book.jpgAs the HBO series Entourage begins its seventh season, we find out what goes on inside a real-life entourage with Jerry Schilling, a member of Elvis Presley's famed "Memphis Mafia."

Schilling describes the psychology and social structure of this particular ecosystem and how it's even more necessary to a big star than good lighting.
