Memphis Mafia Stories


Throughout the years, Elvis, for brief periods of time had a personal hairdresser travel with him, Larry Geller and Sal Orifice would fill that role. When Elvis was in Los Angeles, Pat Parry Gerson, a long time friend and talented hair stylist, was called to do the job. Pat was often a guest at Graceland and a good friend to Elvis and the guys. Pat today is a hair stylist in Beverly Hills

Elvis - Scatter and Patti Parry

October 27 - Patti Parry Has Died
Patti Parry spent 17 years being a little sister to Elvis and is acknowledged as being the only female member of the Memphis Mafia

"Elvis didnít have a mum, he didnít have a sister so I was a girl who was around who could nurture him. He needed that nurturing. I was the only girl there and if he needed it I would give him a lot of help and a shoulder to cry on. I was his little sister, I was a very lucky girl..." reflects  Patti Parry

Elvis was not happy with his hairstyle after he saw the dress rehearsal tape of Aloha Special. and wanted it changed for the final show. Parry " I did his hair for that! I wasn't there for the rehearsal and Elvis was very unhappy about that first haircut. It looked like hell! Elvis wanted his hair cut properly and it was Marty Lacker, who was in LA, called me and we flew in together. I cut his hair for the final show and Marty Pasetta, the producer, said to me that Elvis had never looked so great. While I cut his hair Elvis said, "Patti, I've got really thin, I feel really good"

Elvis was very happy and really stoked about doing the show. I think that was his prime, he looked gorgeous. We were all staying on the 30th floor of the Hilton and had a ball together. The sad thing was that we all went to the beach but Elvis would be stuck in his room. We all also went to see the Arizona Memorial that he had put a lot of money into but again he couldn't go"

In the early 60s Elvis took on problematic member of the Memphis Mafia a 40 pound chimpanzee called Scatter from the owner who performed on a Memphis children's show. Although trained for the act and living with Elvis was another thing. Scatter was just not use to being caged to travel across country and when released would play havoc with the ladies. Attacking maids at hotels. As much of a terror as Scatter was he was also capable of behaving like a gentleman,  Alan Fortes used to love for a drive in the Rolls Royce and buying him little suits and try to teach him how to drive. 

After Scatter had bitten several of the Memphis Mafia member and no one was able to put him back into his cage Elvis decided have a face to face with the chimp. Elvis looked Scatter in the eye and trying to keep a straight face, and yelled, "You coconut head you'd better get downstairs in your cage, And you'd better not bite anybody anymore you hear" With his hand folded in front of him Scatter slowly walked down the stairs marched to the basement and into his cage. Elvis fell on the floor laughing.

Elvis would wait  until the den was filled with girls and everyone was real comfortable then yell, "Okay boys let him out"  At about four foot tall Scatter loved the girls.  Alan had taught Scatter to look up the girls dresses 

On that night Pat Parry was a guest and she didn't know about Scatter who made a b-line for her. His arms waving and screaming and trying to look up her dress. She told him to stop. But Scatter was determined to get his way with Pat. She told Scatter "You do that one more time and I'm going to knock the hell out of you" Well naturally Scatter did it again. And Pat got on her knees and hit the Chimp under his chin. Scatter did a back flip and landed on the couch - dazed. He looked at in disbelief and ended up with a bump on his head the size of the golf ball.
