Colonel Tom Parker (1909-1997) was the mysterious character who shaped the career of Elvis Presley. As The King's talent manager, Parker masterminded every aspect of the singer's rise to fame. This was not a cheap service and Parker charged far more than the usual manager's fee; later in Presley's career he took up to 50 per cent of the star's earnings.
