Remembering Red West

Red West, Elvis' longtime friend, bodyguard and driver, died on Tuesday, July 18.

Red worked for Elvis for about 20 years, and he took on small roles in Elvis movies such as "Flaming Star." He also wrote or co-wrote several songs that Elvis recorded, including "Separate Ways," "If You Talk in Your Sleep" and "If Every Day Was Like Christmas." Red later became a full-time actor, earning roles in TV shows and movies such as "Black Sheep Squadron" and "Road House." Learn more about Elvis and Red. 

Our deepest sympathy to the family, friends and fans of Red West.
