the abysmal condition the estate was in when Elvis died, and how Elvis Presley Enterprises turned the estate into the huge success it is today, raking in more than $100 million a year.Here is a glimpse of what's revealed in Elvis Inc.:
Why the second floor of Graceland is off-limits to the public
Why Elvis never toured outside the United States
How much Elvis' relationship with Colonel Tom Parker cost himAbout the AuthorSean O'Neal is an acknowledged Elvis expert and collector of Elvis memorabilia. He has been studying Elvis Presley's life and music for over twenty years. Just as the King of Rock n' Roll will never really die, so will his financial empire continue to fascinate. Part way between a biography of the musical icon and a business book, Elvis Inc. recounts the fiscal rise of the legend and details the problems and possibilities that later developed with the massive estate he left behind. Penned with the sensitivity of a fan and the perception of a business writer, Sean O'Neal recounts how Presley's fortunes crashed and burned and then were resurrected to previously unimagined heights -- even after the King had abdicated his position in the material world.
