Known affectionately as Diamond Joe, for his passion for wearing expensive sparkling gems, Joe Esposito continues to have a lot of say about he years he spent as road manager for Elvis Presley. In addition to releasing a DVD, Elvis: His Best Friend Remembers, that included personal recollections, photographs and memorabilia, he has authored several books on his former employer. He served as a consultant for a sixteen hour-long PBS documentary about the late King of Rock and Roll. His first book, Good Rockin' Tonight, published by Simon and Schuster, was edited from a five hundred page manuscript to a two hundred and fifty page book.
Diamond Joe briefly worked as road manager for Michael Jackson, although he resigned after eighteen months to spend more time with his family. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi
